Bob do you mean Tongue?

If so my mum used to boil the tongue in salted water and then put it between 2 wooden boards and place on top of the topp one heavy weights to press all the liquid out. I think she used to leave it overnight in the meat safe(We didn't have a fridge then) Then it was fit for eating.
If this seems strange go onto the cooking forum as I am sure someone will help with first hand experience. I am remembering back 50-60 years and I might have missed something important.

Fresh tongue: place in large

Fresh tongue: place in large pot with enough water to cover tongue, add seasonings to taste. I use garlic and onion. Boil for 3 1/2 hours replacing water as it boils off, turn tongue every 1/2 hour. Remove tongue from pot and cut away unwanted fat.

Tongue Comments

Thanks for your comments. I cooked it today, then cut it up into bite size pieces and made gravy with some of to juice. My Dad says it was really good. Glad he liked it but I was not impressed.

It's something you either

It's something you either have a taste for or not. I prefer pickled beef tongue myself, but I have never mastered the art of pickling.

I just cooked up a fresh tongue. It was a small one, but the best one I have had in a while. I used BBQ sauce to season it.
