With Gravy


Because who eats their Pork Brains without gravy? Take a close look at the label. If you can’t tell, the brains are pictured with scrambled eggs and a bit of parsley on the side, because we all know that presentation is everything. I found this little gem at Wood Bros. on South Eleventh Street (just in case anyone wants to pick some up for themselves-at $1.19, it’s a bargain!). I was drawn into the store by the poster board and magic marker sign out front advertising Amish butter and sundry other products, all of which were nice, but not as earth-shattering-tasty as I had hoped. Still, it was fun to see such “exotic” products in this long-standing neighborhood store.

Should you find yourself in need of neck bones in the near future, Wood Bros. is the place for you! But steer clear of anything labeled “Reduced for Quick Sale.”

I think my grandmother would eat brains and eggs. while I might try a bit of brains freshly prepares- the thought of canned brains scares me just a bit.

Mmmm, canned brains. Yeah, doesn't sound too safe, if you ask me. And while you would possibly eat freshly prepared brains, have you given it any thought as to what type of brains you would prefer? Cow, pig, squirrel? Which reminds me of an article I read recently...

And what is Amish butter? I saw that sign, too.

I envisioned that it was hand-churned with great care and love by God-fearing people. It tastes really creamy and fresh...perfect to go with hot blackberry cobbler.

Wow, I just gained a pound thinking about it.

You really should stop in and buy some. May even pick up a can or two of those pork brains, just to have on hand.
