25th Annual Turkey Testicle Festival - October 11th

I was at a Gardening conference where people from all over the state attend. So you pick up some goofy information, one is the Turkey Testicle Festival in Byron, south of Rockford. I'm also on the cusp of getting pig snout sandwich recommendations for southern Illinois. Plus a taxidermied wild boar's head for my jungle room.

In Stern's Road Food, Good Food, they had an entry for Jigg's Barbeque just off the expressway in Oklahoma. They were known for serving up Turkey Testicles. We were on our way to visit my 90+ year old Grandfather, who would appreciate such treats. We ordered our food and inquired about the turkey testicles. They replied with a blank face they don't sell turkey testicles. I guess we never did figure out the magic words because no turkey testicles were ever available in the 2-3 visits we made.

I'm not sure I'll be able to go to the Turkey Testicle Festival, but I'd appreciate a report on the taste and how they were served.

Best regards,
