Can you have courting cake if you are married?

Might do the hotpot tomorrow night but without the kidney....we don't 'do' kidney.

I love kidney, and liver, never tried heart.
Will definitely try the Courting Cake.

Post subject:  Re: Lancashire Fare for November 27th - hearts

When I started work 45 years ago, I was living in digs. The landlady had good standards but was sensibly economical, and stuffed heart (lambs', I think) was a regular dish - and very tasty too. I found the flavour nicer than kidney, not at all overpowering, more like any other meat, dense though not chewy. I think they were slowly cooked in a pot-roast or casserole. A "hearty" meal for a cold winter's day!
