What did you hate?

When you were a kid, what did you hate having to eat? And do you like it now?

For me, Brussels sprouts. I ate them once when I was about 6, and refused to touch another. But they became an “it” food a year or two ago, so I had to at least try.

The reason I didn’t like them, I’ve decided, is because Brussels sprouts have an adult taste. Kids don’t like that slightly bitter, umami taste and the sprouts’ mouth feel.

I’m making Brussels sprouts with bleu cheese and chestnuts tonight. YUM!

Ohhhhh, Lima beans! I forgot about those! Never ever in a million years (I’ll probably only live ‘til I’m 65, so I guess I’m safe!) will I eat another Lima bean, even if it’s to save my life! Garbanzos have their uses (hummus, mainly), but I don’t really like them whole. Nasty mouthfeel.

I don't care for limas and garbanzos either. Never have. For me it's a texture issue. I like hummus.

As a child, butternut squash made me gag. I just could not get it down. These days, I love it. It's the only winter squash I buy.

I still don't like rhubarb.

Marmite and Bovril. At school, they used to spread the stuff on fried bread, and it made me puke, and they still made me eat it. I promised myself I would learn to cook, and I started to cook at an early age....which has never stopped, because I promised myself that I would always cook good food, both for me and for friends who came to dinner at my house, and it's been the same ever since then.

Lima beans, liver. Those were probably the 2 things that I just couldn't (and still can't) stomach. I've always been fairly nonselective in my eating, enjoying foods that most of the kids I grew up with wouldn't even touch.

I hated asparagus as a kid, but in our house, it was from a can, and my mom cooked everything to death.

The first time I had asparagus cooked by a fine dining chef, it was an epiphany. Now, I love it.

How well I remember my mom's cooking... She thought that a pork chop had to be cooked to hammer density...

My parents still cook pork chops in sauerkraut for New Years day to the point of shoe leather. Tradition.
