Soak them in milk for 1/2 hour or more. discard the milk.

You can do the same thing for liver.

Lots of different names for internal organs. Not one of them hasn't been cooked in one way or another.

Sweetbreads are my favorite. Don't care for tongue or brains, but that's more of a texture and icky factor thing than how they taste.

Deer are amazing please don't burn the sauteed onions and I'll pass on the steak sauce, thank you.

People that have never eaten heart don't know what their missing. I'll take a plate of heart over a plate of steak anyday.

Try soaking them in buttermilk. The acidity will help with the urine smell/flavor. Eating offal from young animals makes the organ less "strong" tasting as well.

Yeah.... Anything that needs "help with the urine smell/flavor" is God telling you not to eat it.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.

I am game to try most parts of animals, but the body's "filters" I have no desire to eat. MOST of a animals body is ok to eat even If I find it icky but kidneys and livers I will pass on. Thats just my personal choice of course and it might be because I work in health care and see how these organs go bad in humans and its never pretty.

I've always been curious about the kidneys. Never done it though. Heart and liver are good stuff.
They are pretty similar to liver.

Would if I had too, but I don't. So, I won't. Mother made me when I was kid. Didn't impress me (knew what I was eating). Forgot what they tasted like. Not about to jog my memory.
A couple of DT 158 GDs will do it!
