Looking for chicken fat in the South Bay (honest!)

Judith Hurley | Mar 22, 2003 07:36 PM

It's my turn to make the matzoh balls. Usually I make them with canola oil, but I'd like to make them with schmaltz, or at least half schmaltz.

I rendered the fat from two chickens this morning, but it'll take me a while to accumulate enough if I take this bird by bird. Does anyone know a place to buy chicken fat in the south bay or on the peninsula? Is there an actual live poultry market anywhere (I'm giving away my age here)?
