Carolina Coleslaw on My Mind

“We always had barbecue slaw or red slaw served with our pulled pork,” says Robin Lee Starnes. “Growing up in the foothills of North Carolina and enjoying Eastern North Carolina BBQ, the spicy, crunchy texture of the marinated cabbage took BBQ to the next level.” This mayonnaise-free, deli-tasting, slaw is also great with fish and chips, burgers, sandwiches and in tacos.

These chicken embryos we use are also amazing! They thicken a sauce! They whip to peaks! They make cakes and pancakes light! They bind! They turn into a salad or pickled eggs!

Unborn chickens cook up in ever-so-many ways!
