Tongues are big business in the meat trade - Yahoo! News: "Jay Simpson, global sales manager for commodity and trading at the No. 3 U.S. poultry company Perdue Farms, said his company's paws go to China and there is enough profit to make it worthwhile.
Without China, the paws would likely go to rendering companies to be processed into pet food or animal feed.
'It is my understanding they are used in sauces,' said Simpson of Chinese market. 'We have three or four plants that produce them. If we didn't harvest them they would go into rendering.'"
This would go great with my macademia nuts from hawaii.
