Cow Heels


The theme today for members of CDPB is "Feet" so I thought I'd show you some cow heels.

Despite the monochrome rendering, this isn't an ancient photograph. It was taken recently at the tripe stall belonging to Jack Curvis.

You can see another photograph of the cow heels on his stall on my Ackworth born, gone West blog.

I had wanted to feature pig's trotters but they sell so well that Jack had sold his stock before I could get down to the market.

Umm ... ugh ... what do they taste like? How do you cook them?

Fascinating response to the theme ...

cieldequimper said...

Amazing choice! My grandmother used to cook them, as well as pig's trotters!

Lois said...

Oh my goodness! Those are quite unique.

Keropok Man said...

Hmmm I must taste this one day!
(oh with recipe included! lol)

Pig's trotters are delicious. So are chicken feet. hehe..

Happy Theme Day!

OMG I'm going to faint. Sensitive vegetarian alert! In keeping with my mantra that "daily images should not always me pretty" top marks... now pass me the sickbag.

Kate said...

You know, it's hard to make feet attractive either on humans or animals, but these don't look too bad!

Cow feet! Brit feet! Hyde cow Feet greet! Meet fun heel cow feet! Pickled feet? Eatable feet or yummy feet? Such a treat, feet?! EAGAN daily photo feet greet from my Minnesota street!

I'd never heard of cow feet being sold as food. Never gave it any thought, either. How interesting! That's one reason I love to travel, even through photos.

Jilly said...

Well a good choice for today but I wish the cow was alive!

Shantaram said...

Thanks, Gerald, that's a new one! I've tasted lamb trotters, but didn't know that there was a bovine version as well!

Never seen them like this.

Ann (MobayDP) said...

i've never seen these raw before. But here in Jamaica this (called Cow foot) is eaten as a kind of stew with lima beans.

I'm vegetarian so I've never had it.

Buck said...

Oho! Wonderful take on the theme, I love it! This is one for the 'waste not, want not' file.

Hilda said...

I'm glad to see another country that doesn't let any part of the pig go to waste!

B Squared said...

Never "herd" of either. What do people do with them?

Tash said...

They look so unusual and quite pretty. I would never have thought them to be heels. Very original!

KAZ said...

Gerald - that is soooo horrible.
I used to stand outside the tripe shop in Blackburn while my mum went inside.
I refused to sit at the table if it was being served.

Mo said...

Very tasty. They do look a different colour to what I am used to seeing though.

lavenderlady said...

Gerald, this is very creative. with what you posted and what Shannon posted for my blog, we could have dinner.

BeachILike said...

Look good and taste good too?

Thanks for stop by my blog, I just join CDP not long ago.

Move faster next time. I used to be a butcher even had my own shop and did slaughtering for a short while but I dont miss it just the being able to do it. XXX Don

It reminds me of the comics and Desperate Dan who ate cow pie.
