Here's what I detest:

Beans: Kidney, Lima, White, etc. (really any bean of this kind)
Black eyed peas (yuck!)
Fried eggs with runny yolks (only like them scrambled and hard boiled)
okra (triple yuck!)
squash
Blue Cheese
Cauliflower
Turnip and Collard Greens
Ham (mainly due to when growing up Mom would find (or seem to) the saltiest one around and now I can't stand the taste of ham)


I love liver though, both beef and chicken. But since I'm the only one in my family who likes liver, it keeps getting voted down so I rarely get it. Oh well.

I will try just about anything, and I don't think there's anything I really hate, though I didn't want to try nato when it was proffered. I have no desire to try chitterlings, tongue, tripe or brains. I love gizzards, livers and hearts. Haven't had kidneys, but don't think I want to either, and don't want to knowingly eat bugs, testicles or rodents (though I *have* had squirrel, and it was pretty good).

Eggplant (Aubergine to you Brits). Completely inedible unless there's something there--like garlic and tomato sauce--to cover the eggplant taste. And if it's an older, bitter one, even that won't help. (When I was about 6, my mom stood over me and made me chew and swallow a helping of breaded, fried eggplant. I did manage to swallow it, but it didn't stay down...)

I know that feeling well. I was at boarding school, about 8 or 9 I think (it was a very long time ago) and we had steak & kidney pie. I hid the kidney in an empty gem squash case but was caught and made to eat it. The staff regretted it as they had to clean up from the dining room to the toilets.

Are you sure they were raisins? I have never seen a hairy one in my life. Try eating a roll with your eyes closed so you can't see them. They won't go crunch in your mouth and they won't bite back.

Anything Indian. Even the smell drives me nuts.
