Save the Date!

The Testicle Festival is back on. I know how eager my readers are to sink their teeth into some fine bull testicles, often referred to as Rocky Mountain oysters, calf fries, or huevos del toros (literally “bulls’ eggs), among other euphemisms, and here’s the opportunity.

The festival is scheduled for August 1st in one of my favorite places in Texas, the great town of Fredericksburg. “Go for the testicles, stay for the beer,” is what I always say.

I kid, but the festival looks like a lot of fun. If it weren’t for Covid-19, I might attend. And if you’ve never visited Fredericksburg, I suggest adding it to your “to do” list.

My, Grandmother! What large testicles you have.

Much more palatable looking once they’ve been deep fried.

Peace, people.

  1. Warning for those who are sensitive about animal cruelty!!!

    I grew up on a cattle station. One of the things I remember as a child was bringing calves, a process that involves burning a mark into the rump of the young beast, removing the stubs of their horns and taking out the testicles of the young males. It was a barbaric, brutal process. The indigenous men who worked for my father always brought their eskies to take home the testicles. Apparently testicles make great curry! I never found out.

    1. It is barbaric! I grew up in the panhandle of Texas, and our ranchers do this, as well. I’m mostly vegan these days, but even when I wasn’t, I wasn’t enthusiastic about eating “calf fries”.

  2. I always remember that scene from Funny Farm “Now there’s a fellow who knows when he’s got something good in his mouth.” I don’t stray into territory like that when I eat. I was watching some food show where the guy drove across country and he stopped somewhere for what was called “The best brain sandwich ever” and he didn’t like it. I could have not liked it without travelling or buying one.
