Placenta is an organ meat expelled soon after a birth. Placenta has a springy texture similar to the heart, but more sponge-like.

Whilst Human placenta has a taste akin to a mild liver, many beef recipes work well with human placenta. A human placenta typically weighs 1/6 of the baby's weight.

To prepare placenta, cut the membranes away with a sharp knife. Wash if desired. Treat the placenta as you would any other meat.

Warning[edit]

Uncooked human placenta can transmit diseases.
