Eating Crow – For Real!

Thursday, June 17, 1943

In today’s “Day By Day On The Farm,” columnist Bob Becker advised readers to eat crow. Noting that “the war brings new foods into the American diet,” he pointed out that “crows are abundant” and that “Thousands of sportsmen who’ve eaten crow meat in the middle west know that the birds are edible and can be served in several appetizing ways.” How appetizing? Try sautéed in butter with mushrooms, salt pork and small onions. “(Here’s a video tutorial on creating crow cutlets.) Crow is like chicken,” he concluded. In other news, Russia promised to support a free and independent Poland after the war. The Polish people were ecstatic but we know now how that turned out.
