organic Mary's chicken backs at Whole Foods are only $2.29 a pound. "what good is that", you might ask, "since they're about half bone?"

well, it turns out that of the .47 pound (213g) piece, only about 20g of the remainder was bone. all the fat, water, meat, cartilage, skin, and little bones got eaten, since I used the cooking water to make rice. not a bad deal at all. and the backs are one of the most fat-rich areas of the bird. very tasty and full of easily-accessible calories.
