Cornish Hens -- Why So Expensive?

Other than a perfectly cooked Porterhouse it's one of my favorite proteins in a meal.

Why do they cost so fucking much? Has it always been this way?

by Anonymousreply 3205/22/2020

They are just small chickens, You can probably get them fairly cheaply in Aldi.

Guinea Fowl tastes much better. No fucking idea where you can buy it in the US though.

Little Italy?

Are they really that expensive? I never paid attention to the prices of them, but I've seen them for sale at discount grocery stores like Save-A-Lot, in the frozen section.

The most underwhelming thread of 2019. It just had to roll in at the last minute.

Because of the area where you're purchasing them.

OP, they're usually very cheap. Where are you located?

Go for pigeon pie. It was eaten at Thanksgiving before the late 18th c.

I meant late 1800s^

The do have them at Aldi for cheap. When I was a kid mom use to buy them with “parts missing” which made them extra affordable. I’m not sure how the poor little birds had lost their parts.

In my country I can't even find them. Consider yourself fucking lucky you can even get them OP.

by Anonymousreply 1411/28/2019

I don’t get why they’re so special; too much work for tinymeat.

by Anonymousreply 1511/28/2019

Love the flavor.

by Anonymousreply 1611/28/2019

[15] it’s not the size of the meat, it’s how you use it.

by Anonymousreply 1711/28/2019

R16, but are they dark meat or white meat?

A pack of 2 is like $6 where I live. Hardly a bank breaker.

Quit being "extra" a god damned chicken, like a normal person.

by Anonymousreply 3005/22/2020

Two words, OP:

Banzai chickens.

by Anonymousreply 3105/22/2020

What I don't understand is why they take longer to roast than a full size chicken! But I love that little teeny tiny wishbone.
