question Whats the difference between "die Vene", "die Atern", and "die Adern" ? I want to say "the veins", like, the tubes carrying the blood through the body.

Also, is there a verb in German to say "to remove the veins", for food preparation context (eg. people remove veins from chickens before you eat them)

Thanks !

Arterien sind definiert als vom Herzen kommend, Venen als zum Herzen führend. Adern ist für beides der Sammelbegriff.
