Anything soy based (as a meat substitute) would have to fit nastiest - I'm with Doc, everyone should eat a huge slab of meat at least a few times a week. Weirdest would be beaver meat. And the strangest would be a piece of baby octopus tentacle at the chinese restaurant.

You don't want to know....however, once in a Montagnard village, I ate monkey brains out of a live monkey's head! Village chieftan stuck the monkey up under a table with a hole in it & clamped his head to the table...then they sliced off his skull and we all ate brains...washed down by lots & lots of Ba Moui Ba.....it would've been considered an insult not to partake & our team needed their assistance.....in a little place named Tien Phuoc during & after Tet where our SF camp was under seige for 5 months!

steve, i love "pidgeon", specialy the breast - a little olive oil, sage, basil (no not our basil) salt and pepper, a man could survive on it rather well, about $40.00 in a restarurant, (squab) comes with mashed tadders, the white wine goes well with it-green beans,and a salad, /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yesnod.gif

jaybird, the trick is to tell the bull you need him to stay still while you paint a portrait of him to be used in the next "red bull" advertisment, kinda lull him into a false sence of security, then run behind him fast like and bight very hard! thats how real men/gals do it. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Hey, I've made the slit, popped the Rocky Mountain Oysters, & sealed the slit - all in one motion - every year on grandad's farm (& later, mother-in-law's farm)....then deep fried the "oysters" & ate them.....but that's still not the weirdest.....any Southern man who hasn't eaten RMO's, isn't!

Rocky Mountain Oysters Recipe

2 pounds calf testicles*
2 cups beer
2 eggs, beaten
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
¼ cup yellow cornmea1
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
Vegetable oil**
1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce

* Be sure to ask your butcher for calf testicles, not bull testicles. Calf testicles are the size of a walnut and are much more tender than the larger bull testicles.

** Use enough vegetable oil to fill your frying container halfway to the top (to allow for bubbling up and splattering) and to completely cover calf testicles while frying.

With a very sharp knife, split the tough skin-like muscle that surrounds each testicle. Remove the skin (you can remove the skin easily if the testicles are frozen, then peel while thawing). Slice each testicle into approximately ¼- to ½- inch-thick ovals. Place slices in a large pan or blow with enough beer to cover them; cover and let sit 2 hours.

In a shallow bowl, combine eggs, flour, cornmeal, salt, and pepper. Remove testicles from beer; drain and dredge thoroughly in the flour mixture. In a large, deep pot, heat oil to 375 degrees F. Deep fry 3 minutes or until golden brown (will rise to the surface when done). Drain on paper towels. Serve warm with your favorite hot pepper sauce

...& chitlins

In high svhool I dated a girl who's father owned a slaughter house...they tossed the entrails in a large vat where they almost instantly became chitlins...girlfriend, when taking guys to meet dad, stopped by the vat - if a guy couldn't/wouldn't eat them, he wasn't worthy of meeting dad....dad loaned me his new Pontiac Bonneville to take daughter on overnight date to Memphis...need I say more?

Still not the weirdest!

Ain't heard nuthin' weird or out of the ordinary yet, eh Anthony?

Once I was teaching a class on Arctic survival...was making birch bark soup & rose hip tea...soup needed a little pepper so I sent a student down to the edge of a nearby lake to find bugs frozen in the ice...tossed the bugs in the stew...offered her a bug but she wouldn't eat any...bug shell tasted pretty good - lots of protein.

Still not the weirdest.

09-27-2006, 09:30 PM
Nastiest... Prarie Belt smoked sausage (like vienna suasages). You ever read the ingredients on one of those cans??!!!!
And NO I don't want to know what's in hot dogs.
Wierdest. I'm with Kenny. it's probably Beaver meat.. Tough and greasy..
also had
Buffalo
Emu
Squirrel
Elk
Moose
Deer
Squid
Frog (we caught 'em)
cattail root (don't bother it's awful)
That's about it.. I'm not very adventurous when It comes to weird food.
Tony.. you win hands down! Survival makes you do extreme things.

man... i must be a glutton for punishment reading this thread while eating Swedish Meatballs.... O_o

if the brains to noodles correlation don't get to ya the meat balls will...

my wierd food list is rather plain with Octopus and squid but I really don't consider squid to be "strange", wierd or nasty. I ate octopus at least once a month while I was stationed in Okinawa, but I think it has to be the strangest I've knowingly eaten. Not so much to me now, but the first time it was strange to me.

Nastiest has to be a salmon egg sushi roll I ate once, again in Okinawa. Never developed a taste for liver, so that still ranks on the top of my nastiest foods eaten list.

*shrug* nothing I've ever eaten can compare to Tony's tale...

jaybird
09-27-2006, 09:53 PM
I probably should have said 'unusual' in the subject line, because I don't consider everything I listed as weird or nasty. I love calamari and EWWWWWWWWWW I had a bite of salmon egg sushi (at a sushi bar in the city, they were taking around samples of different kinds) I SHOULD have known better because that wasn't on the top of my list of tasty things! Yuck.

