I prefer it with bacon and egg! Can't say I have tried it with salt and vinegar.

Right, better go. We are heading home anytime now.

I like fatty black puddings with mustard--yumm.
Went out last week for a meal and had them in a tempura batter--think that is what it was---very good.

I think that if we gave too much thought to the source of what we eat then we would all be vegans. :shock:

This is very true. I have a love for foie gras but the method of it's 'creation' is not good at all.
You sent me a pic of the first spring lambs last week David, my first thought was how cute...my second, how long before they accompany mint sauce!

8 months, I think Mel.
And don't get me going on foie gras, at least the lambs have a life.

Yes Mel and my daughter informed me that the numbers that they paint on lambs denote the order that they are sent to the abbatoir.
Lamb is one meat that I very very rarely eat.

Like you said though David - "if we gave too much thought to the source of what we eat then we would all be vegans"

I am in complete agreement with you Gloria.
I won't buy it but I don't refuse it if offered to me when out.

I've eaten horse, found out after I had eaten it---it was quite good actually, had it in France.
Eaten dog in China, they told us it was chicken, that was quite good as well.
I would not have eaten either had I known.
What is not good is that we have horses, dogs and cats----wonder when I will find cat on the menu?????

That was how I ended up eating foie gras. I thought it was paté. It was New Years Eve a few years ago. We went to a party in France and it was a set menu. The paté was on crackers and served while everyone arrived. We had a tray of shellfish that I skimped on...I had the prawns but nothing else. Can't remember all the courses but there were about 7 or 8. We had lobster - wouldn't bother with that again, very over-rated. We had foie gras again but this time served as a liver, lightly fried. I was told by our friends what I had eaten once I had eaten it. It was a case of try it and then we will tell you. We also had boar that night.
