Boiled Neat's Tongue (i.e. Beef Tongue)

This is often served as one of the dishes for a smorgasbord. Slices of cold tongue also make delicious sandwiches.

1 beef tongue
1 stalk celery
1 bay leaf
3 slices lemon
1 onion
6 whole peppercorns
1 carrot

Place all ingredients in large kettle and add enough cold water to cover tongue. Bring to boil.

Simmer for about 1½ to 2 hours, depending on size of tongue. Remove skin while still hot. Refrigerate. Slice, serve cold.
