What is Offal?

Its definition can change from country to country, and region to region, but I think of offal generally as any parts of an animal left over once the standard muscle (e.g., steak, loin) and bone (e.g., chops, ribs) cuts are removed.  Parts like feet, heart, intestine, kidney, liver, and stomach are all generally considered offal.

(I’m not sure if blood is considered offal, but it’s in the same neighborhood.)
