Lung recipes?

ltdead Jul 15, 2011 11:39 PM

I'm helping with a lamb slaughter tomorrow, and in return I get all the offal I want - including the unattainable. Lungs! ... but what do I do with them?

I'm excited to try them while I have the chance, but I'd love to be pointed in the right direction!

      Even back during the Depression, my grandmother cooked them for the family dog. ;)

      That aside, there's an (in)famous Greek soup traditionally served on Easter called mayeritsa that uses the lungs and other offal that might interest you. I've never been able to bring myself to taste it let along cook it (vbg), but here's a link to get you started: http://www.ultimate-guide-to-greek-fo...

        My old Italian friend used to get misty eyed when talking about making lung sausage. I never did find out the reason for his nostalgia; was it because it was tasty? was it memories of days gone by? I don't know.
        However it was pork lung he talked about - and it was mixed with ground pork. I'm gussing it was originally a solution of what actually to do with the lungs: make sausage, of course!

          Little late to the party, but if you'd like a haggis recipe, I've got one banging around somewhere.

            Last time I had lungs I ground them up with a bunch of other stuff and made sausage. Quite tasty!
