Snacking while eGulleting... (Part 3)

I notice that recipes for the hearts are bizarre when it comes to cooking times. One online recipe suggests frying them for up to 25 mintutes! Mine had about three! Those in the recipe would be inedible. They toughen up once they get beyond medium rare, something the recipe acknowledges far too late.

I have never actually eaten chicken hearts, but I suspect I would enjoy them. They are certainly not readily available, but I’m sure they would be in one of the Asian stores. I see there are those who claim they do not require any preparation prior to cooking, and those who are horrified by this idea. I take it that you are of the latter persuasion.

They're pretty much always to be found at Sobeys and Superstore, but often they're in the frozen section. I buy them occasionally when I think of it.

Well, well, well. I thought it was worth plugging “chicken hearts” into my online store, Fortino’s. And lo and behold there they are. Fresh chicken hearts! Not sure I’m up to actually cleaning and cooking them but it’s nice to know I could.

Might be a cultural thing, but chances are minimal to no prep will be required for our Canadian chicken hearts...must be all the fresh air and snow up north here, our birds hearts are just not bitter!

 

Chuck a pack into your next batch of stock and enjoy.  I like mine with horseradish!
