ISC The Cedar Rapids Gaiette; Sun., Jan. 18, i970 When Chicken Parts Are as Good If your family's favorite dinner is crisp fried chicken one of your Culinary specialties you are likely to ' be on the lookout for a sale on chicken. Discovering one,' you rush to the supermarket, pick up the pre-packaged drumsticks and breasts (your family loves drumsticks and breasts. If only chickens were hatched with four legs and two breasts!) and come home happy -with your purchase. You may not, however, have made the best choice. Although chicken is generally a good buy, it is wise to check the quality and class of your bird. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Consumer and Marketing Service grades whole chickens and chicken parts for both quality and class. The grading -of individual chicken parts has increased greatly this past year, so you should now see the USDA quality grade shield on more cut-up chicken in your market. Highest Quality The highest table quality is USDA Grade A. The USDA Grade A shield on chicken guarantees a fully fleshed and meaty bird one that is attractive in appearance and free from defects. The class names "fryer", "broiler" or "roaster" . indicates that the bird is young and tender. But many housewives today are already USDA quality conscious. How many of us, though, know when chicken SAHG8 famous Poppytrail Dinnervare Including 7 Favorite Patterns In This Sale 20 OFF on Antique Grape, Homestead Provincial, Provincial Fruit, California Tempo, Pepper Tree, Rooster Bleu Pattenrs.

The old geometry law the whole is equal to the sum of its parts does not always apply to chicken prices. Chicken sold whole generally costs a few cents per pound less than cut-up chicken. You would . naturally expect' this since you are charged a few cents for the cutting service, and, of course, if you buy only the meatier parts such as the leg or breast, you must expect to pay more per pound than for a whole chicken. Occasionally, chicken parts are as good a buy as the whole bird. A USDA publication from the Agricultural Research Service, "Family Economics Review", published a chart which gives a guide to these bargains. (Chart at end of story.) Now, return to that sale at your local supermarket. Pick up those drumsticks and breasts again. If the whole chicken is selling for 35 cents a pound, then chicken breasts are an equally good bfiy at 49 MULEKOFFSS, 2'i acres of everything for the home a a 9 a.m.-sj p.m. The American Style in Dinnerware - green and sun-gold in shapes primitive art of the Southwest , 20 OFF V ".-A .

If the breast and drumsticks .are selling at prices less than this, you are actually getting more meat for your money, and the parts are a better bargain than the bird. But if the prices are higher, as is usually the case, you would save money by buying the whole chicken. "But if I buy a whole chicken, what would I do with the back, neck and wings?" you ponder. Broth Try simmering or stewin4L those parts in water so that the meat will separate 'easily from the bone. The broth with its bits of chicken can be" made into an excellent soup by the imaginative addition of vegetables and seasonings. Or, use chicken pieces in a casserole dish, in a chicken pie or even in an exotic dinner of chicken curry with rice. If your family loves fried chicken only, wait until these parts are being sold at good prices. A whole chicken is Safe In oven or dishwasher ; durable! -Ref. SALE $6.95 $5.56 7.95 6.36 5.95,,.
