Brain is much tastier, and the texture much finer.

No shit? Tell me, how does the smooth, bloody liver dripping blood all over the place look any better? :?

Yea yea, I know, it's the wrinkles, eh? You should still try it, the texture is very smooth and soft.

Which reminds me, anyone ever eaten a liver which is still a bit "runny"? I.e, soft and half-raw on the inside? Mmmm. :)
But if it's too runny it's a bit disgusting.

haha.. the calf liver doesn't look disgusting because it's been de-veined and sliced. Chicken liver just looks like blobs, plus if it's breaded and fried it looks completely normal. Brains.. don't even look like meat.

Pffft, Americans and their commercialized foods.

Haven't you ever eaten something that isn't pre-sliced/processed?

Shouldn't we open a food thread already? We've been hijacking this one to the moon already.

And if already off topic, man, does Westros have some funny threads. :lol:

I think this one went off topic from the start, plus there's another thread for smilies.

You know I eat meat that hasn't been preprocessed, just not liver! Actually have the liver from the last cow we butchered in the freezer.. probably end up throwing it out eventually.

The waste... :( Give it to your dogs.

Or how hard can it be to just roast it a bit?

Well.. I actually don't have any idea what to do with an entire liver. I may try to cook it, but I"m not making any promises. :P

Calf's liver is about it for liver, for me, but it has to be done right. And I have not even touched a brain since leaving the South, except for one pig brain sandwich I had somewhere in the midwest on one of my trips through. Kansas or Missouri or someplace. It sucked.

So anyone ever had potted head, or heed as we'd say. Take your heed boil it off for a good time, skim of all of the scummy fleshy goodness that rises to the top. Then pot it and allow to set. YUUUMMMY but I've not seen it in the shops for years, no doubt those E.U. bastards in Brussels band its ass.

Thank God she's suspended, that's enough of her sex life, thanks.

I know prejudice is a terrible thing and I try to be open-minded, but the thought of fat ugly people having sex just makes me feel ill.

Chopped calf's liver in onion gravy is gorgeous. I haven't tried brains, though.

I wonder if potted head is the same as head cheese. Don't think I've had either..

Any scrapple eaters here?

They can go by the same name but they’re not the same thing.

I'll eat just about anything (allow me to add the " :shock: " before one of you chuckle heads do :roll: ). Of course, 'round these parts Menudo is the big thing. Definately an acquired taste, but I love it.

Tripe soup. The second best thing in the world for a hangover! That is why they only sell it on Sunday mornings here in CA. Because its a complete bitch to make, but vitally necessary. Personally I love the stuff, but I much prefer pho with tripe in it. Yummy!

And the boy band took the name.

Pfft. Mole with a jalepeno and chipotle combo mixed in is the best hangover cure there is.
