When I took my wife to be to meet my pop quiz mate, Joe, who was a bit rough, she was disgusted by how his house smelt and the 3 dogs there too. He made us both a tea so she poured hers in a plant. His wife came and said "Oh Nita you like Joe's tea, no-one else does, make her another Joe" :yikes: :leer: When we left I couldn't stop laughing.

Mixed bag on the offal front for me.

Love a bit of liver. Usually go with liver, bacon and onion gravy either with chips or mash. A bit of brown sauce, Worcester or both on it.

A pre-made steak and kidney pie is something I appreciate, although the only time I ever bought kidneys on their own was a disaster. Stunk of piss when cooking them and tasted of it too. I remember soaking them in milk first which I think is supposed to stop that happening. They lied.

Beef's heart I only had once and remember really liking it. Think it was in a stew, might have to get some again one day.

Remember my parents used to get tongue in for sandwiches from the deli counter when I was a kid. I remember quite liking it although it seems a bit expensive to me these days. Just looking now, works out at £16/kg for pre-packaged and £19 on the counter at Tesco. Other supermarkets are available. I don't usually pay that for meat outside of special occasions. Didn't it used to be really cheap because people wouldn't eat it? Same with ox tail, that seems pricey to me these days as well.

Tripe - had once, not sure I made it with the best recipe. Didn't like it, probably wouldn't try it again.

Yes, tongue is expensive and an unhealthy meat due to it's very high salt content. Not sure if it's naturally salty or they add it. Tasty though. Pork tongue's nicer than ox but you rarely see it. Ox is more commonly sold in supermarkets. You can buy a big whole tongue and roast or boil it. Wife used to do that for her rich employers and it was ordered from Harrod's. Try not to give dog it as it's so salty.
