Food you can't stand.

I'm generally not a fussy eater and will try pretty much anything. There are foods that I can't stand eating anymore. Some, I just never was a fan of. Others, I will flat out refuse to eat.

There are two main foods I can think of that I refuse to eat. One is canned peaches. I just don't like the texture and taste.

The second is jello. Any kind of jello. I was never a fan of it but when I had my accident, the only thing I could eat for 10 days in ICU was jello. Breakfast lunch and supper. Jello. I can't stand it now and would rather lick a dirty toilet bowl than eat another mouthful of jello.

What about you? What foods don't you like and why?

I'll eat your Jello, and your canned peaches.


I'll eat just about anything, and I even love my vegetables.

I can only think of one thing right off the bat that I absolutely abhor.

Liver!

This isn't the reason why I hate it, but the first time my mother ever served me liver as a kid, I got down from the table to look for my Beagle.
I was certain she had killed my dog, cooked it, and was feeding it to me.

I love canned peaches. Ilovejello unless it has slaw or carrots or fruit cocktail in it. Plain Jello I'll eat anytime.
Liver. One of my favorites. Liver and onions at Mother-in-Law's cost $35.
It is my favorite entree'


Calamari,, no way.

I'm with Franc on the liver. I love it, never get to eat it though unless we go out someplace and it's on the menu. My wife is a great cook but she won't cook liver ... she won't even handle it. If I try to cook it, it's dog food.

In the old days I'd eat pretty much anything. In the Far East, South America, Africa and Egypt I've eaten some pretty strange stuff. These days, with diabetes, there are a lot of things that I just can't eat anymore but you'll find me standing in front of the bakery cabinet, like a little kid, saying nothing, just staring and slobbering. :)

Capers and okra!
I don't drink milk either.
Most everything else is a-ok.

.

I also happen to like Liver & onions if cooked well but not at 35 bucks no matter how well its cooked. I'd choose a nice steak, ribs, or a whole host of other choices that can be had for less money.

Heathen!!! :bolt:

Actually, my wife is the biscuits and gravy person but as with a lot of food, it has to HER biscuits and HER gravy. Me? I haven't eaten them in over 10 years at least.

Somebody mentioned okra and I'd like to add turnip greens to that list. I've eaten them but always feel guilty that I'm depriving some sheep somewhere of a decent meal. Yuk!

The first time my wife cooked me bacon, sausage, eggs and blueberry pancakes on the same plate I didn't know what to do. We Brits, or at least this one, can't handle the thought of breakfast and dessert at the same time. Give me the pancakes on the side and we're good. Until I met her I'd never seen anyone put cheddar cheese on apple pie either.

Heathen???? Hell man, it is damn near un American!!!!

But there ya go.

My granddad used to put cheddar on apple pie, and then cover it all with gravy. He died of heart disease at 61. One of the reasons I shy from biscuits and gravy.

Mother-in-Law's was a very high end restaurant in Ole Towne St Charles MO. Cordoned blue, Chicken Veronica, Chateau Briand...; that sort of thing.
The liver and onions was to die for and one of the cheapest items on the menu.
Cooked "well" doesn't begin to describe it.


Worth every penny but only once or twice a year.

Dammit.
I have to take a step backwards.
I love Boudain.
It has just a smidgeon of pork liver in it.

But pork liver is way milder than beef or chicken liver.

But I still won't sit down to a blob of liver no matter what.
Nor liverwurst.

But other than that, I can't think of really any other thing that I absolutely won't eat, except I did try a peyote button once.
That was probably the foulest most difficult thing I've ever tried to choke down in my life.

There are some things that I've never tried, and probably wouldn't, just because of what they are.

Chitterlings comes to mind, but that takes us back to offal and innards....

Omg. Okra. I tried hard to forget my one and only time trying that.

On our honeymoon in Charleston sc, we went on an evening dinner cruise in the harbor. Full 8 course meal. Dancing. The only thing that sticks out was they served ocra. Gross!

Never tried peyote buttons but I've been told that they are extremely bitter by someone who drank them as a tea.

What I did try and wish that I hadn't was BOILED PEANUTS.

We were driving the back roads in Georgia and there were stalls and signs up all over the place for boiled peanuts. I'd never tried them so we had to stop and get a big bag. They didn't last in the car for a mile before getting tossed. They smell like crap, taste like crap, they are crap. Sorry Georgia but that's the truth.

I've tried the roadside boiled peanuts, didn't see what all the fuss was about either, except you don't need teeth to eat them.

I had a friend who came to visit from Alabama.
He brought a #10 can of boiled peanuts with him.
They seemed to taste a little better than the roadside ones, but I doubt I'd ever try looking for them.

Kind of thought this was the case. In our case whenever we felt the urge to enjoy some extravagance we'd choose a good quality middle shelf so we could spread it around with others of our choosing.

Oh,.. I forgot one of the things you only eat once in your life

While in the Philippines, I ate a Balut,... one was enuf

... if you don't know what it is, do a google, but, be prepared for an eye opener.

Baluts and San Miguel...Breakfast of Champions
