Example text

I learned by well-timed eavesdropping during hog-killing time that one of my uncles, now deceased, had a taste for the testicles, cleaned and fried. A bit of research in later years discloses that some other people regard them as gourmet items, and how the name Rocky Mountain Oysters came to be applied is a mystery to me. Never having tried to cook them, and having no inclination to do so, I cannot vouch for their appeal. To each his own. 1 pound "Rocky Mountain Oysters" (or "Lamb's fry") 6 cups water 1 egg, beaten 1 cup bread crumbs, lightly seasoned 1 teaspoon chopped parsley Salt and pepper to taste Boil the fry for 15 minutes.

Place in heavy kettle, cover with water, and simmer until very tender, about 1 to 1 % hours. Remove chicken and squirrel or rabbit bones. Return boned meat to broth, add vegetables, season to taste, and simmer until done, about 45 minutes. Serves 6. generously. Note: Variations are in order, to suit your fancy and the garden's offering. Avoid cabbage, turnips, and such; they are a bit strong-flavored for this dish. Use cabbage for slaw, if you wish. French Canadian Stew This might be named Woodsman's Stew, for it is a very hearty dish, which will sustain a man on the move.

Spare Ribs A generous slab of spare ribs was always given to relatives and/or friends who helped at hog-killing time, but we kids made sure our dad held back enough for one meal for us. Fresh spare ribs are something to remember with pleasure. Sometimes our mother boiled them; sometimes she baked them. Either way, they were usually served with apple sauce or fried apple slices, sauerkraut, and mashed potatoes. Some of our German neighbors stuffed them. t teaspoon pepper Do not cut ribs into small pieces.
