A Delicious Directory of Drumsticks

The first time I saw canned drumsticks, I didn’t have the foggiest notion what to do with them ~ so I had to buy some. Brought them home and quickly figured out you can’t swallow the outside. So, I confess, I scraped out the insides and ate them with a spoon 🙂 I was hooked at once.

So where was my head the other night when I couldn’t find any information on drumsticks!?! I can’t imagine, but I am now becoming slightly obsessed.

I might even try growing drumsticks, if The Seedman thinks it will work in my neck of the woods.

I haven’t had time to get to the store to hunt for fresh or frozen, but I’m dreaming of drumsticks. To quell my craving till I can go shopping, I’ve collected some drumstick recipes from talented bloggers. So many drumsticks, so little time… and I didn’t even bookmark the recipes using leaves. I intend to try them all.

I hope I’ve done this using proper blog etiquette. If you have a drumstick recipe, website, or story please leave a link or drop me a note and I’ll add it to the delicious drumstick directory.

    Hi Linda,
    That’s a great post summarising what info/recipes are available for drumsticks. I have been meaning to try out a few recipes listed in your post. I just need to make sure that I get my stock of drumsticks the next time I am in my fave SriLankan shop. And hey, thanks for adding me to your blog roll.

  5. Hi Sailaja, I will be patiently and gratefully awaiting ~ more drumstick recipes and your lovely photos! thank you for that generous thought. 🙂

    Nabeela, thank you for tagging me! I will do my best to write something worthy 🙂

    Vineela, you’re most welcome ~ your drumstick pickle is the first thing I want to try. Do you think it could be made with frozen?

    Thank you for adding me, Vaishali, and for your kind words. I am going to the Indian and Asian groceries this weekend so I can get cooking!
