I get so grossed out.

LOL...sorry...I love old cookbooks and some of the things they have recipes for are even worse. I remember when I wanted to make some cinnamon buns and I looked up Sweet Breads, but it was Sweetbreads instead. Sweetbreads=guts icon_sad.gif For a whole month I didn't look up anything else in that book.

HA HA! Texas Rose my mom ate sweetbreads last year with her friend at a fancy restaurant. Her friend wouldn't tell her what it actually was. When she came home she called me. I said I would tell her in a few weeks. When she brought it up again I told her what it actually was. She turned a few shades lighter. I told her that's why I waited a month to tell her cause I knew she would puke.

I hate hate hate jello, can't stand the stuff. I've seen a recipe where meat, veggies and jello are mixed together in a dish. The jello is not used to hold this together either but as a main component *GAG*.

Oh now that's just not right.

BTW... sweetbreads aren't just 'guts'. They are actually glands.... the thymus and the pancreas of beef, lamb or pork.

and sometimes the heart is added into sweetbreads also.

You need to watch the Vicar of Dibley, one of the characters makes weird dishes.

Letitia Cropley (Liz Smith), the queen of Cordon Bleurgh, famous for her idiosyncratic recipes such as bread and butter pudding surprise (a recipe for which she was breeding snails), Marmite cakes (which she served for Franks birthday), chocolate mixed with cod roe, parsnip brownies and chocolate spread sandwiches (with a hint of taramasalata).

Haggis is a dish containing sheep's 'pluck' (heart, liver and lungs), minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally boiled in the animal's stomach for approximately three hours.

Ok, so these are 'bad' but unusual recipes. The one I first mentioned seems to be for a 'regular' family to eat (as opposed to a cliched Scottish family, a family from 1603 (who are the only ones who could possibly have ever eaten sweetbreads or hog's head cheese with a straight face), Mormons (seems to be a high prevalence of jello-based cuisine in Utah), or a family of people with no sense of taste (snail cake etc)(actually, maybe just no sense at all...)

This is going pretty well, but I'd love to see some more recipes from regular cookbooks which make you go "WHAT?!!"

My daughter made a weight watcher's recipe for brownies that was made with refried beans. I dont' know, but when I think of a nice gooey brownie, maybe topped with some chocolate fudge icing, the ingredient of BEANS never comes to mind! (and personally, they tasted nasty!)

Chicken Feet Paprikas:

My Mom used to eat chicken feet when we were young (and still on the farm).

Enjoy the occasion gizzard or liver, but you can have my share of the feet... tapedshut.gif

There was a boy I dated in high school whose mom was a really traditional cook. One day I was helping her carry her groceries in, and she had a frozen hog's head in the trunk, complete with protruding, frozen tongue and icy, staring eyeballs. She was making tamales.

And I love tamales...but every time I have pork tamales that I haven't made, I think about that hog's head and wonder what's in them.

..like good old fashioned British Bangers (sausages), "made with ear-oles 'n' arse'oles" or "Everything but the oink."

I figured it would be edited, but thought I'd give it a shot...I'm really, really glad I'm not on your Christmas list, Tubbs!!

"Everything but the oink" LOLOLOL!! icon_lol.gif

OK what about normal foods that are just gross. My mom used to ALWAYS make "Jello Salad" - lime jello with grated carrots and canned pineapple chunks inside. Topped with a dollop of Miracle Whip.

Gleck!!!

p.s. my family background was pretty "regular" i.e. no affiliation with any "traditional," local, ethnic or religious cuisine...so your Utah/Mormon Jello speculation doesn't fly. icon_wink.gif This WAS a regular, everyday recipe!

My husband and his biological sister found each other (she was given up for adoption-long story) about 5 years ago. She lives in Canada with her husband and daughters. We went up there for Christmas that year and was having dinner over at her in-laws house. Her MIL made Head Cheese for her husband. We didn't know what it was (and quite frankly, it looked disgusting). My husband didn't want to offend her MIL so he tried some. He really didn't care for it, but told MIL that it was good. When we go up there now, the MIL always makes a big plate for my husband! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

A sandwich my mother makes....

2 slices of bread
peanut butter
Miracle Whip


She made me one once as a child. I accuse her of child abuse to this day for that disgusting thing. icon_wink.gif

Any recipe that combines meat and fruit grosses me out. Pineapple and ham pizza? *gags*

Oh my, I love Jello in all shapes and forms!!! I have a huge collection of Jello cookbooks. icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Don't know about the lime Jello, carrots and pineapple salad. I prefer my Sunshine Salad with either lemon or orange Jello.
And I've never had straight mayo as a dressing. Usually it's a combination of Mayo/Miracle Whip and whipped cream (light on the M/MW, heavy on the wc).

Also, headcheese isn't a favorite but it's not bad. Has the texture of Knox Blocks (or high school cafeteria jello).

Seems food likes/dislikes really are formed in childhood.

Eggplant was a horror to avoid in my childhood. My mom made it with a tomato sauce, green peppers, and onions. The only thing worse, to me, was grated zuchini patties. Bleeeech!
