Pickled chicken organ meats


1 lb. Chicken hearts
1 lb. Chicken gizzards, trimmed
1 c. water
1 c. cider vinegar
3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
2 tbsp. pickling spice
1 med. onion, thinly sliced

Boil the hearts and gizzards together until cooked. Set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, blend next six ingredients together.
In a large canning jar, layer the sliced onion and cooled organs. Cover this with the pickling mix. Cover tightly.
Let stand in the refrigerator for at least a week.

Serve as an appetizer or snack.

Not sure why everyone has such an issue with organ meats. These are delicious.

They are called giblets for a reason. Organ meat gravy sounds disgusting.

Actually, I like giblets although I doubt I'd pickle them.

I'm making a batch of these right now. They're quite good pickled, I usually make a batch every couple of months. As for organ meat gravy, it probably depends on which organ you use. I don't think I would use liver, or pancreas for instance, but you could make a really good gravy with heart meat, though I would probably use beef, rather than chicken, for practical purposes.

i love chicken organs.

my buddy ozzy used to saute hearts, gizzards, and livers in garlic, fresh herbs like sage and thyme, and a load of butter. they were delicious.

my go to chinese takeout does deep fried gizzards that are fantastic in their sour/hot sauce.

i would be interested in trying them pickled, but i'm not allowed to make any organ meats in my house.
The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

Wish the chinese places around here would do that. Sounds delicious. Finding good chinese food in Arizona is not an easy thing to do in any case.

You aren't allowed to make organ meats in the house? Why?

I will eat chicken liver as long as it is in pate' or dirty rice.
If you're gonna make a Key Lime pie, you have to use real Key Limes!
