For everyone who din't know how to cook them, here's a fun little site that has some ideas.
(Hey, it isn't as nasty as the site with the He11 froze over sign.) They really do have recipes for Rocy Mountain Oysters and Sheep Fries. (It seems to make Punchy squirm a little. So it's an all rite site.)

Believe it or not, we actually do eat these things out here in farm country. Every once in a while if you're lucky you can find a small country diner in bu-foo nowhere that has them when they're in season. Have a good night.

I've heard about these recipes before, bet you can cook them real good. I'm being serious now.

Good Night to you too Baby Duck

I like my oysters fried but my real preference is raw, just plain and no crackers. GREAT FLAVOR

It's a custom here to eat them raw and also in Paellas, the spanish seafood stew rice.

I love THOSE kind of oysters raw if I have plenty of coctail sauce with horseradish in it. In fact, I have never tried any kind of seafood that I didn't like. Think I could be shipwrecked on an island and handle the menu just fine. :)

Warm Regards Maggie

LH, I never had calf oysters with crackers but I guess I could try it. Maybe throw some in the food processor and make a spread out of it? I don't know about eatin them things raw. There's something about eating something that's still bleeding that's too hard for me, they're awful tough raw.

Whoa! Now I really love regular oysters any way you cook know the kind that come out of the water? sometimes they have a pearl in 'em? But now this recipe site is a whole 'nother story here. I would like to MAYBE try some sometime, but NOT raw! And Baby Duck, I think what made Punchy squirm was the preparation part, the part where they said to take a knife and....

I don't think he's talking about Mountain Oysters. I think he's talking about what I've heard yuppies call shooters on a half shell. You can't eat sheep or calf fries raw, they'd be too tough. When you butcher your own you always have things in the freezer that you can't find at the grocers. They're pretty easy to get from any farm that commercially raises pigs or sheep or cows. Just find out when the farmer plans on cutting the animals and ask him if you can try one or two. Sounds nasty but they're really good. If you've never had them before, then try the pork first. Lamb is more tender but sheep is an aquired taste, and they have to come from a young animal. (And I think you're right about the knife part and Punchy. Gave him the hebe-jebees.)

Ok, we know a guy who raises pigs and can probably get some from him. I've always heard that when you go hunting and get a male animal, like a wild hog or deer, that you're supposed to get rid of all the male glands and stuff real quick so it doesn't ruin the meat. I guess it is not the same thing with farm raised critters?

When you get them from farm raised animals, they normally come from very young animals. You don't want any that come from sexually mature animals, they taste nasty. Game animals are sexually mature adults. You aren't allowed to hunt baby animals. That's the difference.

Ahhh, ok, once again I have learned something on here! I love this place! Thank you.
And yes, I was raised in the city and that's why I don't know these things, but I am trying to learn and nobody could pay me to move back to a city ever again. I get antsy just visiting relatives in the city now.
Good night all...:)
