Definitely off the bucket list of things to try--no sheeps' lungs.

My birthday is on the 25th of Jan (Burns Night) so I eat a bit of haggis and have a shot of whisky.
The haggis has most of the lambs internal organs packed into its stomach.

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.

Try Menudo. It's delicious! Just don't think about too much about what you're eating.

What must people from other cultures think of cheese, when they hear a description?

Take some milk and make it curdle by adding rennet*, drain it, squish the liquid out, let it sit in the cellar for days, months, or years. Sometimes mould is grown inside or on the outside of this mass of curdled milk.


*traditional method of making rennet according to Wikipedia:"Dried and cleaned stomachs of young calves are sliced into small pieces and then put into saltwater or whey, together with some vinegar or wine to lower the pH of the solution. After some time (overnight or several days), the solution is filtered. The crude rennet that remains in the filtered solution can then be used to coagulate milk. About 1 gram of this solution can normally coagulate 2 to 4 liters of milk."
