What is the best way to peel a drumstick? How do I know when to stop? I find that a drumstick that's completely peeled disintegrates when cooked.

You shouldn't cook ice cream, especially novelty treats. It will melt. –  Michael at Herbivoracious Aug 24 '10 at 16:51

@hobodave, I think that's a joke. drumstick.com –  yossarian Aug 24 '10 at 17:49
Doh. I left my sense of humor at home today. –  hobodave Aug 24 '10 at 18:00

You scrape just the green stuff away. It doesn't disintegrate because you peel it completely; it disintegrates because you overcook it.

Scrape all of the green stuff away? –  Vulcan Eager Aug 25 '10 at 6:47
