Hi! How have you guys been? I've been busy with a lot of things... work, home stuff, family stuff. I'm sure you all understand. This past month I did a lot of cooking for Greener Grass Farms. I cooked for two farm tours, and I got to use a new piece of meat to me - a stewing hen. When Dan presented the stewing hens, I honestly thought how much different can they actually be from a plain ol chicken. I was totally wrong, and I learned so much about this flavorful bird.
So, what is a stewing hen? Basically they are laying hens that no long produce eggs. Old ladies I suppose ha. In their package, they look like a normal meat bird. I made stock for chicken soup. Here's what I learned about stewing hens.
