How do you celebrate Scavenger Terra Madre day on December 10th?
We challenge you to an Arc of Taste Scavenger Hunt for
local endangered food on the Slow Food Ark of Taste. Here we go with the second food we found: Plymouth Rock Chicken.
Happy cooking and eating. Please see details below and a suggested recipe below.
As a hardy, docile, broody and excellent producer of both meat and eggs, which it lays year-round, the Plymouth Rock Chicken is a quintessential American breed. This bird was developed in the mid-19th century as a dual-purpose chicken. The chicken has yellow skin and lays eggs that are varying shades of brown. The Plymouth Rock was probably developed in Massachusetts, hence its name, but until World War II, the Plymouth Rock chicken was not known in the US. The Plymouth Rock is considered to be in the recovering category and emphasizes that the bird is still in need of continuing support, promotion and conservation.
