Welcome to DC!!

There is an offal thread in the forum which may provide that instanteous bit of info. I only recall my mum loading the tongues into a ceramic pudding basin with a saucer on top weighted down to get them pressed. There was obviously some liquid in there as they came out with jelly but I couldn't tell you what was in there. Love tongues!!

Hi and welcome to DC Fran. I remember going to someones house one time and she served sliced tongue sandwiches. I ate it to be polite, but I had a hard time getting it down. I think it was just the idea of what it was.

Welcome and condolences, Fran. I remember the time newlywed DH made onion pie for the first time, drove me and the cat right out of the apartment. Be glad.....if he's at least willing to cook offal (similar to awful) then he might learn to help you out with other dishes...be kind, gentle, and.......oh, heck, I can't really say what I want to..will you really eat this stuff?
