My grandma grew up on a farm but she was a very plain chef. I went to her house for lunch one day during a break between college classes. She had a pot of chicken noodle soup bubbling on the stove smelling sooo good. I set the table and she brought over bowls of the great smelling soup. I was starving until I saw that chicken foot STANDING in the middle of my bowl surround by noodle and vegetables!

I love you Big Nana,
D

Great story! I notice you called here Big Nana? When two of my great grandmas were alive we called them little great-grandma and big great-grandma. Not to their faces of course, but this was just because of their size and height, one was very very petite and one was let's just say not petite. They both lived until I was in college, one until age 97 and one until age 101. Longevity runs on my Mom's side of the family.

A chicken FOOT?????  I don't know if I could have eaten that soup either. 
Of course, if she had not put that in your bowl,
you would most likely have loved every spoonfull.

I hate to mention this, but since my grandma was around during the depressions, and being an immigrant, she used all parts of the animal. Although I wouldn't eat some of those things, her chicken soup which was also made with chicken feet was the best that I ever tasted! Sometimes we need to eat with our taste not our eyes. I couldn't eat brains although when ever my Mom cooked them, I would comment on the wonderful aroma, but couldn't get them past my eyes either.

My grandmother did that, too.  If you got the foot it was considered a special honor.  She also ate the neck because that would make you beautiful.  She didn't need the neck to be beautiful.

My husband's favorite soup is homemade chicken soup with fine noodles - minus the chickenfoot of course.

My parents also grew up during the depression and nothing was wasted while I grew up on the farm. I remember my mom making pumice from the fat juices left over after she boiled ribs. She would add flour and cinnamon to the fat juices, which made it gel. She then sliced it, fried it and served it with syrup. I couldn't quite stomach that either, so I just had a bowl of corn flakes!!!

Years ago that was common practice to use chicken feet in your soup,there is a market near by that still sell chicken feet.Maybe that's what Grandma cooking was so good,the secret ingredient.
