Ah tendon, you gelatinous, collagenic mystery/one of Julie's favorite weird cuts - deep fried, tendon is somewhere in between cracklins'/chicharrĂ³nes, popcorn shrimp, and calamari. Enjoy!
  1. Mix flours together with salt.
  2. Heat up oil in a small pot (oil should be about a cm deep) on the stove, over medium heat.
  3. Dip tendons in the flour mixture, coat well.
  4. When oil is hot (a drop of flicked water sizzles), drop a handful of tendons in pot (don't overcrowd).
  5. Cook for about 5-8 minutes, until tendons have browned nicely.
  6. Spoon out onto paper towel (hit with more salt at this point if desired).
  7. When finished frying, serve tendons with coconut aminos, scallions, lemon wedges, and/or parsley garnish (could also eat with ketchup, mustard...whatever floats your boat ;)
