Spiced Beef Tongue
------------------
   3 lb Beef tongue
   1 qt Water
   1    Lemon; sliced
   1 t  Salt

Wash tongue thoroughly and place in a deep kettle with water. Add lemon
slices and salt. Cover tightly and cook over low heat for 3 to 4 hours or
until tender. Remover from heat. When just cool enough to handle, cut away
roots and remove skin and any excess connective tissue. (Plunging tongue
into cold water after cooking helps loosen skin.) If tongue is to be served
cold, it will be juicier if cooled in the liquid in which it was cooked.
Serves 6.
