First Offal Foray?

jlestos | Mar 7, 2011 10:24 PM

So I've never eaten any sort of internal organs out of an animal before. To me at least, that seems a bit depressing considering how very often I'll have some food show on and the host is saying how delicious it is. I'd rather not spend big bucks on a restaurant meal(assuming I could find one in this town that offers offal), so I was wondering, where should I start if I were going to try my hand at preparing offal? So far I've found tripe, gizzards of chicken, sweetbreads, and a few different livers, although as of late I haven't been looking rigorously. Is there a good starting off point or organ I should try first to see if I even like it before I venture further?
