Well, I read bits and pieces of this thread (no way I could read all 68 pages ), and I find it surprising some of the things that people who frequent a cooking forum won't eat (Beets? Really?). There are things I don't care for, but very few that I won't eat if they are put in front of me.

I really don't much like:

Okra (slimy and eeewww)
Eggplant (I seem to have overactive bitter taste buds - all I taste is bitter)
Coffee (see eggplant) (it can actually give me nausea)
Lima beans (hard, dry, ick!)
Liver and most organ meat (Awful texture and flavor)
Any raw animal flesh, including fish (it's a texture thing again)

I have eaten or drunk all of the above at one time or another (that's how I know I don't like it ). I've had things like sheep's tongue souse, which is okay and I can eat it, but I'd rather have chicken and conch souse. Frog's legs are quite tasty.

I do not like the sushi and the raw oysters. Sushi has the terrible taste and the raw oysters feel like the swallowing of a large amount of snot.

It's funny how an experience can change one's eating habits. I ate oyster stew as a child. It was up there in the flavor department, along with New England clam chowder. I loved them both. And then one day, I bit into an oyster, and saw this green sludge inside. I haven't been able to eat oysters ever since, and that was 45 years back, or so. And yet, I have no issues with organ meats, head cheese, and many other foods that people find objectionable. All I can say is that sometimes, how we react to things, just makes no sense.

Fried spiders, anyone? They're eaten with abandon in parts of Cambodia. Or maybe you'd prefer that Filipino delicacy, balut.

Okra

Liver

I had a sweetmeat appetizer at a fine dining restaurant and loved it. The sauce was amazing.

That is exactly how I feel about raw oysters! LOL I have tasted sushi and it's OK, but I don't understand what the big fuss it all about. It is not something I would go out of my way to get, but if it is available to me again, somewhere else, I would try it to see if maybe I just didn't like the way they made it at the first place I tried it. If I try two places and still don't like it, then I'm done.

I had something, I think it was Oysters Rockefeller that was OK because I think the oysters were cooked. And my mother used to put chopped up oysters in her stuffing for Thanksgiving. I ate it but didn't notice the oysters.

The fried spiders are classified with non-food items that I will not try. I don't care if they eat it in Cambodia. I'm in the US and I'm not eating them.

Your tastes change from time to time, that's why you should try something once in a while, that you didn't care for before. When I make pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, I can eat the pumpkin straight from the can, but once I mix it with the sugar and spices I don't like it, because I don't like sweets.

There are those foods to which one has an aversion, and then there are those foods for which one just doesn't get too jazzed about. I don't dislike pumpkin, I just like squash better and prefer squash over pumpkin. I don't dislike parsnips, I just prefer rutabaga. Whereas I do not like bananas or pears, it is a texture thing. I can, however, eat both in baked goods. I do not like lutefisk, it is definitely a texture thing. However, if served s/thing I do not like at s/one else's home, I will eat it. It just is not something that shows up in my grocery cart or in my house. We all have foods we enjoy, and those that are just so-so.

That's exactly how I feel about it too. I will try a new food instead of looking at it and saying Yuk!
