We used to get it at the local deli. My father loves it but I always demured. In one of the Little House books, Laura Ingalls Wilder describes making head cheese.

I'm part Slavic as well . . . Polish but with Irish, Austrian and Hungarian in the mix.


That's a very colourful mix, POM! Smile

I recall, when I was little & my mother was cooking up a big pot of the pig's head concoction (with lots of garlic!) that the ears were particularly tasty .. with a kind of interesting crunchy texture! Wink

@farmerman,
Come on, farmerman! Tofu is a healthy food made from soy, and there are several ways to prepare it for eating.

The name "tofu" is used in most Asian countries, and is prepared differently in most countries.

Tofu itself is bland, but it can be flavored in many different ways. I like to add ginger and soy sauce when eaten fresh. Koreans prepare it in their soups, and the Chinese prepare it with other vegetables and meats.

@cicerone imposter,
I certainly don't like/love all tofu dishes, and I am very careful to limit the amount of soy in my diet, but there are a few dishes that use tofu that I am NOT interested in giving up.

1. hot and sour soup mmmmmmmmmmm I will travel many hours and miles to get a good bowl of hot and sour soup

2. pad thai

3. the wondrous deep-fried mashed tofu dumpling dish we sometimes get at Pearl Court. It is served on steamed bok choy with a lustrous sauce

@ehBeth,
You're making me hungry, Beth.

One of my favourite Vietnamese tofu tofu dishes (cooked in a clay pot) looks something like this. Not quite the same dish, but close. Wonderful stuff! :

@farmerman,
I ate tofu once, a few years ago. It must not have been too tasty as there's been no second time. Might try the Coluber2000's recipe though.

But, Farmerman, just yesterday you were talking about LARD, all kinds of lard.
You don't have a chance of liking tofu, less it's fried in lard.

@msolga,
I met a young woman from Hungary and, to add to our conversation, I told her that my maternal great-grandmother was from Budapest. "Ah," she responded, "I am learning that most Americans have a secret Hungarian grandmother."

Ive gotta say that the "not too bad" tofu I had was made by this Korean immigrant guy. The 'fu actually looked like beef chunks. (The mealy texture is still a bit un appetizing to me). BUT the use of the jalapenos and the nice garlicky sauce was good. I coulda made a sammich outta the jalapenos and the gravy, just leave out the tofu.
Hmm.
Sorry I missed most of the discussion, farmer.
You say the 'fu' was kind of like beef chunks. . .
What about the 'toe'?
I've collected toefu before, not that I'm proud to say it.

Dating a vegan has opened up my diet's vocabulary so to speak. I've never had a problem with tofu, but now I really like it. This is good too, because it continues to become a larger part of my diet as I'm retiring red meat and poultry.
