Here I go again, looking back at the past. lol
This time it's the Christmas dinner of the 1950's.
My Uncle had a very large garden and kept chickens. Back in the 50's chicken was quite expensive and unless you reared your own it wasn't a meat that was eaten freely.
Lamb and Pork were the meats that we ate most so when my Uncle used to come down to see us before Christmas with a chicken we thought we'd won the jackpot. lol
Only one problem. The chicken came fully feathered and with all insides present.
Mum and I used to sit in the scullery (very small kitchen) and pluck the thing and I can tell you we had sore fingers after a while.
Then Mum would gut it and prepare it for cooking.
But, that chicken tasted lovely.
Free range, fed only decent food and not and injection anywhere.
