When we were young and counting pennies Miz Anne and I used to buy hearts at the
local abbatoir. They sold them fresh for cat meat or something. I would buy a
couple of dozen beef hearts for a dime apiece and then grind them into some
really lean hamburger meat. Heart is just another muscle isn't it. I, too, avoid
organ meat nowadays but for the chloesterol content. We allow ourselves some
calves liver about every three months and sit and eat our liver and onions while
making groaning noises of delight. We both grew up eating the cheap cuts and
organ meat and really like liver.

I know what you mean about some of the foods you ran into over there. There were
a few dishes I wouldn't eat until one of my Arab friends told me what was in
them. Never did learn to like sun dried fish soup, the smell alone was a turn
off but my friends smacked their lips over it. Guess it's all what you're used
