Just been tucking into an ox tongue sandwich [it speaks for itself] much to the disgust of my 25 year old son---how can i eat animals bits [think he means offal]

Got to thinking of stuff we ate before nanny state deemed them naughty.

Tripe, brawn, faggots for example---skate knobs and cods heads are others.

Oh how we would look forward to the seasons first lambs testicles! yum

Bacon with rind and bristles on it, pork chops with a piece of kidney still attached.

Anyone else still hanker for nanny;s forbidden foods?

Yes Mollag I remember well the days we used to have a half pigs head roasted and the brains made into some sort of sauce by my mum, and Honeycomb Tripe cut into strips, a sprinkle of salt and vinegar poured over.
Another thing she used to do was buy a lump of Gammon, make some dough and roll it out then wrap the Gammon in it and roast it. You usually had to break it open with a hammer or something cos it was like a lump of rock........but when the meat was taken out it was just so juicy and tender scrumptiouse.

mollag,

Being American, I have no idea what some of those dishes are, but I'm of the belief that a club of some sort should be created for people like us. (O.O.F. - Organization of Organ Feasters)

I'm a big fan of kidneys & hearts seasoned and grilled. I can hear all the mouths drooling from here.

My motto - If I'm hungry enough and can outrun it, I'll eat it!

I have a picture of a menu board outside a place in Didim: says Tripe Soup and another item is Thicker Tripe Soup. Maisie

American eh! theres not much wasted in the USA :blowkiss:

Well i will try a definition of ould style food but expect disputes cos stuff is regional

Tripe is boiled cows stomach
Faggots are made from pigs Liver, lungs and heart, minced, seasoned and formed into meatballs with a rich gravy
Brawn is the remnants of a pigs head boiled with pigs feet, flaked and set in natural gelatine.
Skate nobs---the cheeks of a skate or ray

Cods heads---boiled, stripped of meat and made into fish cakes

Lambs fries --- testicles

Lambs sweetbreads------glands from the lambs neck.

Haggis---like faggots but sheepses bitses, mixed with oatmeal, stuffed into a sheepses stomach and boiled.

Any more guys?

I would consider it an honour to be considered for membership of O.O.F

And the added bonus of some little chalky messages left by the dogs!


Spotted a recipe from Hugh Fearnly- Urinalstal for alcoholic [4%] dandelion and burdock fizzy pop, i reckon we can turbo that up as few %

Wow nostalgic and pissed, who said men cant multitask?

My hubby loves all of the things you're mentioned Mollag, Tripe Soup he always has to have when we're in Turkey. He and (our Dog Monty also loves) often have Honeycombe tripe. Also Cow Heel, Lambs fries etc, but I cannot get to liking these, and I have tried as I am quite adventurous when eating and will try, maybe only the once though. It's on his list to have the sheeps head soup next time we go out to Turkey. We also love Oysters, IMHO, the Scots Oysters are the best.
