I have not seen a beef heart or a tongue in the market for years!

I would stuff the heart and slow roast it in the ovens similar to a pot roast.

Pickle the tongue, peel it, press it, and slice it paper thin for some great sandwiches.

I just cooked my first calf tongue this weekend. Nothing complicated, just poached in water, with carrots, leeks, celery, onion and a few whole cloves (toasted first). Made delicious lunch sandwiches.

The last beef heart I cooked was done in the crockpot with the usual vegetables, plus a bottle of oxtail sauce, beer, some Worcestershire sauce and some beef kidney. The whole lot went into a pie once cooked. A great success.

I will eat the liver, but the gizzards go to the doggie. That's his treat. If someone cooked the heart or tongue for me I would try it.

Chicken livers are very nice when they are coated and fried. But the gizzards (I had to look that word up!) are for the dog and the cats. Uckkkkkkkk!

We buy or cook the roasted chickens and cook those down to make a stock, then we freeze it.

Beef cheekmeat is very good for making beef stock. Sometimes it is hard to find. It is very tender and has very much flavor.

Your friend,
~Cat

My family is split. I absolutely would rather die than eat or even cook chicken livers. The smell is so awful. My hubby likes them. I will only cook gizzards as that is what I love. White meat chicken is mostly served to our cat clowder. We prefer dark meat; love duck!!

Clowder: a group of cats

This is a very interesting word! I did not know of this word. Thank you!

Your friend,

PS. I am sorry for this is off the topic, but it is very exciting for me to learn a new word.

Cat, I have lived in US and spoke English language all my life, and I, too, have learned the new word, "clowder." At first glance I thought it said "cat chowder." Not something I would eat! I would rather eat chicken gizzard!

LOL! "Kitten Teriyaki" is my threat to the cats when they are misbehaving.

Latté loves chicken gizzards and hearts as much as I do, it's a game to see who gets the most when I cook them up.

Collective nous are fun. Here is a partial list: List of collective nouns - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

They left out, among others, two of my favourites:

a bother of boys
a giggle of girls
