For my first recipe out of Odd Bits, I decided to bust it open, literally.
The author, Jennifer Mclagan, mentioned that a sheep’s head was quite fiercesome looking. When my butcher brought it out from the back, held right about head level, I’ll admit that it looked quite hideous. The eyeballs bulged from the naked flesh, teeth bared, tongue limp having fallen through the bottom of the jaw. He wrapped it up gently so the eyeballs didn’t break – a sheep’s head with a broken eyeball could be even more gruesome if it were possible – threw in a couple pig’s feet and off I walked home.
