Thank you. I do too. That's what I'm saying.

Organic, Kosher or anything "normal" when it comes to meat, fish and poultry tastes and looks like things are supposed to IMHO. OTOH those hormone and god only knows what laden Perdue things for instance look like something out of Dr. Frankenstein's laboratory and taste like it as well. You cook those things and the huge pieces give off so much water. In the end you are left with something about 1/2 to 1/3 the size anyway.

At least from what one has seen in local shops and supermarkets it is always the organic, free range or whatever that sells out faster. Meanwhile the yellow colored chicken, farm raised fish, etc... just sit for the most part. Remember walking into Key Food on Second avenue once and seeing a case packed to near overflowing with Salmon steaks (yum) at a very low price. Was wondering what the deal was until another shopper pointed out it was farm raised....

I agree. I don't do farm raised anything when it comes to seafood. That too I feel has a noticeable difference in taste when it comes from the "farm" and "wild".
