Bravo, Chief! We do need to think of others' feelings here. I too have tasted swampwater, and much prefer KFC coleslaw.

BTW, when I was a bartender, we made a very popular drink that we served in a Mason jar, called Swampwater. I'll have to look up the recipe. It was really tasty!

I can't say that I have ever done so. Nor do I have a hankering to indulge myself in that practice. I have to assume it is an acquired taste.

Thank you Chief for your thoughtful reply to SLB. Although I am not one of those who have tasted this somewhat delectable drink, I am going to leave the practice to those who enjoy it.

I've had some mighty tasty things on outings into the swamp. Cat tail tubers, fiddle head fern, cabbage palm hearts, elderberry flowers, crawfish, Alligator snapping turtle and frog legs to mention a few. Even boiled or treated swamp water is mighty fine if you're thirsty. You might even get lucky and run across an Artesian Spring.

Now fiddlehead ferns I can go for. Although the one I have tasted are from the woods along a stream that ran in back of the farm. We collected them every spring.

Our cypress swamps in the Everglades region tent to butt up against dry hardwood hammocks or dry pine lands.

It has been ages since I've had cat tail tubers. It seems to me we collected them in the spring...lots of cat tails near the farm. Hmmmm...where is my Stalking the Wild Asparagus...oh, that's right, I have two copies--one at the farm, and one at home! Should be able to find one of them before next spring. And fiddleheads, well, those are s/thing we forage every spring. A bit fiddly (ha-ha) to clean, but oh so good.

I wonder if Swamp Water is similar in taste to Earth Worms?

Haven't had KFC in years but here's a site for those interested might find interesting.

Kentucky Fried Chicken :: Index

It's kind of a dead site but it does answer many questions about the Colonel.








I hope posting this link to another forum isn't against any rules.

I looked and did a search for rules but came up empty.
