  • Now that I'm no longer nauseated....

    You'll want to add head cheese to that godawful list, if it's made. Don't make me explain. It's exactly what it sounds like.

  • skipvia, I was saving that list idea for you. :) But pancreas did cross my mind!

    Also squirrel brain. People eat squirrel brains, don't they?

    ... You know... I'm going to log off for a while and go barf.

  • Hey c_b--if you do make that list, put sweetbreads on it. If the thymus and pancreas don't qualify as organ meats, I don't know what would.

  • They are intestines--large intestines, which to me means colon. I suspect that real chitlins were made of both, actually.

  • Vile. My mom likes it. Wait... maybe she likes liver sausage. Well, it looks like blood, anyway. Eecch.

    You know, Organ Meats would make a great name for a list, wouldn't it? Or maybe "Eew Meats." Then one could include blood sausage (since technically it's not an organ meat). If one were inclined.

    Wait... are chitlins really colons? Or intestines? I thought they were intestines. Granted, there's not a huge amount of difference.

  • While we're on the subject of "eew" meats, how about blood sausage? I could bring myself to eat chitlins even knowing that they're pig colons before I'd eat something called blood sausage.

  • This is a really evocative (or provocative, as in "eew!") phrase.

    Of course, any phrase with "meat" in it usually is. See "tasty breakfast meat."
