Delicacy of the Wild West Lives on

The annual fry is nicknamed the "testicle festival."
International Comstock Mountain Oyster Fry in Virginia City, Nev., where the main ingredient is testicles of gelded lambs and calves.
A Feast of ‘Oysters’
The cooking of testicles -- also known as "calf fries" or "lamb fries" -- is a living tradition on ranches throughout rural Nevada and the mountain West down through Central Texas.
Here, they are served as tacos.
