Not easy to find these days, but it would be a shame not to offer a recipe for testicles.


  • parsley a bunch
  • juice of a lemon
  • olive oil
  • ram’s testicles, or fries 12
  • plain flour 1 tbsp
  • salt
  • pepper
  • isot biber
  • an egg, beaten


  • Chop the parsley fine and mix with lemon juice and a splash of oil.
  • Slice the testicles in half. Dust them in flour seasoned with a pinch of salt and a pinch of isot biber, dip into the beaten egg and brown in the hot oil.
  • Drizzle with the parsley sauce and serve.

The same method suits herring roes, which are more easily sourced.
