;0 just "unite" somewhere else. Bleah!
I ate ONE...one time...just to say that I did. Could'nt handle a "set" of them!!;T
I was served a plateful once...I didn't know what they were. I took a mouthful and started chewing and the guys I was with were surpressing their laughter. You know, little nose laughs.
So I finally said, with my mouth full,"Wha-? This is good".
Finally, one of them told me what they were, and at that point I let the "oyster" fall from my mouth and onto the plate.
I drank a lot of beer that night afterwards.
Most folks just don't seem to have a taste for testicles no more!
A buddy of mine owns the Sportsman's Bar in Clitherall, Minnesota.
I told him to rename it Clitherall Liquors, but, hey, this is a family forum... I digress..
Every year, the Saturday after Thanksgiving, he has The Clitherall Testicle Festival. He and the other farmers in the area all save their calf's nuts all year long for this event. I helped last year, and it was fun. Testicles are a drag to clean: you have to peel them first, and then slice them thinly before you flour and fry them. It's quite time consuming, made better with beer.
He has shirts printed up saying 3rd Annual Testicle Festival and what have you. They usually have a saying like "Have A Ball in Clitherall", or "Go Nuts At The Sportsman's Bar". Bud sponsors this highbrow event and he usually breaks the wheel on the wheelbarrow hauling money to the bank after all is said and done.
Ton's of people for such a teeny town(141?) located in northwestern Minnesota.
Stop by if your in the neighborhood. Great little place.
Man U went and got my hopes up then shot me down. I was hoping for a nice Mountain Oysters thread;g ;z ;z ;z ;z ;z ;z ;z ;z
I like the pork ones the best myself. The beef weren't as good.
Best way to cook them in my opinion is slice about 1/4 inch thick, bread them, deep fry till brown and serve with a red pepper sauce.
Here in the Philippines we have a soup( it has its origins in our chinatown,so its probably of chinese provenance) that's popular among males because of its purported sex-enhancing/aphrodisiac qualities. It's called Soup No. 5 and its main ingredient is chopped bull ***** and testicles with lots of spices thrown in the broth. It tastes great as long as you stop thinking of what its ingredients are. ;f
Haven't tasted your way of preparing it but anything deep fried usually tastes good.
edited to add: sorry about that, didn't know that the bad word filter excluded that part of the anatomy
I wonder where mazto balls come from, now that I think about it.
A local NYS Encon LEO has hosted this 'Testicle Festival' for something like 25 yrs, now. He always gets a big turn-out and the menu represents just about every unfortunate critter that 'had-'em'.
Not my idea of food, tho.;Q
And meat balls.
What does it mean? What does it mean?
and that poor Mr. Benwa...
