Gizzards are shaped something like an hour glass and I always cut the tough gristle part in the middle out and toss it. Then you have the two more tender end pieces ready to cook however you like.

i do that too, kayelle, but not to all of them. i leave some of the gizzards as they are cause i like to chew on the grisly parts. same thing with the chewy parts of ham hocks, and such....

btw, kayelle, how is your ankle coming along? are you able to get around, drive a car and such? is hubby helping with the cooking? at least where you live, you don't have to worry about the hazards of ice and snow in your travels....

I'll see what I can do. It won't be until after next payday though.

Give them a simmer for 20 minutes in a nicely flavored stock...
My mom always used wine, water, garlic and pepper.
Take them out, let them cool long enough to handle.
Bread in seasoned flour, I like garlic, cayenne, onion and a bit
of poultry seasoning.
Fry them just long enough to crisp the breading, and enjoy!
Great with ranch dip!

I love them in the chicken soup plain, or better yet in a stew.

Thanks for asking, Vit. The breaks were a bone in my right foot and several ribs. I'm really tired of spending the night in my recliner because of the ribs, but dealing with my bed is out of the question. My foot (with a brace thingy) now allows me to walk the length of this small house if I need to do that, but Steve insists on wheeling me in the borrowed transport wheel chair to keep me off of it as much as possible. If this accident was due to ice, and not just my clumsiness I'd never leave the house in winter again!
