A German who doesn't like something in the cabbage family?  :o

The world is surely coming to an end. ...  ;D

 ;)


Yup. Hope you're prepared for it. Maybe stock up on some provisions? Canned red and white cabbage for example? ;) ;D

Did I already mention that I don't like beer? :laugh:

Blood Pudding!
Yes, the main ingredient is blood.



To be honest, it's actually pretty tasty, lol!

I can't think of anything 'disgusting' that I've eaten.  I've eaten things I didn't like, but that's not disgusting.

I consider myself a fairly adventurous eater.  I love a smoked tongue every now and then, and sweetbreads (thymus gland) is a favorite.  However........

Andouillette.  I had this in France about 20 years ago.  I must have confused it with andouille, which is very different.  Andouillette is essentially pork intestines.  I believe the American equivalent is chitterlings or chitlins.  Truly disgusting.

BTW, I love broccoli in all preparations.  And I love brussel sprouts, particularly when they're sliced thinly and seared on high heat until charred.  However, use the stove fan, because it does smell up the house!  

However, I dislike most other forms of cabbage intensely.  Go figure.

David, since you also asked for our least favorite food, here it is.  I know it's weird, but I DETEST mint in any food.  I find it overly strong and astringent.   It's tough because I like lamb, which is often contaminated with some kind of minty abomination.   I find I have to ask in restaurants about mint and tell them I'm "allergic".  I once had some Vietnamese beef thing that was studded with mint and, even though I tried to pick out the offending green stuff, I had to send it back.  YUK.  

Of course, in these times, every dessert sports a mint garnish that I humbly ask my dining companion to kindly remove from my plate so I don't have to touch it.  

Furthermore, I have fortunately discovered a wintergreen toothpaste that has no mint whatsoever.  Heaven.

worst food I ever ate intentionally was kimchee - fermented cabbage Korean style.  Liver and kidneys come in a very close second.

I hope that's some sort of stuffing in there, and not the original, er, contents. ...

Reminds me of that rural Pennsylvania German delicacy pig stomach. (I think that may be what Jed Clampett called hog maw.) Pig stomach is generally stuffed with diced potatoes and sausage, and the whole thing is roasted. The stuffing isn't bad. I could never get my grandmother to add diced celery to the mixture, however.

I love shopping at the Oriental markets, but there's one meat case that I have to tiptoe past with my eyes averted. I did the same with a couple of the posts here!! By the way, friend Paul, wintergreen IS a form of MINT!

May 2019 be better for us all.
