Yes I mean they are relatively normal :) my mom LOVES sauerkraut. She would enjoy eating it plain, with a fork lol. And quite a few people in my family enjoy lutefisk. My aunt brings it for Christmas sometimes. I've never been able to bring myself to try it.

That's what I thought--normal foods (although, I'm not sure those in other areas would agree)!

I don't know where I would get chicken feet, and the rabbit just looks delicious!!

The problem with many of the foods I would find on the bizarre foods site is not being able to find them. I looked for like a top ten list on there or something like that and I didn't see anything.

So far this is what the lineup is looking like:

1. Liver (cooked, unseasoned, cold)
2. Whole raw onion
3. Brussels sprouts (cooked, unseasoned, cold)
4. Sauerkraut
5. Can of sardines

Bf wants to ask a butcher about getting some "Colorado oysters" lol. The Brussels sprouts and sauerkraut are definitely still up for debate. Well, any of them, really, if there are any other fun ideas we like better. If we can find lutefisk and it isn't too expensive that might make it on there, or pigs feet. Are pickled pigs feet any good?

How about anchovies? They're often available in a jar.

If there's an Asian grocery store near you, they would have the chicken feet.

I think it would have been a psychologically disturbing picture. Even the picture above is a bit disturbing because of the slight resemblance of these feet to human hands.

I wonder if he is still alive.....
I've never had a Crisco sandwich. But, I do like something that Danes & Swedes eat (could be Norwegians, Finns, Icelanders too, but I don't know for sure). Heavy, dark rye bread (rugbrød) smeared with pig fat (from cooking, not lard) with salt and pepper. Not something I would want much of in a go or every day. It tastes better in the cold of winter.
