Fried Gizzards

Have you ever had fried chicken gizzard before? Am sure some of you might say "Ew, do you eat that?" lol....Don't worry, hubby said the same thing.
Gizzards are secondary stomachs used by birds to grind their food before digestion. Because birds don't have teeth, they must fill their gizzards with small stones to achieve the same goal. Gizzards contain a very tough inner membrane, surrounded by a muscular pouch which provides the grinding action. Gizzards are part of the group of foods called offal, which also includes beef tripe, chitlins (pork intestines), and hearts.
I bought this chicken gizzards at the Filipino store. I made it yesterday for myself, because hubby and Akesha don't like eating it...hehhehe! I actually got this idea from Ate Cecile of Kitchen...the Heart of our Home. Thanks AteCes for sharing me your secret.
While many people may recoil at the thought of eating bird stomachs, gizzards are actually a popular food item around the world. Gizzards may be poached, boiled, ground, or even deep fried. Turkey gizzards are also included in the collection of neckbones, hearts, livers and gizzards known as giblets. These giblets are often used to make a stock or broth for dressings and soups. The gizzards alone can also be added to soup stocks for additional flavor. Gizzards are deep-fried at a very high heat for several minutes until done. Chicken gizzards are often served with a honey mustard or barbecue sauce.
