I forgot to mention cherry pie.......oh how I hate cherry pie. Shudder.
I don't like red cherries at all, or blueberries either.

Kades and TL, I will follow your advice about brussel sprouts and try again.

TL, I've looked at your recipe for gravad laks many times and I'm really going to give it a go one day soon.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

I agree with everything but lima beans, Kayelle. Forgot about the salmon, thought it was just me who can't stand it unless it's smoked.

Don't even bother with bacon with brussels sprouts, it just ruins perfectly good bacon. Been there, done that, not doing it again.

Liver- Oddly enough, I liked it as a kid, especially deer liver, and I was a really picky child.

Seafood- I grew up in Maine around some of the planet's best seafood. I have tried, shrimp, scallops, lobster, and various kinds of fish. I just can't get past the smell, even the very subtle smell of really fresh seafood. I also don't really like the texture of most of it.

About the only thing I can think of I wouldn't try is that raw monkey brains dish they eat in China or wherever.

I always find this topic extremely interesting. I reckon I am in the minority, but there just ain't much, if anything, I don't like. I am at the top of the food chain.....I eat ever'thing. Mrs Hoot just lets me be about it although she does look at me sideways from time to time.

Yep. Won't eat any animal innards period. Liver is a filter for bad things - I don't believe such was meant to be consumed. Nor would I even be willing to try things like eyeballs or other unmentionables.

Anything and everything that has "cream of ____" soup as an ingredient. Including dishes that have sat next to dishes that have cream of ____ in them. haha

Hot dogs, jello & peas are definitely on the will-not-eat list.

Lots of things I don't mind, but would just rather not: hamburger comes to mind, lima beans have been known to remain in a pile on my plate, uncooked celery (absolutely ruins egg / tuna / chicken salads, imo!), tomato-based sauces in general and cooked / baked raisins.
