When my friend posted an image of the packet on her Facebook timeline there were immediate responses. I asked if they came with hair attached. Apparently not.
The day she brought them into work many a very funny comment was shared.
In the end we had to dive in and have a go.
So I can now say I’ve chewed Camel Balls and blown bubbles 😉
There’s even a YouTube video about them
I’ve also eaten camel before. It was in the early 2000s in Alice Springs. That night I also ate horse, buffalo, crocodile, emu and lots of other animal species. Camel is okay, but nothing beats a piece of prime rib eye steak with the bone attached and lots of nice marbling.
I’ve also eaten calf testicles that I’d removed myself. As a kid I had a friend whose parents ran cattle on a property near Blackbutt. I remember helping with sump oiling fences and castrating and dehorning and branding and immunising calves. After learning the technique of castrating calves I discovered when I was an intern on a urology rotation that castrating humans wasn’t that different except you sewed up the ball sack at the end. I enjoyed that rotation because my bosses let me do the orchidectomies. And um no I didn’t eat the human testicles like I did the calf testicles. Calf testicles are delicious with bacon, liver, tomato, mushrooms, fried egg and toast. They make a big breakfast better.
Now I want to ask a big favour. If you’re on Facebook can you please go to YummyLummy and Like it. With a couple more likes I’ll start to receive some insight analytics. Thank you.
Have you eaten the testicles of any animal lately? Tell me about your experience. Have a good one and eat yummy 😉
