Mountain Oysters, also known as prairie oysters, are that part of the
male animal which is removed in his youth that he may thereby be more
tractable and less, uh, masculine. They are considered to be quite a
delicacy. Some butcher shops sell bull testicles. These are good but
the best source is from young animals. The preparation of mountain
oysters is quite simple:
Season the flour with the salt, pepper, paprika, garlic, and cayenne.
If the mountain oysters are large, cut them into bite sized chunks.
Dust the mountain oysters in the flour and saute in a pan of hot oil
or deep fry. They should be tender on the inside and crisp on the
Serve with horseradish sauce or cocktail sauce
