We used to eat venison heart stuffed with spicy sausage when I was a kid. My dad would stuff it and bake it in the oven, then slice it thin so every slice had a bit of each.
I don't think I could even look at it now but I used to absolutely love the stuff! :P

I thought Mumpy had tagged me when she said she visited my site? It seems I was wrong. It must be whan you get someone else to play then. My apologies.

What is a stuffed heart I hear you ask? Well you take a little baa-lamb and then slaughter it. Casting aside everything but the heart you stuff it with sage and onion stuffing or. You then bake them in the oven very slowly. Make a delicious gravy, serve with some seasonal vegetables and Bob's yer Dads brother.

They are extremely yummy.

The Goldfish needs to be taught the art of the offal.

When I was a child, as well as hearts, kidneys and livers, these are some of the most definately NOT delicious dishes my mother would serve up on a regular basis.
Tripe (think its the stomach lining of something)
Pigs trotters
Cockles and winkels (?)
Pig's snout
Pig's cheek

As a meat-eater, I cannot possibly justify my... nausea at the idea of eating heart. What is it like? Is it like liver or kidneys and things or is it very much a taste of its own?

My ma used to serve stuffed heart because it was very cheap. I think it was ox or pig hearts, and probably very old ones at that. As I remember it the texture is rather like polythene and the taste is somewhat less exciting.

She used to serve it with boiled potatoes and boiled carrots and make me sit at table till it was eaten.

If you'll excuse me, I need to go and have a little lie down now (heave).

Hearts are not like polythene at all. In fact they are very yummy. Come to think of it CD is right. Ox heart is the nicest. I think they have a creamy texture and if you are are a fan of the fat on beef you'll be in luck. It has that type of taste. They aren't really like anything else though. I would send you some by post but they might be a bit worse for wear when they ariived ;-)

No, definitely don't want any in the post thanks! I did once receive a tin of mushy peas and a jar of pineapple jam in the post from AJ before we got together. The jam was following a lengthy e-mail debate about whether pineapple conserve would be a jam or a marmalade... young love, eh?
