Morning Market - Guess What!

Here are some of the unique things we saw in the morning market. Guess what they are. If you know your anatomy, you should do well. :)

Please leave a comment and guess what the following 10 things are. (Click pictures to enlarge.)

Stephen and Evelyn,
Very glad you are keeping us informed. Thank you very much! We are praying.

Whew!! I am glad I have not had breakfast yet.
1. pig's feet--but don't give me too many points for that because they sell those in Georgia!
2. entrails (I suppose that is the polite word for them).
3. squid
4. more squid?
5. I don't even want to know.
6. in polite company, we call those "sausage casings" :)
7. heart
8. a pig's head
9. roosters--but why is one black? Is it just a different kind of rooster?
10. the tongue of "something".

We are all praying for you both, thank you for keeping us updated. Here goes:

1. pig tails, pig feet, and pig skin
2. intestines to be used for sausage casings
3. fish and squid
4. baby squid?
5. liver (pig and beef)
6. tripe (cow stomach)
7. heart (beef)
8. skin from a hog head
9. chickens
10. beef tongue? (but the head looks more like a pig, so it could be pig tongue)

1. I wasn't sure until I saw the above comment but I knew it was from a pig.
2. Intestines
3. Fish and squid
4. More squid (I've never tried squid but I have had octopus)
5. It resembles giant chunks of chicken liver but I perhaps it is fat...or maybe remodeled brain?
6. Not sure but it looks like...what does it look like?
7. Heart
8. Pig's face
9. Chicken

That is too nasty for my delicate constitution to think about. I shall refrain from further inquiry into the matter.

Here are the answers. For those whose delicate constitution cannot handle it, don't read the answers. All of the commenters got most of the answers right.

1. Pig tails, pig feet, pig skin
2. Pig intestines, but they eat it as a dish
3. Fish and squid
4. More squid
5. Chunks of duck blood. They collect the blood during butchering, let it sit until it coagulates, slice it up, and sell it. They do it with other animal blood, too.
6. Various intestines and stomachs. Again, they don't use it just for sausage casings, they turn it into stir fry, soup, etc.
7. Heart
8. Pig face
9. Freshly butchered chickens, that is a black-skinned chicken. It still is chicken!
10. Pig tongue

If you wonder if people actually eat them, ask Evelyn's family for full details of how they are usually cooked. :)

Stephen and Evelyn,

I am not even going to enlarge these pictures! Due to nausea that keeps coming back, I think I would loose whatever is in my stomach at the moment!!!! :) Anyway, thanks for sharing, I think!!!
