    "Well we had roast chicken faces and fried duck's feet,
    I'm so funny lookin', 'cause, you are what you eat.
    Mama always kept us fed, she never did fergit us
    even when she died, she died upon a bed of lettuce!"

    My mom used to put them in soup.
    She told me they have lots of good stuff in them - gelatin? - to add to the soup.
    She'd eat them cooked, but I never could bring myself to try & I am NOT now & have never been a picky eater.

    We kids would play with them first - pulling the tendons to make the feet say "hello!" [​IMG]

    I made broth with my chicken feet after I processed the broilers. I've also seen a recipe in an very old Joy of Cooking cookbook for chicken combs . Not sure about that one. [​IMG]
