    Default The most vile food

    My doc says I need to eat more liver.

    48 years ago, I tried it. Never again. Seriously, itís vile.

    She also recommended something called natto. Super healthy for old men.

    Liver has competition as the worst food ever. Up there with cheese curds.

    The taste is ok but the presentation is way disturbing.

    Whatís your ďneverĒ food?

    Mayonnaise, and most cheese as a close second.
    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    Fun Christmas trick. Fill a mayonnaise jar with vanilla pudding.

    Eat it with a spoon in front of family and friends.

    Casu Martzu cheese from Sardinia has never tempted me- Google it for the full horror.
    Escargots are no problem for me.

    Barry Humphries (Dame Edna Everidge) used to mime puking into a sick bag on an airliner if it got a bit bumpy.
    He would then craftily tip a bit of coleslaw into the bag, and loudly ask the stewardess for a spoon.

    I like liver, fried with onions, mashed tatties and gravy. I also enjoy other offal.
    I have never fancied welks, too chewy, and milk puddings or custard trigger a gag reflex.

    Mountain oysters hold little appeal, and the marine variety even less.

    take chicken liver, cut it in half
    put some onion on the frying pan, fry until it gets golden
    add liver, fry on medium fire
    spice it up with solt and rosemary - liver likes to be a bit salty, it will also get slightly drier
    fry until it's medium or well done, check what you like better


    If it's medium, eat hot. If it's well done, eat hot or cool it and put on bread. If it reminds shoe polish or grout, double the salt and rosemary on next attempt.

    Wow. An outlawed cheese. And the little buggers can survive the stomach.

    I’ve got lots of grass hoppers at the place. I’d be willing to try but I understand there is prep involved. Remove the head? Seems like trouble.

    Apple butter made me sick for some reason as a kid. Can’t stand even a hint of its smell to this day. Not even sure what it is, don’t care.

    Cilantro

    chicken livers are delectable

    oysters are fab.

    I have no use for squid

    almost no use for any hot peppers.

    I like to taste the food, not burn my mouth with something designed specifically to cover the fact that the food has gone bad.

    utterly fail to understand the concept behind kimchee.

    It's interesting how many of the foods some folks identify as disgusting that I like. Very spicy food, kimchi, soft-boiled eggs, squid (fried), oysters . .

    Well, de gustibus non disputandum, dude. Balut - well, no, thanks.

    Ever wonder why one person loves to eat what another can't stand?

    I wonder if the experience is anything close to similar. What makes it different?

    My Mother-in-law could 'kill' any food item there was - she cooked liver so done, that I could have done 50 miles on it as a boot sole.

    My mother had a knack for cooking it so it remained moist and tender. My younger brother-in-law, at a wedding dinner, sent his steak back
    seven times to be cooked further, and even had it 'butterflyed' to cook it more (dried out shoe leather, by the time it was acceptable to him)

    of course I love creamed eggs on good toasted sourdough bread.

    Rich, I'm with you on the lima beans... cardboard would taste better. But we part ways re Brussel sprouts and asparagus. I can eat a ton of each. My wife fixes sprouts with onions and a vinaigrette that are simply divine. Grilled asparagus is one of the world's best eats.

    The biggest problem with chicken liver is that the cats want it too, in fact they don't wan to leave any for me.
