Gotta eat a steak and kidney pie! :s

As a squeamish guy who is already on the verge of vegetarianism for ethical reasons, the prospect of eating a pie with kidney is unappealing and threatens to push me over the edge! I literally inherited a Fray Bentos tinned pie with steak and kidney from my recently deceased step grandmother's kitchen cupboard and my mum won't touch anything like kidney. I can't waste it so I must begin a journey of mental and physical preparation to ingest this offal pie. I was hoping for words of advice, encouragement or even caution :-P

Why don't you give it away to someone hungry enough to eat it?

+1. Give it to a food pantry or whatever the equivalent UK organization is.

+2. There must be someone, or some facility nearby, that would be happy to have it. Personally, I wouldn't force myself to eat something that I dislike.

Thanks. There is even a collection at my local supermarket for just this sort of thing. I don't know why it didn't occur to me!

If you must eat it, lots of HP Sauce would help.
