One of our clients, Oz, from Fox and Hounds http://foxandhoundsfuntington.co.uk, was in training this morning and mentioned that they were serving lamb testicles at their restaurant this evening. We got to talking about the nutritional value of these delicacies and it turns out they are pretty good. Here is the breakdown he provided:
The nutrition data on testicles was a bit hard to track down (not surprisingly), but here’s what I found.
Serving Size: 100g (3.5oz)
I found some more data concerning a ram testicle, which had similar macronutrients to the beef and pig, but additionally listed the mineral components.
Testicles are promoted as an aphrodisiac because they are supposed to also contain testosterone. However, from what I read, you would have to eat them raw to get the benefit. Information on testosterone injections says that the serum has to be kept away from heat as this will break down the hormone.”
Here is a pick of them being prepared. I will ask Oz if he can provide a recipe if anyone want to give them a try.
If you fancy giving them a go, then head on down to the Fox and Hounds!
