Thanks to my new meat CSA (Stillman's Turkey Farm) I've managed to get my hands on a lambs head.
My grand pl
an was to break down my l
ambs head into it's various parts (skull
, brain, tongue) and use each of those el
ements in different dishes. This pan was derail
ed when I real
ized that in order to break down this head I needed a saw. And I do not have a food safe saw.
Trying my best to break it down, this didn't help at all.
The obvious solution to my dilemma is soup. I'm hoping that if I keep my stock boiling really low then my tongue and brain wont get overcooked. We'll see how I do.
Fingers crossed my plan works!
Worst case scenario is a really killer batch of scotch broth - and all things considered that's a pretty awesome worst case.
