Tongue, Sweet and Sour I (M, TNT)
Source: Self
Serves: 12

1 pickled tongue, boiled until soft

2 onions, peeled and sliced
1 tablespoon oil
1 large apple, peeled and diced
1 cup raisins
1-1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
Salt and pepper to taste
1 pint water
10 ginger snaps

Brown onions in oil, add remaining ingredients, and bring to boil. Place layers of tongue and sauce in dish.

Heat through gently in oven to serve.

Poster's Notes:
1) We did this in a pressure cooker, but it can be done in a regular pot. Peel while hot, then cool and refrigerate several hours until firm. Slice thinly.
2) Golden syrup is a kitchen staple in South Africa. It's made from cane sugar and has a wonderful distinctive taste. It can be bought in the USA at specialty stores. Williams-Sonoma sometimes carries it. It's great in tzimmes too, and on butternut (slice butternut, sprinkle with cinnamon and golden syrup, bake and enjoy).
3) I have never done this, but it seems that the sauce would be good for another purpose e.g. on chicken or brisket. That's for those who cannot bear the thought of eating tongue!
