pickled tongue - kosher only

  • a

Most kosher delis feature corned beef, pastrami, turkey, salami, bologna, chopped liver - oh where oh where has the pickled tongue disappeared to?

    On a similar note, my kosher butcher (Kosher Experience, ShopRite, Cherry Hill NJ) always seems to have only cured whole tongue, not raw for cooking. (I assume cured is like pickled.) The one time I asked if they had any raw, he was surprised and maybe a little impressed to be asked. Of course, he also gave me the spiel about how high in cholesterol it is.

    1. Where are you located? I never have a problem getting good pickled tongue in Boston, Hartford, NY/NJ...

        Baruch, I'll be in Boston in February. Where can I find the kosher tongue? What brand is it?

          you can get pickeld tongue at:

          The Butcherie or Rubin's both in Brookline on Harvard St. These are both glatt establishments and the brands depend on what they are slicing that day but usually it is International Glatt, Aarons, or Abeles and Heymann

          I'll be in Boston next month. Where can I get the tongue, and what brand is it?
