Cauliflower. No one eats it unless it's smothered in something to hide the lack of flavor.

Brussels Sprouts...horrid stuff!

PattY1 04-30-2011 01:43 PM

Fish Taco's :sick::sick::sick: I just had some pre-vomit salivation in my mouth just typing that! Call it a Fish Wrap and I am ok with that. I just associate Taco's with meat.

Second that. Also, Sweet potatoes with marshmallows, liver and onions. Blech.

Love fish tacos, especially in Mexico.

MSC 04-30-2011 02:09 PM

LOL when I read the title of this thread I thought you'd be talking about grub ranging from the exotic to the unmentionable. FWIW I like all the 'yucky' items listed here and so here's my idea of truly "yucky" food, all of which are for "real" and consumed daily by millions.
Still beating cobra heart accompanied by a glass of cobra blood
this from Taipei's "Snake Alley", and while we're there, another absolutely yucky item they love is 'stinky tofu'. It makes durians smell like roses!
And from Sardinia, the oh so delectable 'casu marzu' cheese which comes complete with live maggots that jump at your eyes.
Then there are 'eyeballs', from fish to lamb and other animals, served up in all sorts of yucky ways.
But must admit to trying and 'liking' Rocky Mountain oysters, so LOL guess it's a matter of degree as to what is yucky and what isn't.
And have also eaten cooked "dead" insects and bugs, but never when they're still alive and kicking, the way millions enjoy them...YUCK!

Barbara L 04-30-2011 02:25 PM

With the exception of fish tacos (which I found terribly bland) I like all the foods mentioned so far.

The two I don't understand why anyone would eat them are caviar and escargot. They even had to give them fancy names because who would want to eat fish eggs and snails if not tricked into it?! :lol::rofl::lol:

You just haven't had the right fish tacos!:wink: I like both caviar and snails. I'd love to try sea urchin, but I believe the ones folks eat are from cold water and the ones from our warm waters would not be good. BTW, there is now snail egg "caviar", anybody game?:rolleyes:

DaveSoMD 04-30-2011 03:03 PM

One word....tripe.

For those who don't like Brussels Sprouts, try them roasted, they have a much better flavor.

I'm with you on tripe.

Cold, marinated Brussels Sprouts are also good if you don't like the cooked flavor.

I like Brussels Sprouts, but you want to find small tender ones. When they are too big, they are often strong and bitter.

Aunt Bea 04-30-2011 03:31 PM

Pickled lamb tongues! My Dad used to eat them and they just grossed me out.

tinlizzie 04-30-2011 03:37 PM

Okra.
Brains.
And Snails.
Oh yeah. Tripe, too.
Blood Pudding.
Yick. That's not fun to think about.

The Brussels Sprouts have to be small and tender...so I can swallow them whole without tasting them.:rofl:

Selkie 04-30-2011 03:50 PM

Most everything mentioned so far is OK. A few things, such as tripe I don't like, but I wouldn't call "yuck" and be willing to eat if offered as a guest.

My "yuck"... never to pass my lips, is: Blood Sausage, poi or hominy. :yuk:

i made a cauliflower mash for a side last night. lots of butter mashed in, a little garlic powder and pepper, paprika. then through in so shredded cheese. wonderful and much lower cal. than potatoes.

the one i think is yucky is beef liver. had a bad experience in childhood. won't touch it. in the eye of the beholder, i guess.:ermm:

CWS4322 04-30-2011 04:53 PM

Sardines.

I've never had fish tacos, but when I went out with my girlfriends from HS while I was in MN, one ordered walleye tacos...to die for. I ordered bourbon wings because I don't make wings at home--but I was sorry I didn't order the walleye tacos. She was nice enough to let me sample <g>. The walleye was deep fried, the sauce was a "not quite mild" salsa verde, and the toppings were lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese (that Mexican cheese of which I can never remember the name). Soft flour taco shells. I've got some walleye in the freezer and I'm planning fish tacos soon.

MrsLMB 04-30-2011 05:00 PM

A-1 Steak Sauce just a nasty way to ruin a good steak
Lima Beans
Sardines
Anchovies

Kayelle 04-30-2011 05:50 PM

Every time I've said I don't like brussel sprouts someone tells me what to do so I'll like them. It's just not important to me to make the effort. :lol:
There are really few things on the average Western table I wouldn't try, or don't like. I even like tripe if it's prepared well.

All of the truly weird and nasty stuff mentioned by CWS on post #11 are without a doubt out of the question. In addition to those things, I would add
dogs, cats, horses, rodents, mammal sea animals , primates, reptiles, elephant and a host of other things.

LOVE them both. Good caviar does not taste fishy, and escargot in garlic butter...mmmmmmm. Like really chewy mushrooms.

Dawgluver 04-30-2011 05:55 PM

Grandpa's blood sausage. Great grandma's head cheese made from a real pig's head (nightmares). Menudo (made with tripe). And Brussels sprouts no matter how they are prepared.

Hoot 04-30-2011 06:10 PM

Oops... I reckon I am in the wrong thread....I like all of this stuff!!!
Don't mind me... I will just quietly slip out the door...

Shame on you Barb. I love both of them, especially the snails, don't look at them as garden pigs look at them as lettuce eaters:lol: I know they look dirty but after they run barefoot through the ceansing lettuce they are pristine. YUM with butter and garlic. Caviar, is rather fishy but oh so good atop deviled eggs. OK you made me hungry

Cringe. Memories of an intact severed sow's head sitting on butcher paper on the kitchen table. Shudder. Which GG boiled.

Tell about your run in, Kadesma!

jabbur 04-30-2011 07:02 PM

I cannot stand beef liver, chicken livers or chicken gizzards. Beef liver literally makes me gag. One day my mom was cooking it making a liver and onions dish. It smelled sooo good! I was excited to try it. First bite and gag.

As a kid I loved head cheese ate it every time I could. One day I came home from school went to the refrigerator to get a glass of lemonade, opened the door and there staring at me was one big hogs head eyes and all intact. I bet my screams can still be heard echoing over the years. I've never eaten that yuk again. Same with the bear paw someone gave gramps to cook for us.YUKITY YUK YUK:lol: And as for my grandmother who tried to serve me my pet rabbit, lord love her that was hard to forgive or eat. I didn't it was hard going to bed before dark and with growling tummy

I have to agree...I'm old enough now that I never have to eat another green bean casserole.

I like green beans with lemon zest, garlic and sliced almonds.

simonbaker 04-30-2011 08:47 PM

Nasty food to me is venison(deer meat) Everyone always says you have to try it my way. As far as I am concerned there is no good way to eat it.

Chef Munky 04-30-2011 09:14 PM

Mushrooms!!!!!

They look horrible. Can't stand how slimy they are. Gummy little things. Reminds me every time I see them of the little slugs the slimy ones that hide under a rock. Grosses me out. I can't handle even looking at food pics that have them in it. :ohmy:
I have issues with them. Excuse me while I work it out..:biggrin:

Munky.

I grew up eating fried cod eggs. They aren't bad. I suspect they could be quite yummy. I like nice, pink, salmon "caviar". I don't think I have had the really good stuff, but I would like to try it. The less good stuff is yummy. Sour cream or crème fraiche go well with caviar.

As to escargot, I find them bland and rubbery. The sauce is excellent. It would go well with mushrooms and they would fit nicely in those special bowl/plate things they use to serve escargot. Now, sea snails, that's a whole 'nother story. Lots of yummy flavour and not usually as rubbery.
