Happy Valentine’s Day.
This is the closest subject as I can think of - that has to do with hearts and such.
We eat them. I can barely believe it myself. Heart is worse than a tongue and better by far than liver (in my biased opinion). Hubby likes it stuffed (the good part is the stuffing of course).
I tolerate it pickled.
If you can make food out of stuff that others toss, you’ll have a freezer full.
Mixture for eggs, beets, beans, mushrooms, etc. is 1 cup sugar, 1 1/4 cup vinegar, 1/3 cup water, and 3/4 ts. salt. Bring these to a boil with 1 ts. pickling spice until color changes. (spices can be caged or left free and put into jars). When doing meat (cook and cut it first) add another 3/4 ts. salt and another 1/2 cup sugar. You can optionally add a little cayenne too.
