I have tried tongue -my parents, being European used to cook it and have it on sandwiches -this is one of the very few foods that I did not like the look of however the taste was quite nice, but I would still not cook it myself.
Pigs trotters I will not eat as to me they are dirty having mucked around in dirt all their lives!
I have eaten tongue as Mum used to cook it in Africa where I lived as a child....thought was quite nice but the thought of it now is not palatable to me now....never had pigs trotters but believe the jelly it generates is very tasty!!
I love ox tongue on a sandwich or hot with steamed veg and a piquant sauce. (sounds very Hannibal Lecter).
When I was a child my father and I used to have pigs trotters every saturday afternoon before the football. Loved them and a few years back I had them again at a French restaurant in Richmond, Victoria. The restaurant's supplier must have been very popular because those pig trotters cost me a whole lot more than I'm sure my mother used to fork out. Guess it's a little bit like pork belly and lamb shanks - used to be throw away stuff and now it all costs a fortune.
I'm a vegetarian since childhood, so absolutely not! However, even if I wasn't a vegetarian, I wouldn't be eating offal or tongue, pigs trotters etc. My mother used to eat this type of food & I was always repulsed.
Could you not get them from your Butcher?
I enjoy lamb brains, crumbed & fried.
Also lamb's fry & bacon, with mashed spud, & lots of gravy!
I get both those products from my Butcher, but they've to be pre-ordered! Cheers!
Ive tried trotters, They tasted quite nice. When I was in South America, I couldnt speak spanish but pointed to what I wanted to eat. While eating I got the phrase book out and realised I was eating tongue. The more I nibbled my mind strayed to whos tongue it was. I couldnt finish as my brain went into overdrive.
