    Ew. There is a very popular German deli around here and they serve many dishes with tongue and other weird stuff. They make corned beef and cabbage all year round though, so I just order it and hope and pray that there is no tongue nearby. I'd make it myself but my son won't eat it and it's just easier to buy it from them. Who the hell decided to cook a tongue??? And liver or kidneys???? Gag so hard.

    Speaking of organs...There is an Oriental Market in South Philly that sells organs. The first time I ever felt like I was going to faint was in that isle. They had pig uterus, containers of pig blood, cow snouts with hair on them, kidneys, and a bunch of other stuff that I’m glad I forgot about. I was about to faint, and I told the person I was with that we have to leave this isle immediately.

    I love tongue especially in a nice sandwich.
    I remember my mum buying whole ones at Xmas to cook & press. Good times.
    During WWII my Oma fed her family on offal (not rationed) so they ate well.

    At least nobody's mentioned kale or cilantro yet.

    I like lengua burritos, but I usually just go for boring steak or chicken or maybe pork. (Beef lengua tastes like beef.) I've never really had any desire to eat a big ol' piece of tongue off my plate, and especially not cocooned in aspic.

    There really is an entire culinary movement around eating "nose to tail" so that you're not wasting any part of the animal, just like our ancestors would have done. I appreciate the concept very much, even if I don't always partake in it.

    When I was in grade school, there was a girl in my class who ate tongue and BRAIN sandwiches. Every day, her lunch was like a new way to shock and awe the 2nd grade class with grossness. I still can't bring myself to try brain.

    There is a Vietnamese shop near me that has really awesome bahn bao, and they sell pork uterine and I thought...Like I said, I appreciate the whole nose to tail concept of cuisine, but what do you do with that? I don't even think it was remarkably cheap or anything.

    I've talked about this before, but I almost have a phobia (not an exaggeration) about headcheese (offal) and it's so gross to me. I don't even like to be in the same room with it, and I'm a fairly adventurous eater, and I just can't wrap my brain around it. I mean, I will eat tripe, tongue, liver, etc., just not all set together in a jelly-like substance. But I'm not starving in WWII and I'm sure if I were, I'd change my tune...

    “Headcheese”!!! I’d never heard of that before I came here.
    Cant understand what’s wrong with you? Brawn is yummy!!!


    And this one appears to be all sausaged into a stomachs lining



    While I was looking for this picture I found they do tongue is aspic too - I’ve never had it like this? We usually have it pressed.

    I love both!

    I used to hate cilantro, and it would make my nose tingle. I would always request extra cilantro at the Mexican Resturant. I can eat a huge bag of kale in 2 days. I could eat it in one day, but then I won’t have anything for the following day. Kale and cilantro forever!!!!

    I cannot remember what made me want to try it, or when I could deal with it. I’m used to work at a grocery store as a teen, and would hate when people came through my lane with it. Maybe it’s because a little bit was on a taco that I had. I think the smell of it was stronger back then, or perhaps it’s just because it doesn’t bother me anymore.
