in the greque's around paris there is no knowing what meat your buying

Quote
... trio of homeless men were arrested in Russia - accused of murdering the man with knives and a hammer.

Prosecutors revealed: "After carrying out the crime, the corpse was divided up - part of it was eaten and part of it was sold to a kiosk selling kebabs and pies."

Suspicions were raised when dismembered parts of a human body were found near a bus stop in the outskirts of the Russian city of Perm - which is 720 miles east of Moscow.

I can't think of anything really out of the ordinary I've eaten. Frog legs, snails, octopus and squid I've had, but don't think them odd. Tripe I've had and quite honestly I think I might just as well have eaten a bathroom sponge. The most disgusting, which I think I may have mentioned before, was a French offal sausage. It quite literally smelt like the chef had fried one of his own turds. Needless to say, I didn't eat any of it.

I was stationed in Germany during my military stay and discovered a sausage called: Blutwurst

Translated into English that would be: Blood sausage.

It's made with pork and beef, small pieces of heart, kidney, and an assortment of other internal organs. These items are mixed together in the blood of the animal along with spices and allowed to clot. The product is then aged and allowed to dry substantually producing a sausage with a very deep purple color.

It's extremely good cut into small pieces and spread over fried potatoes. As the potatoes fry, the blood sausage will literally melt over the potatoes as they cook.

Yummy, yummy, in my tummy. I must say, it's one of my favorite sausages.

Ok I admit it.
The doggiest thing I have eaten was a pickled pig's foot from a jar behind the bar in a pool hall.

The jar of pickled eggs next to it however, no, wouldn't touch that.

Palm heart
Bamboo shoots
Sea Weed
Kimchi
Sauerkraut
Fiddlehead Ferns
Breadfruit
Morels
Chanterelles
Boiled Peanuts
Monkey Apple
Pommecythere


But the most unusual would probably be Polk Salad.
I prefer Collards though.

Speaking of pickled eggs¹ (or just eggs in general) has anyone ever tried "balut", a specialty food of the Philippines and other parts of Asia?  They use fertilized chicken or duck eggs, almost fully developed, and they boil them in the shell, and eat them like a hard-boiled egg.  They say the whole thing is edible, except the shell of course.  Definitely different....

____________________
¹ Hard-boiled eggs frighten me; those big jars of pickled eggs scare the kidneys out of me!

My ex-husband and children love pickled eggs! They boil them up and then brine them for a couple weeks before they eat them... They say they are delicious!

I love Bamboo shoots in stir fry's as well as Chanterelles.
I hate Sauerkraut  at least in Saurkraut form but love cabbage otherwise.
I had sea weed in some souchi(sorry spelling is wrong. anyone have a clue?) it was not bad but salty a bit slimy if not done right.

The ugliest vegetable I've eaten has to be celeriac - lovely stuff, but not pretty.

I've eaten some strange things in places like Thailand, Indonesia & Bolivia:

Deep fried cockroaches (which just taste of crunchy oil - not a pleasant experience),
Honey ants (lovely - you just bite the abdomen off - it's more a syrup flavour than honey, but really nice)
Grubs (not good)
Rattan hearts (a bit like palm hearts - quite nice really)
Lemon ants (more like termites, they live in lumpy nests on trees in South America - just slice off a but of the nest and they come swarming - they taste of sherbet - sort of fizzy and citrus).

Most of this was as part of Jungle training - when doing research in rainforests it's important to know what you can and can't eat, in case you get stranded or lost.

I think cilantro is magical.
Raw carrots on the other hand--pass.
It's their texture I can't stand.

I love raw carrots . I cannot eat cilantro just to eat it and have had very few things I like it in. I basically do not like it not to say I have not had things it was good in if not too overpowering.l a little goes a long way!

Haggis is very nice, but cilantro is disgusting! Is it a by-product of petroleum production?
