How to Debone Duck Feet
"This reads more like a Guantánamo Bay interrogation technique than instructions for processing duck feet."

The patented method is maddening and involves freezing, thawing, slow cooking, clipping toes, soaking in bleach and hot water, inserting a tube, yanking bones out by hand, etc. This reads more like a Guantánamo Bay interrogation technique than instructions for processing duck feet.
How does the resulting duck web taste? Lin says, "slippery yet crunchy like seaweed with dimples." I'm not sure if I'm drawn to that. Surely my Chinese ancestors are looking at me with shame.
