2 Year Old Retired Layer weighing between 1.1 – 1.3kg each. Often supplied frozen but can be ordered fresh.
+ Eating Description
Similar to turkey, but gamier and full of flavour. Often used for curry dishes, stocks, soups and broths.
+ Cooking Recommendation
To make stewing hens tender, they need to be submerged in water and slow-cooked for a few hours until the meat falls off the bone. You can do this in a crockpot, instant pot or on the stove. (There is a sweet spot though in how long to do this so that the meat doesn’t become flavorless!) We recommend 5-6 hours to be the perfect amount of time to where the meat is delicious and tender enough to eat and use it in all sorts of recipes, and the broth is flavorful enough for soup or just drinking.
Perfect for anyone looking for really good produce – restaurants, the home chef and foodies.
