Our neighbors are 'homesteaders' and recently gave us a meat chicken they had raised (I will be honest, DH and I did not even taste it. Pops roasted it when we were in the city and ate the entire thing. He also forgot to save the carcass for me to make soup......grrrrrr) He did say it was different then the 'roaster' variety you can get at grocery stores. Smaller and tasted 'gamier'.
They recently gifted us over two pounds of rabe that a friend of theirs had grown. They gave me half of what they received. So generous. I was able to make two pots of greens.
