Friends, life cannot be all sunshine and flowers. Sometimes something happens to you that you think you may never recover from.
Such a thing happened to me last night.
While innocently flipping through a cookbook I came across a recipe that struck fear in my heart, and literally made Scott leave the room. It is a recipe that would make grown men cry, and no one hungry.
I give to you...

1 lb of ram or bull penis
3 tb oil
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tsp coriander seeds, crushed
1 tomato, chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds, crushed
salt and pepper
Scald the penis** (!!!!!!!!), drain and clean it. Place in a pan, cover with water and bring to the boil. Remove the scum and simmer for 10 minutes. Drain and slice. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the onion garlic and coriander until the onion is golden. Add the penis slices** (!!!!!) and fry on both sides for a few minutes. Stir in the remaining ingredients, add enough water to cover and bring to the boil. Lower the heat, cover and simmer for about 2 hours, until tender. Add a little water from time to time to keep from burning.
(** Two things I never thought I would say. Ever. )
Now I know there are lots of people out there who enjoy organ meat, tripe, sweetbreads, all that sort of stuff, it's called offal. And that's fine by me. Good for you, you are more adventurous than I will ever be. I'm sure it tastes really good.
But seriously, PENIS?
