Ghouls get to celebrate, too, you know; and for a holiday treat, they especially enjoy eyes.   Centuries ago, ghouls settled for the less healthy, haphazardly collected eye sockets; but nowadays, ghouls struggle to pay more attention to their celebratory food.   While tasty eye sockets are certainly desirable, it has been proven that combined with eyes they offer considerably more, good ghoul nutrition per serving than seen in socket-heavy offerings.  As a result, ghouls’ palates and health concerns have evolved, demanding fresher product and eschewing the bland, brown-eyed, days-old offerings.

For a maggot-free presentation, make sure you acquire all eyes the day of the celebration and serve in pairs to avoid unnecessary waste. Note: no pirates or Cyclops please. 

Although tempting to do-it- yourself, only rely on an experienced, cadaver-approved forager to collect eyes.  They spend millennia training to spot redness, jaundice and sties—you don’t want any of your little ghouls to have upset tummies do you?    A properly harvested orb socket will be an irregular oval to rounded shape with jagged edges; and the eyes will have faded irises, pronounced pupils and lens and not totally rounded.   Farm-raised eyes are strictly spherical with no irregularities and bright irises.   One would think that a colorful iris would guarantee freshness; unfortunately, it’s because they are factory-dyed prior to distribution.

With the holiday fast approaching, have your ghoul friends over and offer these assorted eyes and sockets.   You’ll be sure to please. The ghouls will be rattling on forever about your exceptional good taste… in dining.

Unwilling or unable to access to fresh corpses, try this human-approved vegetarian version instead.

Thank you-hope you give them a try.
wow, i'm so impressed! They look so real that if I didn't know what they were made of I wouldn't eat one!
Thank you. I am really pleased they had this effect on you. My boyfriend wanted me to add greens to them to rest on so, in his words,"would look more like food."
So creepy!
...and, yet, so healthy!
I like the contradiction of "creepy" and "healthy."
Thanks--I really wanted to achieve that.
