Rocket, my outside cat loves the stuff! Tears into it with passion and won't quit until his bowl is licked clean.

Cat's use no logic in thier actions. One day they do one thing and the next they don't.

Pineapple with chicken is bad news for me. Digestively.
Apple and Pork are paired because Apples are fall fruit and Pork is (was) killed in the fall, at least here in the USA.

I agree, I bit into one once and it made me sick, literally. I don't even buy those gourmet jelly beans anymore. You can't hardly tell the odd ones from the good ones, the coloring is so close...



Fruit and cream. They don't belong together!

I didn't mean that I didn't know the origin, what I meant was that it just makes no sense to me to eat fruit and meat together. Sorry PattY. Thanks for the history thing though, I like all that trivia stuff.

I used to think fruit and meat together sounded horrible, but then I remembered that we were raised eating pork roast with applesauce. Some combinations sound strange to me, but I love to take a bite of pork roast along with applesauce. A friend made a pork, apple, and onion dish once that was really good. I also love to take a bite of cranberry sauce with a bite of turkey. Try a little applesauce with pork roast sometime. You might be surprised!

I just provided that because a lot of people do not make the connection with seasonal food and meals. I had this conversation with a few people before and I was really shocked that they had no clue. I personally don't eat the fruit and meat together, just in the same meal. IE Fried Apples and Pork Chops on the same plate not on each other!
