Guess What This Is


If you can guess what this is you are way ahead of me. When Trent brought this into the kitchen a few weeks back, I had only fragments of visual memory to compare to what I was seeing. I knew it was some kind of organ, the fur looked familiar, but I could not put a name for it together until the smell of the fur gave up the identity of the animal.

Thanks for finding that, Bob. I almost gave up on it.

Where was it, anyway?

Bob
It was on an animal.

LMH said...

I am guessing it's a Rocky Mountain Oyster. Sheep definitely have a smell that would be tell tale.

Jason said...

I was going to guess sheep testicles.

Another vote for sheep testicle here.

Walt said...

It looks like a ferret from that angle. But as your diggin around it's innards, and living as I do in West Virgina, I'll wager I might be able to fetch you up a nice stew recipe.

Iff'n yer need'n one.

I'm guessing it a opossum's stomach. Or an organ a bit south of there.

LMH wins 1st prize. Should I freeze it before shipping?

Scotty said...

That is just too baaaaaaaad!

Crazy Raven Productions said...

Opossom?

ChrisC said...

I would have guessed testicle too. If it's fresh, grill lightly over wood smoke and consume with a spritz of lemon juice. Mmmmm.

But then again, I'm greek, so ymmv.

John said...

So...how was it?

Bob said...

Oh.

I guess I have to keep looking, then.

Maybe I'll just grow a pair. Yeah, I'll just let them grow until the Eagles win the Super Bowl.

I think you may have stumbled onto the next big internet game show: Can you guess what this is?

I'll take offal for 300 points.

Scotty said...

Jon, that's an offal good idea!

Larbo said...

LMH, is that a "tell tale" smell or a tell tail smell?

LMH said...

Woo! My mom always said I was a winner.

Larbo - kinda both, really.

Ulla said...

Bob said...

I'm feeling a little sheepish that I didn't get that one.

IdahoRocks said...

Love 'em, and beg the local vet for fresh ones....although ours are mostly beef. So what did you did with them, Bob?

Bob del Grosso said...

John, Idahorocks

We sold them.
