What’s Different about Heritage Breeds?

What’s Different about Heritage Breeds? 

 

The American Livestock Breeds Conservancy states that heritage chicken breeds must be an American Poultry Association (APA) standard breed. The chickens also must be allowed to mate naturally, lead a long, productive outdoor life, and maintain a slow growth rate. It takes heritage chicken breeds at least 16 weeks to reach market weight.

RECIPE - TEQUILA ROSEMARY GARLIC

NEW RECIPE

Tequila - Rosemary - Garlic - Pepper -  Olive oil

As many of you already know, I am not a cook..so I experiment with the free range, fresh poultry, as often as I can. This is something I came up with today and it was MARVELOUS!

1 Rainbow Ranch Farms Chicken (Fresh - 2.5-3.0lbs), 3 Cloves Fresh Garlic (chopped), Garlic Powder, 1/2 Cup Tequila Orendain Ollitas Reposado, Olive Oil, Ground Black Pepper,  Ground Rosemary (from my garden, dried in 2008).

I washed the chicken inside and out, placed it in a large bowl (breasts up), sprayed it with olive oil (until covered), sprinkled black ground pepper until it covered, then sprinkled the Garlic powder generously, followed with the rosemary (very generously. I poured tequila inside the cavity, then stuffed it with 3 large cloves of chopped garlic, and let it sit for about 30 minutes covered with a towel.

I have a small countertop convection oven (DecoSonic)the temperatures are in celsius. I placed the chicken breasts up on the rack, cooked it on 200c for 30 minutes, then I flipped it over (breasts down) on 200c for an additional 30 minutes. Finally I flipped it one more time breasts up and browned it on 220c for 20 minutes.

It was GREAT!

RAINBOW RANCH FARMS  TURKEY RECIPES

9 STEPS TO A BASIC TURKEY RECIPE: Add seasonings to taste. Since cooking times vary and can depend on you elevation, humidity, ambiant temperatures, oven working conditions etc.. this is based on a meat thermometer.

This recipe I used on a 39# White Holland Turkey Tom and he was simply delicious. He finished out tender, moist and bursting with natural flavor. I cooked him without any seasoning, no salt, no pepper "NOTHING", and the meat was almost falling off the bones.
