What she said. One of my favorite meats (never mind the fact that I saw this without my glasses and read "delicious" at first as "hideous").

It's got a very rich flavor, and lots of gelatin, so it makes great stocks and gravies, with an unctuous texture.

Adamantius (what is it with me and meats and gelatin the past week or two? It's not cold enough yet!)
