Black Bat Wings

Black Bat WingsI consider myself to be pretty immune to gross or scary food by now - I even let my husband cook occasionally! But these wings came out so well they even took me for a turn or two! We had thought the final result of this recipe would be a dark wing, but the last few minutes at a higher temperature resulted in a shiny ebony glaze that defies description - although you can get a hint of it in the photos. These wings look like they have been dipped in vampire blood and our testers went wild over the appearance. That is, until they tried them and then they were too busy eating the surprisingly tasty wings to comment about anything. Thus was a surefire "hit" born. By parcooking the wings and poking them liberally before basting with the sauce, the interior flesh of the wings are also dyed an eerie black color. If you cannot find black paste food coloring, just add a mixture of gel or liquid food colorings in red, blue, and green until a dark sauce is formed. These are excellent with our Real Mold Dip.

4 pounds chicken wings
2 cups dark soy sauce
2 cups dark brown sugar
Black pepper
Black paste food coloring
Blue paste food coloring
Green paste food coloring

Black Bat WingsPreheat the oven to 350 degrees. Boil the chicken wings for twenty minutes in a large pot. While the wings are cooking, prepare the sauce. Whisk together the soy sauce, brown sugar, salt, and pepper in a large roasting pan. Place the pan in the oven and bake for five minutes or until the brown sugar dissolves. Whisk until the sauce is smooth. Add enough black, blue, and green food colorings to the sauce to make a dark black sauce. Place the pan in the oven and bake for another 5 minutes, stirring once. Drain the wings well and add them to the sauce and toss to coat evenly, poking each wing liberally with a fork. Bake for 20 minutes, then increase the temperature to 450 degrees. Toss the wings in the sauce again to coat evenly. Bake until the sauce is very thick and glossy, flipping the wings over frequently, about another 10 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature.
