What is a mountain oyster?

Dear Mountie,

What is a mountain oyster?



Dear Zsolt

the Mountain Oyster, also known as Prairie Oysters, Montana Tendergroins or Swinging Sirloin is a delicacy enjoined in the mid-western states of the US.

Peeled, rolled in flour, lightly seasoned and fried over an open camp fire, this culinary treat is removed from the bull at an early age, unless - of course - the particular specimen would be used for breeding, in which case elimination of said appendix come ingredient would prove a major obstacle.
