Thank you, this is even easier than my way. I clean the gizzards, but
do not boil them, I just simmer them slowly in the caramelized diced
onions, to which I add some chicken stock. I also put in some sliced
carrots. I will try to do it as you posted, as that should be much
faster. When I simmer the gizzards, it takes between one and two
hours until they are tender enough and i have to stir them frequently.
I will see whether I can find some in the market today.

The pictures are great!

My mother puts them in the slow-cooker all day with some onions, and
then when they're all juicy, she adds pastina (tiny Italian pasta) and
cooks some more until the pastina is done. I don't like the gizzards
themselves, but the pasta/onions/gizzard broth is *delightful*, and I
can eat bowls of pastina prepared that way.

You can buy them at the meat counter of most grocery stores. If
they're not out, ask the butcher if they have any.

They sometimes sell packs of them at the grocery store.

In fact I bought them in the store as a pack but this time I did not
payed much attention and got a pack with gizzards and hearts as you can
see in the images. It's still good it this combination also.

As a child my grandmother was buying the gizzards with the chicken and
had to clean all the small stones the chicken eats in order to grind
the seeds. I don't think it's the case these days when the chicken eat
some kind of industrialized paste. Sometimes the gizzards muscle is a
bit yellow, then I throw it away.

It is easy indeed to boil the gizzards and you surely don't have to
stir so frequently. Sometimes depending on the gizzards quality you
have to throw the water away. This happens if the chicken was fed some
kind of junk. For me it still takes 30 mins to have the gizzards soft
enough.

I rinse the gizzards and cut them in half. Brown lots of sliced onions
in olive oil, remove onions, add gizzards to oil and quickly brown
them. Return onions to pot, add chicken broth, summer savory, salt &
pepper. If I have some on hand, instead of salt, I add a tablespoon of
"Les herbes salées du Bas-du-Fleuve"**. Bring to a boil, then simmer
until the gizzards are tender. If I'm making this after work I usually
use the pressure cooker.

Once the gizzards are tender I add diced rutabagas, carrots and
potatoes and simmer until tender. Gorge.

** Herbes salées: recipe varies but this particular brand is a mixture
of finely chopped celery, onions, carrots, parsnips, parsley, chevil,
savory, leek, chives, spinach packed with coarse salt. When I was
growing up there was a always a crock of these in the cold room. Mom
or my aunt would make them with onions (fresh from the garden, stalks
included), celery, parsley and carrots. When I got my own place I'd
make a small batch every couple of months or so for soups & stews.

By the way, I heard on a CBC radio show last week that the FDA wouldn't
allow summer savory into the US. I didn't take it too seriously
because it was obvious that neither of the hosts of the show knew what
the herb was but now I wonder, does the FDA have a problem with summer
savory?