Tony, I've heard they taste like mushrooms.

One day a man was visiting a small Mexican city. He walked into a restarant and was surrounded by a wonderful smell. He could hardly wait to try the local cuisine.

He asked “What smells so good?”

The waiter said “Once a week we have a bull fight around here. What you smell is Rocky Mountain Oysters from the bull. I am sorry sir, but you will have to wait until next week to get some because only one person can be served as there is but one bull in the fight.”

So the next week the man goes in and orders the Rocky Mountain Oysters. He is in luck because he got there and ordered them first. They were frying and he smelled the wonderful smell and could hardly wait.

When they were brought out however, he was disappointed in the size of them. The ones he saw served the last week had been bigger. He ate them and before leaving he commented that they had been small.

“Well I am sorry Señor, but sometimes the bull he wins!”

It was in 1968 & I followed it with so much terrible tasting Vietnamese beer that I had a hangover & was sick for days - from the warm beer!

Suuuuuuuuuuure it was the warm beer Tony. We believe you. 1968, Chuck was in then too. I'm certain it was your leftover monkey.

I've traveled the world over in some highly sensitive positions, most dealing with either teaching or supporting indigenous peoples...in those positions, one always works to gain their confidence...that means understanding their culture & living as they live...including eating what they eat.

So, in Germany, I ate Gebackenes Euter (you don't want to know), on an island in the middle of the Bering Strait I ate seal brain fritters, on one of the northern Japanese islands, seal flippers, in Belgium, raw horse meat, & in Korea stuff that even I don't want to know (going back for the month of December)....but, there aren't many free ranging dogs or cats in that country!

Bear- but I wouldn't eat it.........I worked for a game processor in Wyoming. A bear never gets rigamortis. When it is skinned it looks just like a human, We hung it in a cooler and when the Hormel man brought /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/jester.gif our half & quarter beef deliveries. we put a wig and gloves on it and hid in the basement as he went through the coolers.......all we heard was oh #@$# and this poor man runnning through the coolers while we all died laughing-except he wouldn't come pack whith our orders so we hadto pay double to get our orders out to the restraunts!!!!!!!!! A bear has an exact duplicate of a human body chest & all-----like cutting up your brother-our butcher would call in sick if he knew one was coming in! what wonderful tidbits of info we share!!

Gebackenes Euter
Euter=udder
500 gm cow's udder (a generous lb)
1 egg, beaten
1 plain breadcrumbs
100 gm butter (7 tbsp)
1 salt
1 pepper

In order to remove all traces of milk, put the udder into lukewarm water and let soak for 2 to 4 hours, permitting the water to cool off. Then cook the udder in a 2-percent to 3- percent salt water solution until tender. Remove from the cooking liquid and cut into 1/2-inch thick slices. Let the slices dry a bit. Season on both sides, dip into whisked egg, and then into breadcrumbs. Fry in butter, turning once, until golden brown on both sides. Serve with lettuce. Serves 4.

Yeah, I ate some weird and disgusting stuff during survival school (and other times), but I try not to bring it back up - then or now /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/pukeface.gif (ok, bad joke - I know)

I admit I have never understood why some people thinks it makes them tough or 'a real man' because of something they ate - my brother-in-law used to brag about how tough he was because he ate hot peppers all the time ... until his ulcer put him in the hospital. Now I never hear a peep from him.

So far the one thing this thread has proven to me is that if you slice anything into quarter to half inch slices and fry them up, people will eat it. Secondly, people have half to quarter as much good sense as good taste (or is that vice-versa)!

Went thru "snake school" in the Phillipines (twice... long, silly story: team of USAF & Army SF in a "bonding" exercise), arctic survival in Washington state, water survival here in Florida. Egress/ejection seat training & altitude chamber card in Virginia... ate steak in the last two instances. The others were not so "civilised" /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Ate with the natives (not th' "yards" tho) in-country (RVN) & Laos. No CLUE what some of *that* stuff was, don't care. I gotta say: I'd eat anything Thai folk presented. Those people know how to eat. Even tried "Nook-mam"... That ranks at the top of my "No Thanks" list. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

On the veggie level...

I once ate poke-berries (had to get my stomach pumped - but they tasted good), used to love chewing on sasafrass leaves, and I once ate a dandelion but spit it out.

I love mushrooms. I make little mini-pizzas sometimes from portebellos. fried mushrooms are great, and stuffed-fried mushrooms are even better.

I also love brussel sprouts... boiled, and then basted in butter - yummy!!!!!

Spinach is one of my favorites too, but I'm not buying anymore for a while. Mustard greens are good, collard greens are ok, turnip greens are ok too, but I'd rather be eating the turnip.

