Fried. With onions. Slathered in vinegar.


Hard to find these days but available in the local Polski Sklep. Called "slaki", I think.

A friend of my Grandad's likes it raw.
I'd rather eat my own foot.

I've never tried nibbling Sarah's toes, there is more of an appeal to it when described thus.
I have had tripe when I was a student, and experimenting. As I recall it tasted of whatever you cooked it with. The major advantage was that it was cheap. I never needed to bother again afterwards. Black pudding was much better.

Never did me any harm, nor did brisket, mutton , lever or ox hearts. Ox hearts are absolutely wonderful in stews etc they soak up the juices. On reflection they are probably low fat and high protein, not just cheap,.. which is why I was served it regularly as a child.

Suet pudding (yeah) ... can we still get it? Tapioca (yak), semalina (double yak).

You make suet pudding !
04/06/2012 at 21:24

Oooh you are offal ... but I like you

Suet pudding was part of my youth. I love dumplings in my stew. Easy just by suet, bake for a bit and chuck em in.

Nice one Muttley, I guess admitting that gives away what a pair of dinosaurs we are. I used to like Harry Worth more than... (I'm so old I can't even remember his name... he wasn't a Mike Yarwood character... aghh)

Not quite the same I know - but, my mother used to make wonderful kidney soup. I was completely oblivious to what it was till I took my boyfriend home for Christmas Dinner - the look on his face when she rolled out a big pot of kidney soup was priceless.  'piss-filter soup?' he said.. I haven't had it since and I don't think my mother has either.

AH the coming of the next generation! GymAddict, you and I had not even thought about it in those terms! However I think now modern science would tell us nothing to worry about, as with ox hearts, probably quite good... will the genmeration below the next one, readopt the waste not want not approach to food?

I do hope so.

I put my Mum off of steak and kidney pie by calling it 'lean muscle mass and urine filter pie' 

I quite like liver. And kidney isn't bad - makes a gravy nice and rich. 

I've never eaten heart, or tongue, or tripe. Or brawn *shudder*

Eeeew, especially the idea of eating tongue.  I don't know why that seems like the yuckiest of the three, but I suppose it's the thought of what my dinner might have chewed before I chewed it. 

Toast, anyone?

Mmm brawn is scrummy
