Freirich also produces whole cooked (calves?) tongues which I've had. I remember them from my childhood. As a kid I always thought it was weird to see a whole tongue folded in half and back, inside a plastic bag in a supermarket case. Didn't stop me from loving it, though.

One is often told that it is very wrong to attack religion because religion makes men virtuous. So I am told; I have not noticed it. (Bertrand Russell)

Believing there is no god gives me more room for belief in family, people, love, truth, beauty, sex, Jell-O, and all things I can prove and that make this life the best life I will ever have. (Penn Jillette)

The tongues are whole smoked tongues. And I find them outrageously expensive.

They make both. Cooked and smoked. The cooked can be used right out of the cryo. I think the smoked requires some sort of cooking. Cooked tongue is a pretty expensive item, but they're tasty.

Yeah, but when I can get it at a small fraction of the price easily in Greenpoint, Brighton Beach, etc....I just can't plonk down that money for an overly salty thing that's been sitting on a supermarket shelf wrapped in plastic for god knows how long.

And making boiled tongue is just about the easiest thing on earth...
