    My wife works with a couple of prominant chefs and they came across a recipe that calls for 2 pounds of duck tongues...

    Has anyone ever used them for cooking purposes or ever attempted to remove a duck tongue?

    I was volunteered to provide them and am sitting here wondering how many dang tongues it would take to make 2 pounds?

    If anybody in the Conway area would like to donate their harvested duck tongues to amuse these guys, I will be accepting them in the near future. Shoot me a message or a text and I can meet you in town somewhere, I live on the West side of town and work on the East side, so anywhere in between would be greatly appreciated by the city slicker chefs.

    I tried to explain the the guy that it was a pretty weird request and asked him if he had been boozing. All I could think would be to take a hammer and bust their head from the side and a pair of needle nose pliers to yank it out?

    Forget about how many would make two pounds or how hard it would be to get out.

    WHO eats duck tongues??? :eating:

    I would think a spoonie tongue would get you to two pounds a little quicker.

    Good luck with that. Maybe those chefs should just get two pounds of tongues here for $35 plus shipping.

    Open mouth, grab with fingers, yank. We use to put them in peoples shell boxes, duck calls, gloves, etc. Slow days can be alot of fun at times, that is back when I used to get out of bed for slow days.

    I did some research and found the same thing. I sent him the link and told him that would be a much better idea. Might start selling them myself if you can get 17.50/lb for them.

    I read about the company and they say you make your order and the birds are "harvested" upon your order to be ". So if you order 5 pounds of tongues during a slow time at the duck farm, what the heck are they going to do with the 100's of ducks they have running around without tongues?
