    So my coworker informed me he ate his deer tongue from last weekend. I've never had it or kept one from a deer. Let's hear your recipes!

    I won't try eating tongue from anything, it may be delicious but the thought of it makes me weak in the stomach!
    There's quite a few things in the line of food that sound and/or look disgusting and I'll never attempt to eat it

    I always enjoyed beef tongue growing up and thought there is no reason a deer tongue wouldn't be good. Took me a couple decades to get around to actually trying it. So about 2 years ago I attempted it. I was shocked at how much work it was to "retrieve" it. Once I had it in my hands, it seemed so small that by the time all of the skin and such were removed, there wouldn't be anything left, so that is when I aborted the project. SO, I still cannot tell you if deer tongue is good or not.

    We had beef tongue every year when I was a kid after we butchered. After cooking, we usually sliced and made sandwiches. Texture is different. A deer tongue is rather small, but probably taste about the same as a cow's tongue. Not a lot of meat from the tail, but that had a better flavor IMO. Similar to neck roast.

    I've learned a lot from this show.

    I love beef tongue. Simmer in some broth, wine vinegar, sugar, pepper and an herb or two. Skin, slice, serve on toasted bread with butter and Dijon. As much as I love that, for some reason the thought of deer tongue gives me the heebie jeebies.... Probably stupid, I know...

    They are good! Season the water and boil. Peel and eat. Texture like heart. All muscle, lean.

    That's funny. Some people won't eat anything that came from an animal's mouth, but have no problem eating an egg. And you know where eggs pop out of.
