Questions about beef tongue

OrganicLife | Apr 2, 2007 03:12 PM

Hi all,

I've always LOVED beef tongue but I haven't had it in close to 8 years, not since I switched my diet to organic. But now my pregnancy hormones are making me crave it from the jewish delis.

I have a few questions and please bear with me if they seem stupid as I know very little about jewish cooking:

If I were to order it from a jewish deli, would the tongue be Kosher? Isn't Kosher similar to organic in regard to no hormones, natural diet, no antibiotics?

Is the tongue processed or simply baked/boiled? How is your average deli tongue prepared? In other words, before it is sliced and put on my bread, what has already happened to the meat?

Does it count as a cold cut which is a no-no during pregnancy?

I would love to eat some tongue but only if it's a healthy option.
