I was pretty pleased to see while driving through Montana this summer signs for the annual Testicle Festival (the url of which is, charmingly, 'testy festy'). A shame I couldn't go.

I see he likes to cook from first principles.

I'm a bit lazier & tend to go for the processed ingredients: Cooking with Cum.

Mostly because "castratozone" doesn't quite roll off the tongue.

But I hear it melts in the mouth.

They're delicious, but very irregular in size.

I've eaten lamb testicles (lamb fries) and they were damn nice; only tried pig testicles once and they were not so pleasant, though they could have been badly cooked (I haven't eaten enough to have a frame of reference).

Can you believe it's been 12 years since the debut of Mr. T Ate My Balls?

12 years! That's like a Thousand Years in Internet Time.

Fairly certain this isn't vegan.

There was a taco truck about 2 kilometers from my high school, Taqueria Don Pepe, and you had to call before 8:00 a.m. to reserve the tastier bits, testicles and eyes. You could also call and hour or so in advance to ask for extra crispy tripe. The hungover phone call and 2km. Monday walk was completely worth it, my typical order would be 1 sesos (cow brain), 1 or 2 buche (pig's esophagus), 1 lengua (tongue), 1 cachete (cheek), 1 creadillas (testicles) and sometimes 1 ojo (eye). My friend Alan would eat 6 or 7 tripa dura (crunchy tripe).

Sometimes the taco trucks in Oakland and around Potrero Hill, and some taquerias in 24th St. in the Mission will have creadillas, and buche is quite common. I encourage you to try them. Testicles are surprisingly soft and mild; brain and eyes are a lot more weird. The butcher shop on Mission between 23rd and 24th sells all this parts.

I am happy to see this delicious food getting its due. I predict Creadillas will become the Bacon of 2010.

Completely unrelated, there was only one butcher in my grandmother's town, and they only killed one animal a day. My dad's favorite food was creadillas in green tomatillo sauce, and my uncles favorite was beef stew with lots of udder and bone marrow. The both visited from college on the same day, and my grandma ran to the butcher and ordered udder and balls. The butcher said "If I had such an animal, I wouldn't kill it, and I'd be rich." She never lived that down, and my veterinarian uncle tried for years to find an hermaphrodite calf to buy her. He found one years after she died.

And that book? Eponisverical or antieponisverical?

They used some of these recipes on America's Testicle Kitchen.

I'll try damn near anything once (got fooled into okra twice -- shame on... shame on... won't get fooled agin) but I simply, and unapologetically, draw the line at bugs and balls.

From the dedication: "to my parents and my grandmother ... for introducing me to the delicious world of testicles ..."
