        When I was a kid back in the 70’s I remember seeing tongue in the grocery store. Would weird me out. I guess now one would have to request it. GAK!

    Hey! Us old people — you know, whose parents grew up during the depression — ate AND enjoyed beef tongue. Back then, it was cheap. Actually, tongue is surprising mild in flavor and is delicious cold in a sandwich. My mother also made raisin sauce similar, I think, to the raisin sauce here.
