Strangest animal body part you have eaten

...and loved?

Vegans sorry, but we don't want to hear it.

Inspired by a website talking about the joys of Hog Jowls (no kidding).

It got me to thinking about what strange bits I had eaten and loved.

Sheep's balls, they take them young and the meat is tender and delicious.

A section of turtle's leg, with the green skin still on and pieces of bone sticking out either end.

No, wait, I didn't eat it. I was served it at a Chinese restaurant, but I couldn't get it down.

Armadillo. Strangely enough, it DID taste like chicken, and it looked like it too.

Chapulines, grasshoppers. Have had them a few times. First in Oaxaca, where they were great. Also at Toloache, a Mexican restaurant in New York which I otherwise love, but which doesn't do chapulines very well.

Not so strange, you can buy pig's cheeks in Waitrose supermarket.

Mind you, I remember in Prague being told that fish cheeks were a delicacy.

I never heard of it.
