Summer Brawn

I never heard of brawn until now. So I wiki'd this. Brawn, also known as head cheese, is a meat jelly dish made traditionally from parts of a pig or calf's head. The eyes, brains and ears are sometimes removed (thankfully). It is flavored with all sorts of yummy things. It looks truly awful, but maybe won't taste as bad. Hey, I've devoured pig's ears, cow tongue and pig's heart. What's a little natural animal gelatine? Perhaps with the interest in head to tail eating, meat jelly might be the new thing? Move over macarons.

This recipe sounds a bit more palatable then the traditional method. It sort of looks like corned beef that you can get in a can. Mmm...corned beef scrambled eggs.
