When I was little, my old country French mom would occasionally buy lamb brains from our local butcher shop (back when there were butcher shops). She would remove the membranes in cold running water, then place them in a pan with water, a little salt and a little vinegar and simmer until done, about 5 minutes or so. She would then remove them to a plate, slice them and put a pat of butter on each slice. They were WONDERFUL!!
Well, I recently had lamb brains on the brain (sorry) and bought 3 of them, shipped frozen from a farm. I intend to make the above recipe for tonight's dinner (good thing Husband is not home) but am wondering if anyone out there likes brains and, if so, how do you prepare them? I've seen a lot of fried brain recipes but am wondering if anyone has a European background that provided a different way to prepare them? All comments appreciated (even eeewwwwww:)).
