Your mum must have been a good singer if you ate this.
Suppose you would need to be as ancient as us to remember.

Whale meat - completely inedible
The benefits of eating fish were widely proclaimed, but again it was very scarce. Fishing was a dangerous occupation in mine-laden waters and the pier was a prohibited area, so fresh fish was a novelty and a luxury.
The ultimate came, however, when the government hit on the bright idea of combining fish and meat and urged us to eat whale meat. Where, or how, the whales were caught and brought to England I do not know. There must be a limit to how much whale one ship can carry, and one whale alone would provide a lot of whale steaks, but newspapers and the wireless told us how to prepare and cook the stuff, and sure enough, in due course, it appeared in the shops. From there, inevitably, it found its way onto our table.
It had been soaked overnight, steam-cooked, and soaked again, then blanketed with a sauce, but still it tasted exactly what it sounds like - tough meat with a distinctly fishy flavour, ugh. Just this once the next-door's cat ate it!
Yes, we laugh about it all now, yet after all these years I still cannot bear to see good food wasted or thrown away - but I think I could make an exception with whale meat.

Bon Appetite
William.
