My neighbor cooks them and like "Bigabyte" says they have to be soaked and rinsed many times before you "boil the pi$$ out of them"' as my neighbor puts it.
They have a strong overpowering odor when cooking.
Just from that odor I do not think I could bring myself to taste them. I am sure we eat them in hot dogs and other sausage type products from the grocery store.
Maybe there are better ways to prepare them where the odor might be less offensive...
