Rocky Mountain Oysters

They are also known as Prairie Oysters, Montana Tender Groins, Cowboy Caviar, Swinging Beef, and Calf Fries – are true Western delicacies. They are that part of the bull that is removed in his youth so that he may thereby be more tractable, grow meatier, and behave less masculine.  When the calves are branded, the testicles are cut off and thrown in a bucket of water.  They are then peeled, washed, rolled in flour and pepper, and fried in a pan.
