I pound honeycomb tripe
Cut the tripe in pieces suitable for serving, and simmer twenty minutes in water to cover. Drain, season, dip in crumbs, then in drippings and in crumbs again, and cook in a well-oiled broiler five minutes, cooking the smooth side of the tripe first for three minutes. Place on a hot platter, rough side up; season, spread sparingly with butter and place in the oven to become very hot.
Cut the pickled tripe in suitable pieces for serving, wash it and simmer gently for twenty minutes in water to cover. Drain, wipe dry, sprinkle with salt and pepper, brush over with melted butter or drippings, dip in batter and fry in fat hot enough to brown a piece of bread in three minutes. Serve with Chili sauce, or piccalilli or chow-chow.
