I used to throw them in the scrapple pot along with livers, rib cages, etc. Then I sliced up a fresh one, fried it in butter and shared it with my granddaughter. Now she makes me save them all for her.


Eh...wot?

I never fixed it myself. Did bring more than a couple to my mother in-law. She did them in sweet & sour for me. I really don't know her recipe or the process. But it was kinda like pickled in jell. The lady at the farm where I worked while in high school. Used to have me bring her a smaller carp when I was shooting or spearing them. She made the carp in very similar what she called sweet & Sour.
Both the heart and carp were ok that way. But not something I could eat a lot of in one setting. More like appetizers ate on crackers. I haven't seen anyone makes that type Sweet & Sour since them two old country gals been gone.
My wife may have the recipe if it's in her mom's old cook book. I have to ask.

Simmer whole on medium heat for a few hours. Then slice and fry in butter
And onion. It will be much more tender and some fat will render out that way too.

Cut and fry with onions. I prefer to cut in smaller pieces to cook faster. I always bring salt pork to deer camp to add for flavor or and fat.

Sliced about 1/2” thick. Salt, pepper, flour, fried in bacon grease, in a cast iron skillet. Had it last night with french fries. Very good!

I tried it a few years ago after reading how good it was on here. I cleaned it up, cut the valves out of it, sliced it up, fried it and it was horrible. The hearts stay with the gutpile again and the coyotes eat it all.

they are kinda chewy

cube them small and toss in flower , fry in a little grease then make the hole mess into gravy and put over biscuits
