Often drumsticks are plentiful on Amish farms. especially if they are raising a lot of chickens for meat. Kids and parents alike will fight for the last drumstick. You can probably buy a bag of frozen drumsticks and use this same recipe, which is a wonderful blend of spices and the tangy sweetness of honey and mustard.
