Yeah, I guess there are some things that are worse than raw onions.

No Organ Meat crowd gets a new joiner. Ick!
Not a big fan of lima beans either. The texture of grapes gets me angry for some reason. Sort of insta-rage comes upon me and I have to go be a grump off by myself for a little while to get over it. Fish I have an aversion to as well.

I used to keep fish as pets and have had a number of exotic fresh water species that I've had quite and attachment to so it's a bit like enjoying some wine and bbq pet dog or cat for dinner. Something I just can't get over for some reason. Some friends cook the nicest fish dishes and I just have to turn down much to my embarrassment.

Oh Bleat!

Organ meat and seafood...ewwww. I can't get over the texture of some seafood. Rhubarb, raw tomatoes (I will eat any cooked one, sauce, etc), broccoli, cauliflower and asparagus. I have tried them many times. YUK!

Lima beans aka dirt bombs; clams in any form.
Friends don't let friends eat organ meat, ok?

I used to live next door to a wonderful filipino family. They had unbelievable parties and served all kinds of incredible food. The only thing I didn't like was the blood casserole. The chicken feet were kinda weird too!

Lots of votes for the non-organ meat crowd. Count me in.

I could never understand why people would eat liver. Makes no sense. It's a filter. Why would you want to ingest a filter? Uh... HELLOOOOOOO?

Brussell sprouts used to be on my list but it turns out that if you don't cook them like my mother - boiled into next week - then they're actually not too bad. Gently and nicely steamed & served w/butter & cracked pepper, yea. Not bad at all.

But I'm all with BrianW and his aversion to lima beans. I bought a bag of frozen ones once mistaking them for peas. Got them home, opened up the bag and GAH!! Well, I tried them anyway.

Bad idea.

I gave the frozen bag to a buddy who had just had a vasectomy. Apparently you can use the bag to... uh... er... nevermind.

Ditto on lima beans. Shredded coconut. Black licorice. Those ooey-gooey holiday fruit cakes. I can do cauliflower steamed but not raw. It is not uncommon in this region to find livers/gizzards on the menu, and a local eatery is known for it's....brain sammiches.

How 'bout food allergies? Walnuts give me terrible abdominal pain. Too much processed sugar exacerbates my eczema. I consider that a blessing in disguise, because it helps to keep my sugar carbs in check.

And I recently discovered that I have a terrible aversion to guinea eggs. The first time eating them was a scrambled batch shared w/multiple people and I was the only one who got sick, so I chalked it up to food poisoning from a previous meal. After the second time ingesting them only a week later and having a repeat performance (thankfully not nearly as bad because I only had about half of one egg) is when I figured out the common denominator. The first time felt like the 23rd level of hell (or rather "Purge"atory)....let's just say when it was all said & done I was 6lbs. lighter...oy vey iz mir!

Blah blah blah....yada yada yada!

Roger on the fruit cake. Claxton, GA should be nuked.
Black licorice - yup.
As Dawn says, describing the texture of shredded coconut: Toenail clippings. <ACK!>
Brain sammich... Is that equivalent to staying at a Holiday Inn Express?
With you all on liver. I cannot bear to look at it.

Most of us are so caught up in life that we forget to live it.

RE: Foods we can't stand ...
Add me to the non-fruitcake/non licorice group/brain food group. I will live my life just fine without those foods in my life!

A party without cake is really just a meeting

RE: Foods we can't stand ...
Ahhh...yeah I'm on the NO organ meat train. My Mom would cook liver and she did a fantastic job. Soaking it in milk and then patting it off and dredging it into a seasoned flour mix. She would cook the liver in a onion/ butter/bacon grease mix until it was just done(not shoe leather consitency). It's the texture/taste I just can't do. My Mom would tell us when we were little that it was steak Ha! Nope Zip Nada.. because my grandfather was a farmer I knew what real steak tasted like. She also tried to pass heart off once in the the same way and when my Dad asked what we were eating she spelled it out. I was 5 at the time( the meat tasted icky) and learing to read so I sounded out the letters--he, heaar,heart --BLAHHH out of my mouth flew the chunk of slightly chewed organ meat which landed across the table bounced twice and landed on the floor where our puppy gleefully devoured it. I seem to remember a spanking and being sent to my room with out finishing supper, not a hardship.




Ok the Hubby also reminded me of my aversion to Lutefisk..Norweigian fish jello. That's another tale.
