A Big Surprise: Crispy Clangers Recipe

There’s never a delicate way to put this, but there’s an ingredient out there that’s involved in Texas folklore that, well, can be used to prove a man’s, uhh, manhood. Often called Rocky Mountain Oysters or Prairie Oysters, there are many ways these ovoid morsels get prepared for consumption. Leave it to a woman, Jennifer […]
