Pickled Tongue

I have a hard and fast rule that I won’t eat anything that could taste me back, so no pickled tongue for me. I realize this is a delicacy for some, and in many Jewish delis you will see tongue on the menu. It is also more common in Hispanic countries. It just isn’t something for me.

Pickled Tongue

1 tongue (washed)

7 to 8 cups of water

? 1/4 cup of salt

2 bay leaves

4 peppercorns

1 onion quartered

3 cloves

Cook 3 to 4 hours. Take from kettle and remove skin. Put tongue in large enough container (not metal) so broth will cover tongue. Weigh down with saucers. Refrigerate when cool.

  1. I remember eating beef tongue growing up.. my mother would would add onions and mustard, making a sandwich spread.. I must admit it does not look very appetizing :)
