(Meats.) - (Recipes Tried And True)

Wash the tongue carefully, and let it lie in cold water for several
hours before cooking--over night, if possible. Lay it in a kettle of
cold water when it is to be cooked; bring the water to a boil slowly,
and let it simmer until the tongue is so tender that you can pierce it
with a fork. A large tongue should be over the fire about four hours.
When it has cooled in the liquor in which it was boiled, remove the
skin with great care, beginning at the tip, and stripping it back.
Trim away the gristle and fat from the root of the tongue before
serving it. Serve with drawn butter or lemon sauce.

Stewed Fresh Tongue

Soak a fresh tongue in cold water for one hour, then boil it three
hours and remove the skin. Place the tongue in a stewpan with half
a head of celery, one turnip, one carrot and two onions cut in
small pieces, one dozen cloves, salt and cayenne. Simmer for one
and one-half hours. Take out the tongue and add to the gravy one
tablespoonful of made mustard, one of Worcestershire sauce, three
tablespoonfuls of mushroom catsup, three picketed gherkins chopped,
one glass of port or red wine, and two ounces of butter, creamed with
three ounces of browned flour. Cook until smooth. Return the tongue to
the sauce and simmer half an hour.

Other Recipes


Put on to boil in a large kettle, fill with cold water, enough to
completely cover the tongue; keep adding hot water as it boils down so
as to keep it covered with water until done. Keep covered with a lid
while boiling and put a heavy weight on the top of the lid so as not to
let the steam escape. (If you have an old flat iron use it as a weight.)
It should boil very slowly and steadily for four hours. When tongue is
cooked set it outdoors to cool in the liquor in which it was boiled. If
the tongue is very dry, soak overnight before boiling. In serving slice
very thin and garnish with parsley.

Other Recipes

rub in seasoning. Put tongue in crock; add the balance of salt, etc.;

The majority of the cuts of meat which are kosher are those which
require long, slow cooking. These cuts of meat are the most nutritious
ones and by long, slow cooking can be made as acceptable as the more
expensive cuts of meat; they are best boiled or braised.
In order to shut in the juices the meat should at first be subjected to
a high degree of heat for a short time. A crust or case will then be
formed on the outside, after which the heat should be lowered and the
cooking proceed slowly.
This rule holds good for baking, where the oven must be very hot for the
first few minutes only; for boiling, where the water must be boiling and
covered for a time, and then placed where it will simmer only; for
broiling, where the meat must be placed close to the red-hot coals or
under the broiler flame of the gas stove at first, then held farther
Do not pierce the meat with a fork while cooking, as it makes an outlet
for the juices. If necessary, to turn it, use two spoons.
