Nov 25, 2011: Placenta Spaghetti



I know it's Friday so a cute furry creature is properly called for, but I thought I would save all ye dwellars some time today, as you USAans will be recovering from the festivities and not have the energy to think up recipes. So, rather than post a picture of a cute furry human baby, I cut straight to the cooking and thought I would post this. (Also, it may help some of you to regurgitate some of the excesses, thus saving you from dieting.) And my apologies to any of you who have actually made dinner from your baby's placenta! No offence, but... YOU'RE EATING PART OF YOUR OWN BODY!

This recipe can be found here, along with Placenta Cocktail, Placenta Lasagne, Placenta Stew, Placenta Roast, and Placenta Sandwich. Here's a blog entry of a Placenta Party.

Or you can do what most animals do and just eat it, raw and warm, just after it comes out. Gives you something to do while the baby finds its feet.

Yes.. You know it's Friday.



But do you know what MONTH it is?!

This seems rather passive-aggressive.

Really? People do these things? Really?

When my friend's baby girl was born, the midwife held up the placenta to show us (hubby about passed out). She asked if they wanted to take it home. They politely declined. I wondered why someone would want to take it home.

I was surprised, actually. I thought it would be considered biohazard material.

I wonder what they put it in? A takeout container?

I did have one friend who was going through a "native" phase and had her baby at home, alone with hubby and daughter (and no midwife!!), in the backyard or something. They buried the placenta at the base of a tree.

She then had a nervous breakdown that lasted 3-4 years.

Thanks for the day off.

I wondered what I was going to post. I totally forgot it was Friday. Feels like Saturday to me.

It just made me want to vom.

I think eating your own boogers is definitely a gateway activity that can easily escalate (or is it spiral out of control?) to eating your placenta.

It's a goddamn slippery slope people.

GET YOUR FINGER OUT OF YOUR NOSE!

I think it's a great idea.
But I do need to point out that that's not spaghetti.

Rational brain: there's a lot of valuable nutrients in that.

Emotional brain:

Oh dang. Can someone in the know (or can) please amend the title from October to November for me?

And also to, you know, make the picture show up? I still don't know how to do that.


Undertoad  Saturday Nov 26 12:40 AM

this is done



sandypossum  Saturday Nov 26 03:06 AM

Thanks, UT!

You shouldn't have said anything. After UT's doctoring everyone would've just thought I was a raving loon.

Ages ago, I worked with a woman that had saved (frozen) her placenta for future dining pleasure. Don't know if she ever cooked it up, and I think I don't want to...




ZenGum  Monday Nov 28 01:37 AM

Actually, IIRC, placenta is chock full of stem cells, which if cryogenically frozen can be kept for potential theraputic use later in life. Seems a waste to eat it.
