Abstract

Because of its tenderness, succulence and delicate flavour, the flesh of the capon has long been held in high regard by epicures in many lands. Over three centuries have passed since Shakespeare wrote of the portly justice whose "fair round belly" was "with fat capon lined," but throughout the years capons have usually commanded high prices from discriminating consumers of table poultry.
