Poultry hearts

Did this portion of info wake me up. It is just that the idea of pigeon, pig or lamb sound strange to me. I guess if my family never ate it have no idea what it taste like. Just knowing what it is does affect me about eating it. I seem to learn something new everyday and thankful for it.
IT'S THE SEASON OF HEARTS!

"Braise them," says Paul Canales, chef at Oliveto in Oakland, California. "Take some poultry hearts chicken, pigeon, duck and brown them, then cook them up with a little mirepoix and rosemary, and deglaze with red wine." (Mirepoix, not that you don't know, is a mixture of onions, carrots and celery cut up into little cubes). Then you chop it all up and "swirl it into a risotto," he says. If you've got a pig or lamb's heart, slice it very thin, and grill it quickly. "A salsa verde goes nicely," says Canales.

Hey

middie, it bothered you too? Got your attention, I'm sure. Well, if I prepare this I will not invite you. Guess you feel the same way I do. You want to be familiar with what you eat. National Geographic is a program that shocks me too. These people that eat different insects, don't you wonder how long they live? then they put chocolate on top of them.

I love beef hart stew, haven't made in years. Last time I did, my wife ate it for three days and also loved it, well I had to go and spoil everything for her. I told her what it was, phew... did I get over the head for it. But darn it was just so good, she still talks about how good it was, but will not eat it again.

I have 'heart' all the time. Just fry them like you would do with liver(with onions) and boy they are great. I love every heart especially chicken hearts. I had them for lunch yesterday.Happy Valentine

Don't understand why people are all fussy about heart. I can maybe see why people are a bit picky about kidney/liver but heart? It's just another piece of meat.

Heart is so flavoursome and when cooked right soo tender. And cheap too!

when the big one comes, and acme or super-fresh is no longer viable, we will ALL learn to eat the foods of our fathers, or we will curl up, whimper, wither and ........DIE!
