Forget those candy conversation hearts. This Valentine's Day, send your loved one some real heart. There are tons of options, even for the vegetarians.
If you’ve had more than a couple hamburgers in your life, chances are you’ve probably eaten some heart.
Deborah Krassner writes in Good Meat that while beef hearts might seem like offal, they’re not classified as such by the United States Department of Agriculture and consequently they’re often used in making lean, economical burgers.
Of course, you can also braise, roast, confit, or eat beef heart raw.
