On a related topic...

Interesting that no one complains about eating lamb but does complain about veal? Maybe we need an exposť on the conditions under which lamb is raised to even things out.

Oh, good grief. I know a lot of people who won't eat either! I'm never quite sure ... once you've decided to be an omnivore, well.... I've seen vegans wearing leather shoes and anti-fur-people wearing leather jackets. I actually (my husband and I are both omnivores) had to instruct an acquaintance about what she isn't supposed to eat as a vegan. At least I know what is in my Worcestershire sauce! I really don't have a problem with food preferences and dietary restrictions, as long as people don't give me grief. In other words, do not wear leather and tell me I'm evil for liking a steak!

In other words, I agree with you. Is eating a baby lamb any worse than eating a baby cow or, for that matter, an egg?

Had mutton once. Mutton=blech. Too strong flavored for me.

Now, tiny lamb chops and veal parm, muy bueno!

I love lamb chops. As far as I remember, I've never eaten any mutton. I just want to try it.

I love trying new things. Especially foods. I think it was Nikki that said "Tim, you're like Mikey on that TV commercial. You'll try anything!" She's right to an extent.

I'll try almost anything. I do draw the line on some things. Eating still moving things bothers me on a very primitive level. My mind can want to try it, but my soul says no-way.

Ha! I'll find somewhere that has a mutton roast I can try!

Heeere little sheepy.....come here to me.....hehe, that's a good little sheepy....BAP! POW! Into the pot!

i've had mutton in an indian take out place here in the city. loved every bite. the strong flavour goes well in thick, spicy indian sauces like rogan josh.

oddly enough, the guy behind the counter said it was listed on the menu as goat, but it was really mutton. for some reason, people don't mind the idea of eating a goat, but they dislike sheep.

Actually, in some parts of the world, goat is referred to as mutton.

When we had lamb when I was a child, my Dad would come to the supper table and say, (every time), "Ram, Lamb, Sheep or Mutton, I love them all, out of the stall, and when on my plate, I'll never be late!"

As kids, we'd always laugh when he said it!
