For years now I've known of "Rocky Mountain Oysters," which are the testicles of a pig, bull, or other farm animal fry cooked in a pan and eaten by people.
Over the years I've run into a number of people who claim to have eaten them, smacked their lips and grinned (an evil grin, I might add) and commented on how good they were. I always wondered if they were lying.
Yesterday my wife and I were at the "Butcher Block," our towns most excellent resource for meat...and damned if I didn't see frozen pigs testicles.
I bought them.
The butcher acted as if I was demented.
In looking for a recipe I came across several sites I thought I'd share. They're rather...interesting.
I've always been one of those people who prides himself on eating just about anything. Rattlesnake, octopus, squid, pig intestines, tripe, liver, heart, sweetbreads, kidneys...but never this.
When I cook them up, I'll let you know how it goes.
WARNING, whatever you do dont _DON'T_ eat them fresh. A friend of mine told me once that if I tried them I abosolutely HAD to try them fresh. I tell you what, I took one bite and that bull drug me through three fences and a pasture before I could let go. So don't eat them fresh ;-)
