I try not to be too judgmental of other cultures. If anything, I feel like much of the food we eat in this country is a little boring, so I often go out of my way just to try something different.
As a child, I remember my grandmother (born in this country, but of German immigrant parents) who would tell my brother and I stories about growing up on a farm in the early 1900s, where they produced their own meat. They ate virtually every part of the animal, including lungs (also called "lights"), kidneys, heart, brains, and so forth. I recall one time I finished mowing her lawn and went to get a glass of lemonade from her fridge. When I opened the door, there was a pickled tongue sitting on a plate. I was a little horrified at the time, but I wouldn't having any problem trying it now.
With that in mind, here is a recipe for Veal Lights (lungs) that sounds quite tasty.
