Receipt for Capon


For the Dutch receipt (recipe), To make a Hutspot from a Capon,  the first step is  Take a capon, which is a castrated domestic rooster fattened for eating.  Those of us that have plucked many roosters know that only one is necessary for a flock and the flesh needs to be stewed.  By castrating the males early, the flesh is much improved and more tender.

  1. I’ve only had capon in Italy and was surprised how tasty it was. On the menu it was translated as “rooster.” I’m not Dutch but I do love both hutspot and stampot, especially with fried cod (kibbeling) on top.
