Edible Udder

I like to think I’m open to trying everything once, but then I come across no thank you never and I can’t sorry. There are just some things that I never want making its way into my mouth. Like today, at our weekly farmers market trip a few towns over, I came across this display at one of the butcher stands…

FarmersMarket

Gekookte Uier is Cooked Cow Udder. Yes, as in the cow’s tit, milk-producing organ is going for €7.60/kg or about $10.00/lb here. I’ve ordered sweetbreads and enjoyed them dining out, and I’ve eaten cow liver and tongue and intestines too, but udder? No.

I didn’t even know udder was edible. Edible udder. Now I’ll never forget. Apparently you get it sliced for use as cold cuts, and it has a very fatty but meaty taste and texture of hard butter.

If anyone’s ever tried this delicacy please do let me know.

Gerookte Paardenfilet is Smoked Horsefilet, also sliced for sandwiches and significantly pricier at €19.90/kg or about $26.00/lb. My husband Davy says he’s had it before and liked it. He told me I should try it, that it had the saltiness and texture of serrano ham but stronger. He said horse has a very distinct taste that is hard to explain and that I should try it. So I told him I would do anything for love but I won’t do that. I won’t do that.

I don’t need to know what distinct taste horse meat has because I think semen has a distinct taste as well and I wouldn’t urge people to go trying it for 26 bucks a pound. No.

Always dishing,

Jun

  1. You are a good wife to try new things that your dear hubby has eaten. But yeah even I would draw the line at horse meat and cow udder…. (Bob, I now forgive you for letting me eat fish eyes and when you told me they were small gelatin meatballs..)

    When I first glanced at the topic I thought it was Edible Undies and I wondered when you became a prude. I should have known better.

    But cow tit? I agree. No thanks. For me, I’ll pass on the tongue and the stomach too. I know menudo is supposed to be a great hangover cure but in all my years of hangovers I never got near a bowl and now that my drinking days are in the past I can definitely say I never will. The same can be said for squirrel brains, calf fries ( aka mountain oysters or what they really are, calf testicles ), and vaginas.

    But I would like to try horse meat. I’m not sure why there is such a stigma on it. It’s definitely a very lean meat and I imagine it to be much like emu.

    I would like to place an order for a case of sperm. Does it cum in a variety pack? Flavors vary depending on the donor’s diet. It probably varies by nationality too. I want some extra Belgian… for my waffles. We all know variety is the spice of life.

    Quite a picture or should I say pictures you’ve drawn Jun. My imagination went into overdrive and at each imagining I threw up in my mouth a little. I must think of this as summer rapidly approaches. Easy dieting 😉
