There is a lot of talk on these boards of various offal delicacies. Offal does not appeal to me, but I know there are many who enjoy it in a variety of ways. I’ve done a cursory search for the nutritional value of offal and came up with very little other than it is rich in vitamins.
My question is why is it eaten? I understand some cultures wish not to waste anything from a slaughtered animal. But is it really Healthy? Delicious? Cheap? Or do you eat it for the novelty or “shock value”?
No judgments, just curiosity.
(BTW - some of my favorite lyrics from The Misfits: "Brains for breakfast, brains for lunch, brains for dinner, brains for brunch. We eat brains at every meal, why can't we have some guts?)
