Sometimes you feel like a nut---

OMG, just watched the Travel channel go to the Testicle Festival. Rocky Mountain Oysters is the main dish. Has anyone gone to it? If so, did you partake? If you did, did you like it? (Bang, serious question here,lol)

I have had them. My buddy from vietnam made them. They are very good.

Rocky Mountain Oysters (Montana Tendergroin)

2 pounds bull testicles (lamb/sheep, calf or turkey testicles can also be used)
1 cup flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
1 cup red wine
salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste
Louisiana Hot Sauce
hog lard (cooking oil can be substituted)

Split the tough skin-like muscle that surrounds each "oyster." (use a sharp knife) You can also remove the skin easily if the "oysters" are frozen and then peeled while thawing. Set into a pan with enough salt water to cover them for one hour to remove some of the blood and drain.
Transfer to large pot. Add enough water to float "oysters" and a generous tablespoon of vinegar. Parboil, drain and rinse. Let cool and slice each "oyster" into 1/4 inch thick ovals. Sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides of sliced "oyster" to taste.

Mix flour, cornmeal and some garlic powder to taste in a bowl. Roll each slice into this dry mixture. Dip into milk. Dip into dry mixture. Dip into wine quickly (repeat the procedure for a thicker crust).
Place into hot cooking oil.

Add Louisiana Hot Sauce to cooking oil (it'll sizzle some, so be careful!). Cook until golden brown or tender, and remove with a strainer (the longer they cook, the tougher they get).


Butterflied Turkey Nuts

3 pounds of fresh turkey nuts
1 pound of flour
Salt & Pepper

Heat fryer to 350-degrees.
Rinse nuts under cold running water and pat them dry with a paper towel. Make a lengthwise slit in your nuts, almost cutting in half but not going all the way through (butterfly). Dredge in the seasoned flour and fry immediately. Have a platter with a towel to drain your nuts on. Serve your nuts with your favorite sauce.
You are not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on.

Hey Elv, have a problem with this topic???? Why are you blue, sad or alarmed? I certainly would be if someone put them in front of me. I have never had them and do not plan to, UGH. H owever, those who have eaten them say they are OK. They say slaughter houses use all parts of the animal.

Yes, slaughterhouses use all parts of the animal. Where do you think sausages and hotdogs come from?
