About tongue..... warning, may be inappropriate for some palates

Please refrain from naughty thoughts @Killerbunny

Excerpt from "Joy of Cooking" 1975 edition

ABOUT TONGUE
Lucky indeed is the cook with the gift of tongues !
******************************************************************************************

I have been recipient of a happy beef tongue, from the lands of @windwalkingwolf
which makes me a very lucky cook indeed, so I thought I would do it justice by surrounding it by homegrown potatoes and Brussels sprouts, and topped with horseradish sauce.
It was absolutely delicious, so Thank you Jan and Gill ! :bow:

Yumm! That looks delicious. You have to love those older editions of the Joy of Cooking for recipes of more obscure ingredients!

I used to love jellied tongue in the UK but have never got around to doing it myself. Not sure how it was done.

Unless I am mistaken, you have to start with a smoked tongue.
Presumably comes from cows who were heavy smokers.
Sorry, couldn't resist :oops:

That looks yummy! I have had tongue before, many moons ago; it was good.

One of the choice parts of the animal. Boil it. Let it cool. Peel it. Then slice it. A little salt and a honey mustard, my mothers home made bread, and it is absolutely wonderful. One of the absolute best sandwich meats there could be. Bee, deer, moose, elk, goat whatever. Tasty and mostly tender. I am now drooling like Pavlov's dogs.

Taco Tony's a mexican restaurant in Leamington does Vaca del Lengua tocos that are just wonderful. if you ever get that way.

Having been slobbered on by what's on your plate, I'm afraid I'll have to take a pass, but it looks and sounds delicious :) I'm very happy to see them put to good use!

Not ever having been close enough to the beast to examine the said part while functional, my enjoyment was complete, Thank you :)
