Typically you’ll find recipes for “Rocky Mountain Oysters” that are simply fried. We’ve taken this often over looked delicacy and made a delicious spread with it. Don’t let the main ingredient scare you off, you’ll be glad you were adventurous once you finally taste to finished product!


  • 1 pound Bull Testicles (Jewels or "oysters")
  • 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1/2 cup Onion - finely chopped
  • 1 medium Granny Smith Apple (peeled and chopped)
  • 1 clove Garlic 
  • 3 Eggs hard boiled
  • 1 cup WOP Pastured Poultry Bone Broth
  • 3/4 cup Butter
  • 1/2 cup Pistachios - shelled
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg - grated
  • 1/4 tsp Clove - ground
  • 2 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Cayenne
  • 2 TBL Sherry Wine
  • 2 TB Fresh Lemon Juice


Use a sharp knife to split each “oyster” in half. Be sure to clean the tough outer membrane from each jewel. Pat each “oyster” dry then dredge in flour seasoned with salt and pepper. Shake off excess and fry in oil until golden brown (don’t over crowd the pan. Cook in two or three batches if needed). Once fried and golden brown set on a paper towels to drain.

Puree the fries along with the remaining ingredients until well blended and smooth.

Transfer to a non-reactive container and allow to chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours to help flavors develop. Bring back to room temp before serving.

Can be kept in the fridge for us to 4 days.

Serve with crispy bread and fresh chopped herbs as a garnish.
