Aha! I found a liverball recipe (liver dumplings). Dad always put them in a beef broth soup with celery, carrot and onion. They are traditional Czech food which I personally hated. Grinding liver was so disgusting!

That's why I seldom make Danish leverpostej (liver pate). It's yummy and better and cheaper than store-bought pate, but it makes such a gory mess.

This isn't the one I was looking for, as Grandma never used lemon in hers. I'll keep looking.
It sure looks good, I'm trying to remember if Gran used chopped nuts in hers. But it looks like the same texture and the flavor (minus the lemon) is real close on my minds tongue.

Thanks for the assist.

hmm, that leaves raw bananas. now, that's gonna be a tough one....
Pfffft...that's an easy one....dip the banana in dark chocolate and roll it around in...nuts. Food of the Gods...oh wait..that's the chocolate.

Now that's something I love to see on my plate. Just not the chubs.
Wrap your shredded zucchini in cheesecloth then twist it until all the water comes out.

When I started this thread, I never dreamt that it would go this far. Such a varied list of disliked foods among all of us.

I want raw, dead fish on my plate. I might even eat raw live fish considering exactly wha it is...

If it weren't for parasites I'd love to catch a live tuna and carve hunks of sashimi out of its living body and dip it in wasabi and soy sauce and consume it!

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!!!!

Reminds me of the song:

Quote:
Fish heads fish heads,
Roly poly fish heads,
Fish heads fish heads,
Eat them up yum.

Fish heads fish heads,
Roly poly fish heads,
Fish heads fish heads,
Eat them up yum.

In the morning,
Laughing happy fish heads,
In the evening,
Floating in the soup,

Fish heads fish heads,
Roly poly fish heads,
Fish heads fish heads,
Eat them up yum.

Ask a fish head,
Anything you want to,
They won't answer,
They can't talk.

Fish heads fish heads,
Roly poly fish heads,
Fish heads fish heads,
Eat them up yum.

I took a fish head,
Out to see a movie,
Didn't have to pay
To get it in.

Fish heads fish heads,
Roly poly fish heads,
Fish heads fish heads,
Eat them up yum.

They cant play baseball,
They don't wear sweaters,
They're not good dancers,
They don't play drums.

Fish heads fish heads,
Roly poly fish heads,
Fish heads fish heads,
Eat them up yum.

Roly poly fish heads are never seen
Drinking cappuccino in Italian restaurants,
With oriental women, yeah!

Fish heads fish heads,
Roly poly fish heads,
Fish heads fish heads,
Eat them up yum.

Fish heads fish heads,
Roly poly fish heads,
Fish heads fish heads,
Eat them up yum, (yum!)

Fish heads fish heads,
Roly poly fish heads,
Fish heads fish heads,
Eat them up yum.

Fish heads fish heads,
Roly poly fish heads,
Fish heads fish heads,
Eat them up yum,

Yea....!!!

I remember there was a spoof website, something like manmeat.com that purported to sell steaks made from human flesh.

It looked like a real site. Perhaps the jokesters tired of their jokes, or perhaps they were pressured to quit teasing about such a sensitive subject.

I also remember petv.org, "People for the Ethical Treatment of Vegetables," which is also now defunct. It was a great spoof of the PETA site.

Personally I have no objection to killing any animals except those who are our common pets (dogs & cats) ... and humans of course ... for meat. As far as plants, I don't think they have any ability to perceive pain or any central nervous system to recognize it, so kill all the plants you like (except endangered species).

I recall a story told to me by my Chinese friend and colleague Qiuyan who was loaned a pet dog when she was a girl growing up in China. (She eventually earned an engineering degree and emigrated to the US and worked with me at a medical electronic company.) One day her neighbor who loaned her the pet dog reclaimed it, hung it by its hind legs and beat it with a baseball bat (to tenderize it) until it died, and then he cooked it and offered Qiuyan some of the meat, which of course she declined.

It was a pretty strong story, I hope you don't mind me sharing it, but it illustrates that other cultures may regard our pets as food animals. And to cap off the story, many people regard cows as sacred in India yet beef is one of our biggest meat sources in Western society.

Is it a pet or is it food? It depends on your cultural and culinary values and customs.

The ricer actually does a better job. I used to drain it with a bit of salt added and then use cheesecloth or a dishtowel.
