Get the Scoop on Chicken Drumsticks

You may be wondering what the difference is between chicken legs and chicken drumsticks. The answer is simple. The drumstick refers to the lower leg portion of meat, while the leg refers to both the chicken thigh and the drumstick.

Chicken drumsticks are a great option for a crown because they are budget friendly and dry out less easily than chicken breasts. Drumstick with the skin on also have more flavor.

Just make sure you remember to thoroughly pat your chicken dry before placing in the pan. That is the best way to ensure crispy skin on the outside.

Our Top Tips for Buying and Working with Pineapple

  1. Look for Leaves – When buying a pineapple, look for green leaves and firm flesh with a little give. Avoid any fruits with mushy or blotchy patches, or brown leaves.
  2. Your Nose Knows – Ripe pineapple should have a strong pineapple smell if you sniff the bottom of the fruit.
  3. Let it Breathe – If you are eating the pineapple in 1-2 days, it’s okay to store at room temperature, out of the sun. If not, store in the fridge in a plastic bag with holes poked in it. Your pineapple should last 3-5 days.
  4. Knife Skills – Cutting a pineapple can be intimidating, make sure your knife is sharp and don’t be afraid to follow a guide like this one!
