    Has Whole Foods ever sold a single chicken foot at $3.99/lb, or a single chicken back at $3.49/lb ?

    Trying Keller's again: brown and white. Not sure how I like not roasting the bones, but it does save time.

    The time/cleaning up savings from not roasting the bones for stock is great. Lately I think I've settled on getting most of the roasted/browned flavors when I make sauces.

    Ya. Last time I had 25 pounds of bones roasting in two separate ovens. It's definitely a production. Though, it does perfume the house rather nicely.

    I guess out of season tomatoes won't make any real noticeable difference for stock.

    I don't recall ever using a non-canned tomato for stock.

    Well, that's what I was thinking of doing. It just calls for paste and a pound of fresh tomatoes. I guess those canned plum tomatoes would work fine, right?

    That's what I've always used. I can't see how it would be a problem. And people certainly use stranger things than canned tomatoes in their stocks. Ducasse, Piege, and Marco Pierre White all call for boullioun cubes, for example, though I can't say that I subscribe to that idea.
