Quick Reference

A euphemistic term referring to an animal's embarrassing internal organs, and particularly its testicles, as prepared for eating—typically by frying. It is applied mainly to the testicles of young sheep—‘lamb's fries’. The French euphemize edible testicles as rognons blancs, literally ‘white kidneys’. See also prairie oyster.
