my parents are the same, growing up in the 30's they were taught to cook it to death then add 15 minutes, made any pork taste like sawdust

I do mine in a pressure cooker, or if I'm really feeling lazy, I just go buy some at the chinese bbq joint in the city

Sorry for the digression, NS.

Probably the weirdest holiday food I've ever seen (but not eaten) was over in China. Now they don't celebrate Christmas per se, but they do celebrate Chinese New Year which is around the same season (late January).

I actually witnessed the live Monkey tradition where they eat the brains (after killing it). I can't stand monkeys, but that one was a little over the top even for me!

That, and Pidan, or '100 year old eggs'. Them things is NASTY with a capital 'N'! In the Philippines there is a similar dish called 'Balut'...which is even more fun because you get parts of the bird embryo too (if they're done correctly). No thanks!

I've been thinking of trying that old Richard Nixon favorite...cottage cheese and ketchup

Peanut butter and maple syrup on my pancakes.
Is that weird? Every time I eat it my friends look at me like I belong in a straight jacket.

In Hawaii I have had deep fried fish bones and dried squid. The more you chew the squid the bigger it gets. In Florence I had octopuses ceviche. And in the great state of Georgia, pork cracklings and hogs head cheese. But nothing freaked me out like sea urchin roe.

To wash it all down my favourite is ice cold apple pie moonshine, made the old fashion way in a home made still and aged about 20 minutes for flavour.

Of course, then there's the Durian fruit (if you could call it that...a 'fruit') of SE Asia.

I've often wondered how different food dishes evolved. In other words, what made people think..."Yeah, let's EAT that!"

Here's a "fruit" which has a husk which would make a porcupine jealous, it's as hard as a rock and could easily be used as a formidable weapon. When you split it open with an axe or a serious machete (actually a parang), it smells like you've just severed a major sewer line. The pulp inside smells like a road-killed skunk which has been in the sun for a week. And once you get to the center (if you can make it that far without vomiting) you get this sac of stuff which looks greenish-tan in color (pretty much like pus or snot). This is the part you eat.

It's one of the only things on Earth (so I've come to understand) which doesn't taste like how it smells. The taste is completely different. It tastes like cherry mixed with mammoth amounts of garlic, like cherry-garlic, if you can picture that. It's off-the-scale rich. (not to my liking, but I did try it a couple times).

"Yeah, let's eat that!" (??????)

do you cook them like chicken feet?


All depends on how much meat is on them.

...apple pie moonshine...


We called that "Apple Jack", if it's the same thing I'm thinking of. You could drink it, use it to strip paint or run your car on it.

Good stuff!

My grandfather used to eat fish head soup. I ate it with him when I was young. I preferred the cheeks, he liked the eyes. It was really tasty soup.

Unmentionable part of Camel (deep fried, of course):

I have to say, fried camel dong is possibly the weirdest thing I have heard of.

What does it taste like? Does it have a little wang to it?

out here they make prairie oysters (deep fried bulls testicles), actually not bad if you can get past the thought of what you're eating
