Default Anyone cook with organs?

I love going to the Mediterranian markets and buying lamb hearts and cooking them up. When I get the chance I get hearts from the deer my friend catches. I think the heart is a great food to cook and tastes great. I admit that I have probably too much fun pumping the water through it, but hey what can ya do.

I'm not sure if this one counts, but I make a sauce out of the gizzard of ducks too.

I haven't had much experience cooking with any other organs. I've eaten liver, and I think it tastes good, but I can't eat it in large quantities.. especially after knowing the function of it

Does anyone cook with organs themselves?

Chicken-fried gizzards and rice with onion gravy.

I eat a lot of beef tongue, but I don't cook with it.

Not me! I MUCH prefer cooking with pianos....

(sorry I can't resist a good pun).

I do like liver and onions and chopped chicken livers or chicken livers with onions, green peppers and a wine/tomato sauce Italian style...but not too many organ foods in my life due to the high cholesterol...

Um .. no. Never.

We raised our own cows and chickens when I was growing up. We were also very (money) poor. Which meant nothing went to waste. Too many family dinners where it was liver/gizzards/tongue or go hungry.

Once in awhile, I make and eat pig head with brains. To me, it tastes like bacon with mayo. It's really yummy. I like fried intestines too.

Default Cooking with organs

Unfortunately, the pun was taken before I got hers

Just this afternoon I bought some menudo (honeycomb tripe) at the local latin grocery. I plan on parboiling it (to get the last of the digestive juices out) then simmering it slowly with bay leaves for several hours to get it tender. Once it's at that point I can package it in smaller portions and fry it at my leisure for making tacos.

There aren't many forms of "variety meats" that I haven't tried. I've liked all of them except brains.

Just the ones the Good Lord gave me, and I keep them as far away from the flame as possible!!! Seriously, the idea of organ meat makes me gag and I pray the day never dawns that I am SO hungry I have to try them, or that is all there is. When that day comes - I will no longer be earthbound!!! You can have my part and just enjoy them as much as you possibly can. Bleh.....
