    Somehow I don't think I'll be seeing too many replies.

    I'd try them, but I can't see myself getting excited about wolfing down a big plate full!

    If they taste like anything else, I'd rather go with that instead, and I love stuff like tripe and sweetbreads...

    They'd have to be damn good, and I don't see why they would be...

    I put on a wild game feed several years ago. A friend of mine brought over a bucket full(1/2 gallon) of 'em from pigs he had cut that morning. We deep fried them. I ate ONE, just to say I did. They just don't ring my bell.

    They taste like chicken....


    A friend of mine's Dad was a large animal vet and he saved all the "fruits" of his work and threw a party every spring...they were tasty...although I had to get over the initial sympathetic pang!

    You might be interested in this:
    The testicle festival is held every September at the Rock Creek Lodge in Clinton MT (406) 825 4868. Many, many oysters are eaten that weekend.

    IMHO, they are quite tasty

    I don't love them, but they aren't bad either. Doesn't really bother me. Pork ones are the best.

    I've had mountain oysters a few times and they just didn't do much for me. There isn't much of a taste or a texture, rather bland. This is probably a dish that one eats just to claim to do so.
