    Yup Rocky Mountain Oysters. My son worked on a ranch in Nevada and every spring at branding time the rocky mountain oysters were the main entree

    souse meat(pork) is the same as headcheese made from the flesh of the head of lamb,beef. souse meat is packaged and sold in grocery stores down here , hot peppered souse is real good with cheese and crackers . Polk Salad (Pokeweed ) grows all over the place side of the road, fields and woods , mom used to mix it with Collard greens , Kale or with scrambled eggs and bacon bits, works real good on your digestive system. Wikipedia can tell you more

    Yup. went to search and found Polk is highly discouraged for human or animal consumption. Seems it is poisonous

    The mature plants ,seeds and roots are toxic, pick the new 12" sprouts early spring

    Oh I see. I talked to a friend in Georgia and she said they don't like souse meat, but she explained the similarity to head cheese

    Too bad we can't go back to those days and be grateful for what the Lord gave us and not waste so much edible products. Hard to even find Live and Onions on a menu these days. Used to be on all menus.

    Kim-Chi, Korean sour kraut. Very good, but the whole countryside will smell like the stuff once you open the container.
    I miss liver and onions too. It's spelled Poke, I believe, and I have eaten that too.
