Bull
Mountain or Prairie Oysters
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:

Ingredients

mountain oysters
flour
salt
pepper
paprika
garlic
cayenne

Preparation

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 sauté in a pan of hot oil or deep fry. They should be tender on the inside and crisp on the outside.

Serve with horseradish sauce or cocktail sauce
