    Unusual Foods

    What is the most unusual food item/recipe you have seen or tried? If you have tried the unusual item, what was it like? Did you like or dislike it?

    Re: Unusual Foods

    I had to think on this a little bit because I don't know what to consider unusual food any more. So I am going with sweatbreads. If you don't know what sweatbreads are its basically the thymus or the pancreas of an animal mainly calf and lamb. You have to eat them hot!!! Cold is gross, and I didn't dislike them but they are by no means my favorite.

    I pretend I don't know. When I was a kid I could eat it in menudo just fine. But I would first wrap it in a piece of tortilla. I didn't like the hard jelly consistency. Like you KNOW what you are eating. As I got older I just ate the hominy and the broth. Soo good. And I would always skip the pata. Ewe. No.

    Either snails (escargot) which are really, really good if cooked right, or giant puffball fungus, which is OK fried. The little puffballs are OK, too.

    I would like to try brain sometime...

    Re: Unusual Foods

    In NY/NJ I never heard of anyone eating squirrel, but it's pretty common in the Ozarks. Makes a good pot pie or pulled/shredded with some kind of sauce like pork BBQ. They also just fry it but I'm not crazy about that myself.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    Re: Unusual Foods

    I'm NY born, Jersey bred, Appalachian educated, and Ozarks pasteurized.

    "Real" pizza & bagels will always top my list, but I can get down with some fried catfish & hush puppies, too. Hush puppies are southern Zeppole, I guess....
