    Question Pork Offal

    Primal Fuel
    I got a bag from my meat CSA, and I'm not even sure what all is in it because my DH did the pickup. It's frozen, so it's hard to tell if it's one big organ, or a variety.

    Liver and heart maybe? I can give more details as it thaws.

    Any suggestings for seasoning and preparing? We haven't been too adventurous with the organs yet, so I am hoping to make this a good experience!

    One traditional recipe is faggots—here's one of many recipes you could adapt, if that appeals:

    BBC - Food - Recipes : Faggots with onion gravy

    Thanks for the link! But I'm pretty simple in the kitchen, so that one seems overwhelming.

    I adore pig hearts, usually just brown them in a saucepan, throw in some liquid (water/broth/wine) and vegetables (sauteed mushrooms and onion, carrots) and let them simmer for an hour, then reducing and finishing the sauce with some cream. For an extra step you can fill the hearts with herbs or garlic or dried fruit and tie them with some string or sticking a toothpick through.

    Thanks, this sounds like something I can handle! Do you cut up the heart at all before browning?

    I had some in a Latin American country a while back. They were called: chinchulin or something like that. I expected them to taste 'offal' but it wasn't bad. Kind of chewy though.

    No, but you can do that if you're in a hurry (the meat won't need to cook as long)
