Ox Penis. Seriously.

JoanN | Mar 1, 2009 04:20 PM

I was in a huge Asian market in central New Jersey today and saw, in the frozen food section, piled high, at least 3 dozen ox penises. I’ve been in this store many times and never noticed them. Not that they weren’t there, but seems to me that a big sign reading “Penis,” in English, would have caught my eye before.

I know about eating penis to promote virility, but I thought that was mostly dried powder. Googling wasn’t particularly informative. I’m guessing the store might have been unusually well stocked with this item in celebration of the year of the ox? If so, what do you think people might have been doing with it? On topic, please. I’m thinking in terms of home-cooked dishes here. And would everyone partake?
