    Description

    Not only are drumsticks affordable and easy to cook, they provide a good source of iron. And, did you know, if you pair an iron-rich food with vitamin C, such as lemon, your body will absorb more iron? To top it off, try making our Roasted Garlic Yogurt Everything Sauce for dipping and dunking.
