I’ve never tried these, but I sometimes see them in jars next to the cash registers at gas stations. Are they any good? There doesn’t seem to be much meat on them. Does the pickling process somehow make the bone and cartilage edible?
(I once had a Chinese roommate who ate chicken feet. He said they’re a delicacy in China and he couldn’t believe how cheap they are here. Well, I guess they would be expensive if they were popular. Just imagine how many chickens you have to kill to get a pound of feet! And no, the bones and claws aren’t edible, you just eat the fatty skin. I tried them – not disgusting, but not something I would go out of my way for.)
