    mayo and sour cream ARE awesome. amazing how men try and skull fuck you to get you to swallow jizz and THEY can't even taste a little mayo or sour cream out of fear they'll like it? closeted homosexuals are what they sound like to me.

    texture gets me too. don't like tapioca, don't like cottage cheese, NO raw oysters, hate

    As for my olive phobic aunt, the insanity continues. She is now part owner of a shop that sells traditional products, including olives. She has agreed to carry only sliced olives because she's totally ok with that. Still won't eat them but doesn't freak out. I am thinking it has to do with black olives reminding her of cockroaches, or something.

    A*O, lamb brains are delicious with a bit of lemon on top. Yummy stuff. Haven't tried other brains but those are crazy good. Also love tongue and cheek but will not eat eyes. That's where I draw the line.

    I forgot something I can't stand -- LIVER. I mean, if I had to eat it I would, but it tastes bitter and awful, and it certainly seems like a lot of people here feel the same way I do because Taco Bell doesn't offer "liver tacos", and McDonald's doesn't have "liver McNuggets", and I haven't seen it as one of the 50 toppings you can get on a Domino's pizza.

    I swear I've eaten just about everything. My dad used to use goose liver to thicken a particular soup he made. We would make our own headcheese - boil the pig's head on the stove, use the feet to make soup. I still make that soup and my husband loves it! We used to make fish head soup, my dad would suck the eyes out of the head - reminded me of tapioca pearls! LOL! We used to call tapioca pudding "fish eyes and glue". It made joining my husband's chinese family a lot easier - their shit is tame compared to what we eat. I've tried century eggs, but I'm not a big fan of them. I do eat them at family gatherings, just to be polite. Liver sausage on rye bread - yum! We used to have liver and onions once in awhile, but my mom would bread the liver, which was easier on us kids to eat. My dad used to hunt, so we'd have deer and moose. The best chili I ever had I made from moose meat. I'm a big proponent of "I'll try anything once". If people have been eating it for centuries and it hasn't killed them, then it's not going to kill me to try it.

    I would have starved to death in that house. Oh-em-gee. I have way too many food consistency/texture issues plus mental blocks about certain foods.

    a woman after my own heart! i too will try anything once. i draw the line at insects though. just can't. even though theoretically i'm curious as to what they taste like, i hate bugs and they freak me out so i can't imagine putting them into my mouth. it's not logical, since i've already put living things into my mouth like the parasitic crab that lives in sea urchins in chile, or casu marzu (though i picked out the squirming live maggots and ate just the cheese and maggot poo part), but i draw the line at bugs.

    I love liver and always have, even as a kid. Love haggis, black pudding, white pudding, and game meats. But this?

    i've already put living things into my mouth like the parasitic crab that lives in sea urchins in chile, or casu marzu (though i picked out the squirming live maggots and ate just the cheese and maggot poo part)



    And I don't think I could handle something like balut or century eggs or anything of the sort.

    I don't even consider that I have food issues, beyond liking food too damn much. I'll try some shit too. Deer and moose are a'okay by me. But that other stuff....headcheese...fish eyeballs!?

    No thanks.

    I think it depends largely on the food you ate in childhood. My mother was a child of the Depression/WW2 and they didn't have the luxury of being picky eaters. They ate what was cheap and available. She was lucky to live in the country with lots of farming friends around who provided things that were rationed elsewhere, eggs, butter, fresh meat and produce, etc. They grew veggies in the back yard and kept a pig there too. It wasn't a pet, it was food and they used all of it except the squeak.

    So she gave my sis and me the foods she grew up with, liver, kidney, tripe, heart, home grown veggies. She made delicious stews from cheap cuts of meat like brisket, ox tail, etc and made brawn (head cheese?). It all tasted great but the secret was how you cooked it. Old wartime habits died hard so we were expected to eat what was on our plate, no arguments. Like everyone I had likes and dislikes but don't recall gagging and retching at the sight of even the stuff I didn't care for, I still ate it because there wasn't an alternative. I lived to tell the tale and will now eat pretty much anything and everything if necessary, even brains and oysters although I don't particularly like them. My mother certainly wasn't one of those slaves who cook different meals for different kids to accommodate their pickiness.

    And not coincidentally IMO, food allergies like killer nuts or onions, garlic, gluten (insert random foodstuff ) were practically unheard of. Throughout my entire school life I NEVER knew anyone who might die if they sniffed a peanut.

    and do you eat it?

    I've had chitlins/chitterlings. And pigs feet. The french do them beautifully. And of course I'd eat squirrel brains (those must be small though! How many squirrels do you have to kill to get enough to make a dish?). I've had veal brains and love them, can't that different.

    I'm just remembering another food that I tried - although I didn't know what it was until I ate half of it. It was a soup called Mondongo. Nobody in my extended family bothered to say a word about what was in it although they did rhapsodize about how great it was before it was served.

    I remember that instead of meat, there was this gelatinous honeycomb stuff in there. And something that looked like little spinal cords with meat on them. It turns out that the gelatinous stuff was cow stomach. And the spinal-looking stuff was pig's feet. The soup, which has a tomatoey base, didn't taste too bad at all, but if you have a problem with textures, or what you are eating in general, this is not the soup for you.

    About 4 years ago, I tried cow's tongue for the first time. In principle, it sounded like something really weird to eat, but the flavor of the meat seemed as good as any cut of steak ,and it was as soft as filet mignon. But I was very weirded out by the way it was served. They cut the tongue in cross sections and you could still see like the taste buds on the perimeter of the slices.
