My mother frequently boiled beef tongue when we weren't paying attention (were outside for the day, away from the smell). It tastes just fine- good actually- but it's disconcerting to catch sight of taste buds on the "roast beef" in your sandwich, especially if it's been spotted and pointed out by your buddies at lunch.
It's lime the battles between sperm whales and giant squid half a mile below the surface of the ocean. Only it happens in the palm I your hand.- thndr

Dude...stop talking dirty to me...
In the old country it is grey in colour and the aspic is fresh because the head cheese is made with vinegar.

Same here. I grew up with it, along with plenty of other disgusting food items brought over from the old country. Coagulated pig blood stuffed into pig intestine (i.e., blood sausage) was another special treat I really don't miss all that much.

My peasant eastern european heritage gave me pickled pigs feet and duck blood soup every few years. Just gross. My dad ate smoked chubs, which I think is a Wisco thing. Tried them much later in life. Meh, just oily and smokey.

My old man still raises and slaughters his own animals, and he still enjoys eating all the nasty bits. In addition to feasting on the heart, liver, kidney, and tongue, he's a big fan of sweetbreads (pancreas), tripe (stomach lining), and fried brains with eggs. I've never acquired a taste for any of it.

Camembert comes wrapped in the thinnest skin of poplar . Groves of poplar are grown and harvested in 7 and 14 year cycles all over Normandy with the sole purpose of making cheese containers.

A good dordogne red with apples nuts and Camembert is nothing short of heavenly.

Any chance he's from Indiana or near by? I thought only we Hoosiers ate that.

Many of these "delicacies" were born out of starvation by creative folk experiencing abject poverty no?
