Anyone for some Pork Head & Tongue sausage?? [Image: eatdrink021.gif]

 
Sure! Can I get some fries with that?! (Actually, that recipe does LOOK pretty, like some kinda weirdo sushi. I might've picked that up at a party... shudder!)
 
I think, though, that I have all y'all beat in the gross-out contest that seems to have arisen. Are you ready?
 
No, you're not ready. Trust me.
 
But I will share anyway, but

Various Uses of Placenta <P align=center>[Image: PLAC038.jpg]
<P align=center> 
Each placenta weighs approximately 1/6 of the baby's weight. Cut the meat away from the membranes with a sharp knife. Discard the membranes.
 
Placenta Cocktail: 1/4 cup raw placenta, 8oz V-8 juice, 2 ice cubes, 1/2 cup carrot. Blend at high speed for 10 seconds  
Quote:But be creative and leave a few chunks!
  Placenta Lasagne: Use your favorite lasagne recipe and substitute this mixture for one layer of cheese. In 2 tbl. olive oil, quickly saute meat of 3/4 placenta, ground or minced plus 2 sliced cloves of garlic, 1/2 tsp. oregano, 1/2 diced onion & 2 tbl. tomato paste, or 1 whole tomato.  
Quote:Mamma mia, attsa one-a spicy placenta!
  Placenta Spaghetti: Cut meat of 3/4 placenta into bite size pieces, then brown quickly in 1 tbl. butter plus 1 tbl. oil. Then add 1 large can tomato puree, 2 cans crushed pear tomatoes, 1 onion, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 tbl. molasses, 1 bay leaf, 1 tbl. rosemary, 1 tsp. ea. of salt, honey, oregano, basil, and fennel. Simmer 1 1/2 hours.  
Quote:Oh, that fennel is a nice touch!
 
Placenta Stew: Meat of 3/4 placenta in bite size chunks, 1 potato (cubed), 1/4 cup fresh parsley, 2 carrots, 3 ribs celery, 1 zucchini, 1 large tomato, 1 small onion. Dredge meat in 1 tbl. flour mixed with 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp. paprika, pinch of cloves, pinch of pepper, 6-8 crushed coriander seeds. Saute meat in 2 tbl. oil, then add vegetables (cut up) and 4-5 cups of water. Bring to full boil, then simmer for 1 hour. 
 
Quote:Hmmm... I'm trying to figure out how much placenta I'd need for a dinner for four. If Little Johnny weighed 8 pounds, that'd give each of my 4 guests a little over a third of a pound of my flesh. That'd be plenty, especially if I serve up a hearty ale alongside!
 
Placenta Pizza: Grind placenta. Saute in 2 tbl. olive oil with 4 garlic cloves, then add 1/4 tsp fennel, 1/4 tsp. pepper, 1/4 tsp paprika, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. oregano, 1/4 tsp. thyme, and 1/4 cup of wine. Allow to stand for 30 minutes, then use with your favorite home made pizza recipe. It's a fine placenta sausage topping.

Perfect for the men as they watch their football games! They'll love it; just don't tell 'em what it is, girls!
