  1. throat sweetbread

    Throat sweetbread is a culinary term that refers to a specific part of an animal's organ, particularly from calves or lambs. It pertains to the gland located in the throat, which is commonly known as the thymus gland. Sweetbreads are considered a delicacy in many cuisines around the world and are often sautéed, braised, or grilled. Despite the name, they are not a type of bread and have nothing to do with sweetness. The term 'sweetbread' is thought to have been derived from the old English terms 'swete' meaning pleasing to taste and 'bread' meaning flesh.
