chicken feet stock, what to do with the feet afterwards?

After you make stock from chicken feet, do you have any chicken feet left, or does it all dissolve in the stock?

I looked at some recipes like these, but they dont mention anything about what to do with the feet after you make the stock?

I like to just eat them! They're crunchy and delicious - great on top of salad with some spicy mustard/horseradish for a strong flavor.

I just throw them away. It never occurred to me to eat them..those toenails look pretty formidable!

My vote is -

Knit lots of little socks to keep them warm...

I don't make stock from chicken feet alone, I add four or five to a roast chicken carcass to make stock - and after the second boiling (I always make 2 lots of stock in my pressure cooker from 1 lot of bones) I just chuck them out. They do make EXCELLENT stock! (If I can't get chicken feet, pigs trotters are also excellent)

I've learned that wings have lots of collagen and make great gelled broth too, and I'm less squeamish about eating the meat off them.

If you cannot stomach to eat the mushy chicken scraps after making stock, turn it into pet food. Big dogs can just eat it as is because the bones are so soft. You can also throw everything into a vitamix (or other good blender) to make it like canned wet food for smaller animals. And yes... at the very least compost it. To just throw it away would be a shame.

mine are so shredded from days of cooking that all that is visible is mushy grit. I strain my broth and bury the solids deep in my compost heap - helps to remineralize the soil!

When I was a child I loved sucking all the fat and skin off the chicken feet served right in the soup. But all the years of no chicken feet intervened, and I can't quite bring myself to do it anymore.

Once you've used them for stock they're pretty bland and not worth messing with.

If you want to try something different you can take the talons off and fry them in butter with hot chili peppers.

I throw them away like other bones I can no longer use. I tried nibbling on one - but it does not taste good.

However, in many cultures they are a treat. In Korea they fry them with hot sauce and eat them - but I do not know the recipe, sorry.
