Thats what I was thinking too. I have tried many things I thought I never would but I just can't seem to get past this one.

Well, Jim. This little fella looks too much like a "pet." And as Chefellas said, I'd be hard put to eat the little guy.

This also reminds me of the time I prepared a rabbit dish for Buck. Now, I like rabbit and he had never, to my knowledge, had rabbit. I didn't tell him what he was eating and he enjoyed it until he asked me what it "really" was. He'd picked up on some subtle texture. I told him. Had to.

His response, "Oh, no, Thumper!"

He hasn't had rabbit since then. That was over 25 years ago. Oh, well!

CajunCook, you just need to find one that doesn't drink so much red wine or smoke!

Jim...
I've passed on the Nutria a couple of times myself. However I have had beaver twice. It was not bad, but I want be setting traps anytime soon. I wonder if the Nutria would be about the samer as the beaver. Tell ya what...Go ahead and chow down on some Nutria and report back here....OK?

Have Fun!

I would never eat organs, squid, octopus, anything moving on my plate and of course not to mention the gourmet from south east asia (snakes, fogs, bugs, etc)

Chicory, blech! I hate it!
Also: All kinds of souflé stuff with whipped eggwhite (I don't know if that's a word, but only the white part of an egg and whipped till it's thick and stuff, that's just gross)

Liver and bowels...
I once smelled baked/deep fried bowels, I had really had to puke...Puking because of a smell...that says enough, righto?
