I think duck tongue would probably be in my all time top 10 list of things to NOT try, ever, under no circmstances whatsoever :lol: . I have never liked duck anyway and the idea of eating ones tongue :shock: .

I will wait for your report with great interest.

Have you tried them yet? I was serious about NEVER wanting to try them, but I am curious to see what you think.

I just finished preparing the main course for tomorrows traditional dinner in my household....Homemade Lasagna, which will be served with garlic toast, and followed bu cheesecake for desert.

We started this tradition years ago when we decided we were tired of the "standard" holiday fare

Good for you. Why do something just because it is traditional, all traditions had to be done for the first time by somebody so why not you.

Cooking can be quite complicated in our house, my Mrs, Glynis, is allergic to meat, our daughter, Amelia, has a wheat/gluten intolerance, and I am diabetic. We still have a Christmas roast, Amelia and I have a small chicken, I do Glynis a spiced butternut squash and at least two different stuffings, probably date,walnut and stilton , and sage onion and garlic. Made of course with a spelt, rye and wheat loaf as the base so Amelia can have some.

And don`t get me started about trifle :roll: , finding a low sugar, non gelatine jelly is getting harder all the time.

With the sun shining here I've been back in the kitchen I'm currently working on two things BBQ sauce and Iced Tea the iced tea I think I've got it to the point where I'm happy with it and as a bonus it costs alot less than if I bought it due to the fact that I make it in 2 liter batches.

As for the bbq sauce this is what the first attempt looks like

Is the BBQ sauce sweet or hot (as in jalapenos, etc.)?
If you can't be a good example, be a horrible warning

In this case more of a sweet version so if I've got my culinary geography right that would make it more a Kansas/Memphsis style sauce

I did try them and I have been meaning to get back to this, they weren't to bad I think the best way to describe them is like dates in which they have a hard piece in the middle that you discard, flavour wise they where nice would I get them again probably not as a result of logistics as I can no longer just walk down the road and but buy them.

However if you get the chance to try them they are quite nice still not the weirdest thing I've eaten I think pigs brain gets that award

Thanks for the update, they sound interesting but I am afraid that you still have not sold me on them :lol: .

Its funny really, I have eaten ox tongue and while I would not go out of my way to eat it again it was ok, but there is just something about the idea of a duck tongue that makes me squirm. :roll:
