How big are 'mountain oysters'? Are they 'oysters' in the traditional sense?.. or some clever nickname for something else?

..On my trip to New Orleans alone, I remember going up and down Bourbon Street and eating oysters right on the bar counter in some places! I have no idea what type of oysters they were, but I loved them all!!

SM,

Mountain oysters are cojones -- from whatever animal suits your fancy. Have you never heard of those Cuban treats like arroz con cojones or cojones en escabeche? -- Miami specialties!!!

I'll have to rephrase what I said earlier...I'll try anything once while blindfolded!
Yes, in sour-hot soup. Typically the entire fish head (I believe that that is from a Red Snapper) is halved lengthwise and boiled with vegetables, Daikon radish, taro root, Bilimbi fruit, onions, and long chili peppers(1 or 2). Green tamarind fruits or tamarind tips, or half ripe guavas may be substituted for Bilimbi fruits. With the absence of any of those sour fruits, when we first came to this country, we were using lemon juice in their stead. However, while it satisfied the requirement for the sourness, it also has some sweetness that was somewhat awkward at first. Also, because of oil from the lemon rind, it left a little bit of an after taste. When cooked, the whole thing doesn't really look too bad.

When I was growing up, my Dad and I were the only ones that actually ate the fish eyes (there were 8 of us siblings).

By the way, it really really tastes great!

Rocky Mountain Oysters are common in Texas- although I've never had them. Most women won't. Common here are goat, cow and horse. Yup. Horse. When I had my friends stud colt gelded (she was too squeamish), the Vet took $5 off the bill because he would sell them to a restaurant on the south side of San Antonio. Supposed to be like oysters- gives "vitality."

As for the cute stove picture, I think it's adorable.

Yes, it's very cute & funny, but hopefully some crackhead out there doesn't take it serious!

A supermarket in Barcelona Spain had this display.. Chicken anyone?



Sbl, have you ever been to Europe? They don't seem to share in our concerns about proper sanitation. We rarely used any drinking glasses since they were always dirty!
