Top Review by RogerOH

Let me start out by saying I have never had heart before, so I have no bench mark to go from. I found the recipe very quick and easy to make. The heart turned out tender. It had a very slight sour flavor, I believe that came from the vinegar, that I did not really care for. I will admit the more I ate it did grow on me.
