It has the taste and consistency of stewed blanket.

I've never had the pleasure? of eating tripe. What's it like if someone would care to enlighten me? It seems to have a "reputation".....
It's like eating something like a car tyre with the flavour (I imagine) of snot.

They also cut it up and call it haggis.

Tripe's brilliant.
A bit chewy/rubbery. Not a strong flavour, my mum used to casserole it in a white sauce. Plenty of parsley.
Great stuff.

I once dumped a cross-eyed girl.

I thought she was seeing someone else.

Apparently it's impossible to eat 4 dry crackers in one minute.
Always up for the challenge I gave it a go.
I managed three and then choked on a plastic moustache.

What do you call a boomerang that doesn't come back ?

A stick.

Most tripe comes from cattle stomachs. Makes it no less disgusting. Pretty sure that during the 70's the most supple, nutritious, and tasty gradings were used as soles on a brand of suede boot (the so-called crepe sole). Those castoffs deemed too tough, rubbery, or otherwise unsuitable for use in footware were sold as food.

When I was in Venezuela years ago tripe, or mondongo, as it was called there was considered quite a delicacy. I went to meet my girlfriends parents and for lunch they served up the stuff made in a soup. Now I eat pretty much anything.....but that stuff is the stuff of nightmares. Nothing quite like trying not to wretch at the dining table.

Isn't tripe what you wrap up the sheep's eyes in to make them more edible? Or the kidneys, or the sweet-breads, or the liver, or..........I need bucket, quick.

One of the names for it in the Philippines was "towel". Despite being a northerner, I have never tried it but it seems to me "towel" could be an apt word for it.

I haven't eaten tripe, mainly because I haven't been offered any or seen it on sale.

But the liver and kidneys are commonly eaten and enjoyed. Considering their functions in the animal's body, surely they should be less palatable to the fastidious eater than the mere lining of the stomach?

In the 70's I spent 1 day a week as part of my Uni course working in a slaughterhouse near Brighton.After stunning and bleeding, the cattle were opened and the contents removed.The stomachs or tripes were stored in large containers for later collection and treatment. They were a black/dark green colour due to grass staining.Later some form of bleaching took place to give the tripes the usual white colour.I was told that the French would eat the tripe unbleached.My Gran would eat tripe and homemade chunky chips a few times a week.I will try most things but I would sew my lips shut to stop a piece passing into my mouth.Any other type of offal,yes,tripe no !

My parents (Lancashire born and bred of course!) thought of tripe as quite the delicacy. As a kid they tried to foist it on me, with zero success.
I've always figured there's something really wrong with eating such things as cow's stomach and chicken gizzards.

But my Mexican neighbors consume tripe ("Menudo") with gusto.

Jeremy Corbyn has used his Christmas message to call for an end to rough sleeping.

He has obviously forgotten about Diane Abbott.

The residents of Florence do a really nice tripe dish. Delicious and yummy.
My maternal grandad in Worksop used to eat the stuff just as it came from the butchers all white and raw (it had been blanched by the butcher) with pepper and vinegar. I could just about manage some to please him but I really drew the line at cooked udder. That - I can assure you - is THE most disgusting thing to put on a plate in front of an any age let alone an impressionable 12 year old. Chitterlings, trotters, sweetbreads I've had and enjoyed the lot.

Tripe, as a food, is a joke, hence I will not be reporting these posts about tripe as off topic in the joke thread. (Personal experience: Manudo sucks, but I know a lot of folks in Texas of Mexican ancestry who swear by it, both as a soup and as a hangover cure).

I've had it in a Mexican soup. I thought at first somebody had left a dirty sponge in it.
