    When I was growing up and butchered a hog we didn't lose anything but the squeal, and if we stuck it right, didn't lose that. The thing I remember after all the other stuff was mastodon meat. I worked close to Safeway International in DC and we would kick in a buck or two, take turns buying odd things just to see if we all would try whatever. With a little beer we managed to try everything they sold.

    Even with beer I bet the detergent was tough to wash down. I don't even want to think about the deoderant spray.

    Those big round pink "breath mints" I've seen in urinals seemed to take the soapy taste out of your mouth.

    I had squirrel stew when I was younger. That's as adventurous as I've ever been. And it was enough.

    When I lived in Japan, I ate a lot of things raw that I wouldn't normally eat. Chicken, horse and bear, not to mention all sorts of sushi. Uni, which is a sea urchin looks a bit like brains. I couldn't stomach that at all.

    Dont know how I missed this the other day... I didnt say delicious, just strangest. Yeah, I'll give you some nasty old lobster..I have to drag some down with me to PA every year. Just meet me around Scranton the weekend after Thanksgiving and you can help yourself to a few in the cooler. Oh, and you can even keep the mice.

    I eat a lot of stuff.

    I was going to say Uni was probably one of the weirdest. But, its not all that bad. I describe it as an explosion of salt water. The guy who ordered it for me said most folks he knew were not good after trying it and that he threw up after eating it the first time. He said it was an acquired taste. If I throw up after paying that much for a raw friggin sea creature. I ain't acquiring it ever again. LOL

    Always, remember though it is in how it is prepared. If your gator was chewy, it wasn't prepared right or a good cut. Frog legs have been served to me under cooked. My brother tried a rocky mountain oyster a few weeks back and said the texture sucked. Mudbugs should be boiled while they are moving and you can keep the corn and potatoes that are boiled with them.

    I know lots of people who have tried venison and didn't like it. But, we cook it up and they love it. I do a habenero mustard gator tenderloin that everybody likes. Works good on yard bird also.
    Anyone eat civiche? Ever made it? I like civiche made with hot peppers. I am one day going to catch some fish at camp and use the sour orange juice to cook it.

    Usually when we buy Civiche we also buy leche de tigre.

    Green mangos with salt?

    Ripe mangos with dried hot peppers?

    Fresh water snapping turtle, snake, squid, octopus (raw and cooked), ants, various inards.

    If you will prepare it for me. I will eat it with you.

    Octopus???? Never, never again. Raw, slid down. Dried, chewed for an hour and finally spit it out. Did watch a drunk at a raw bar try to chew a couple of oysters.

    I was anti squid and octopus for awhile. But, I have had raw and fried squid that is super tender and tasty. I just decided to give octopus a try again at a sushi bar and it was tender as hell and raw.

    That's why I said have someone who swears it is good prepare it.

    I eat haggis when I go to the Scottish festival. Bangers and mash and a McEwan's or two usually also.

    not really a fan of mashed potatos. potatos baked, fried, or in a stew are great, its just something about the texture of mashed that i dont like. i dont like food that feels like its already been chewed

    I've had the pleasure to dine on; dog, cat, variety of birds, snakes, buried cabbage, almost hached eggs, and a variety of raw fish.

    Don't eat insects...well on purpose that is.

    I no longer eat raw fish.

    Lol! That is the strangest buffet I've ever heard of! I've had bird, snake,raw fish (I'm with you, I'll cook it from now on) and possibly cat..they closed the place down and I never learned why but where did you get dog meat from?

    Dried mopani worms are a local treat and doesn't taste that bad.I amused the kids the other day by eating black ants.We used to eat them when we were children ourselves.They taste sour.I had snake,crocodile,shark,various innards of animals,cooked chicken feet,wild birds,all sorts of game(of that we have a wide variety),porcupine,baked pigs head and ostrige before.That is about the strangest that I have had.I grew up poor and if it was edible we ate it.

    B2L - What on earth can you eat on a chicken's foot? There's nothing there.

    Who me? It got real quiet at the dinner table after that. Do you have any idea how hard it is to eat when you have an ear to ear grin.

    Ken-You boil them in salt water and take the skin of then you suck the meat from the bones.There is a jelly like "meat" on the bones.If you prepare it right it is very tasty.It is sold here in the bucheries.Some bucheries sells the heads as well.
