An entire case of twenty one year old U.S. Navy canned "C" rations. They were still good, even the pork in gravy and canned water.

I have said it before....I was raised eating a number of critters most folks would say is odd. Eel, beef tongue ( for that matter I have eaten deer, bear, and pig tongue), chitlins, pig's feet, chicken feet, well the list is long. I reckon odd is in the mind of the diner.

I made beer braised beef in the crock pot once - and only once! It didn't taste too bad, but the smell - well, that's another story. Took two weeks to get the smell out of the house. NEVER again.

Porcupine, it was really, really delicious. Cook it like pork - it's fatty and could have trichina. Don't eat the liver if the porcupine has been eating pine or other evergreens.

When I was young I had a mate who was a Gypsy as a treat his Mum would coat a hedgehog in clay and put it in a fire.The clay goes rock hard so when you pull it off it takes the quills out.

We had homemade escargot once.

Talk about smelly kitchens!!!! My ex decided we'd go crab hunting one night. There was some kind of crab that would come out at night onto the roads down around Homestead, city right before you go into Florida Keys, and he wanted some of those crabs he'd had when he was a kid in Cuba. Off we went and came home with a bunch of crabs. Well, he didn't cook and I didn't know the first thing about cooking crabs (I was about 20) except that you steamed or boiled them so we decided to boil them. OMG!!! the smell, it was nauseating. He was able to eat them, I don't know how he got it down with that odor permeating the house. I picked the rest of them, there was NO WAY I was eating that, froze the meat, and he finished it later on. There was nothing wrong with them. We found out later by asking an older Cuban woman about them, that you always cook them outside because of the smell. It took weeks for the house to smell normal again and even though it was summertime we'd open the windows and turn on the fan when we were home. I couldn't even look at any kind of crab for months and months afterward.