Wilt is pretty good (made by pouring hot bacon grease over fresh greens or even lettuce).

Back to meat...
I used to love head-cheese (souse meat in the south) until I watched my grandmother make some... I had no clue why she called it head cheese until then.
Liverworst is awsome, especially the fat ring. Braunschwiezer is just as good (goes great spread on crackers). Calf livers cut into 4ths, floured and fried are awsome and go great with butter sauted mushrooms and onions, and gravy from the pan drippings - MMMMMmmmmmmmmm /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Baz

kennypinkerton
09-28-2006, 05:49 PM
Pretty much everything that's not normally use on a pig for meat or sausage is ground up, boiled, and gells into a molded gelatinous meatloaf (it's mostly the pigs entire head, but I've heard that they actually put the squeal in there too).

Ziegler sells it in supermarkets as sliced sandwich meat... but there's is ground to a fine consistancy kind of like liverworst, grandma left it nice n chunky. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif

09-28-2006, 08:10 PM
Haggis isn't all that great either Kenny.

My gramma used to make hoghead cheese (gawd I'd forgotten about that - funny how traumatic experiences tend to get blocked from your memory!) - AND blood sausage. EWWW EWWW EWWW! The amurikins version of black pudding or something!

Add those both to my list though. If it counts when I was a little tyke that would put anything into her mouth if it was called 'food.' Spat both those out on Gramma's floor!

Haggis isn't even close to boudin. Boudin rocks. Boudin blanc that is, nooo nooo noooooooooooooooo to boudin rouge!

tony barnhill
09-28-2006, 08:15 PM
No, Janel, it ain't your normal Thai fish sauce....the Vietnamese I knew took raw fish, wrapped them in leaves & buried them until the pungent odor crept up through the ground...when it was 'ready' (i.e., the fish had decayed into a liquid mush; several months), they poured it over food as a kind of sauce or used it as a dip.....randid stuff that enough vietnamese beer to knock you out won't cleanse the taste from your mouth!

Oh...nuoc mam...pronounced "nook mahm"

The main reason I want to try haggis is because it looks like minced meat pie. I'm sure after I get a chewey chunk of some grisley part, I'll gross out and not eat any more, but it looks delicious.

I bet the writers for "fear factor" are reading this thread right now.
Summa youse guys is sick!
It's like that cheese that some remote village in Europe somewhere makes. they make the cheese and let the flies lay eggs in it, then after all the maggots hatch and eat the cheese, what's left is this kind of "cheese" that this village considers a delicacy...... NOT ME!



Edit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had it all wrong! here's an artical on the maggot cheese, and more!!!
Casu Marzu (aka Maggot Cheese)
Status: Real
Thanks to Mark Holah (aka Rennet) for bringing the Sardinian specialty known as Casu Marzu to my attention. Casu Marzu is a type of pecorino cheese infested with thousands of wriggling maggots. If the maggots are still wriggling, then it's okay to eat (if you have a strong stomach). If the maggots aren't wriggling, that means the cheese has become toxic. The wikipedia entry for Casu Marzu is so bizarre, that you'd swear it has to be a joke:

Derived from Pecorino Sardo, casu marzu goes beyond typical fermentation to a stage most would consider to be decomposition, brought about by the digestive action of the larvae of the cheese fly, Piophila casei. These larvae are deliberately introduced to the cheese, promoting an advanced level of fermentation and breaking down the cheese's fats. The texture of the cheese becomes very soft, with some liquid (called "lagrima") seeping out. The larvae themselves appear as transparent, white worms, about 8 mm (1/3 inch) long. When disturbed, the larvae can jump for distances up to 15 cm (6 inches), prompting recommendations of eye protection for those eating the cheese. Some people clear the larvae from the cheese before consuming; others do not.

However, Casu Marzu is quite real. It's been described in a number of newspapers and magazines including The Wall Street Journal and Bon Appetit. Taras Grescoe recently wrote about it in The Devil's Picnic: A Tour of Everything the Governments of the World Don't Want You to Try.

Apparently Casu Marzu isn't even the most disgusting food Sardinians eat. According to a 2004 article in Australian Magazine, that honor goes to 'tordi':

These are small, 10cm-long songbirds that feed on the island's plentiful myrtle berries. They are netted and poached, then served cold, three or four at a time, garnished with myrtle leaves. Their eyes are black, haunting, their necks spindly. They look like a plateful of baby dinosaurs. You are supposed to eat them whole - everything but the beak - in a few crunches.

If one is going to try some Casu Marzu, I think the perfect drink to wash it down would be some Army Worm Wine.

Ouzo.

Licorice flavored Greek firewater. I've done a few shots of that stuff. Ooowee. The key to drinking ouzo is to eat snacks. It keeps the effects of the ouzo from overwhelming you and enables you to sit and drink slowly for hours in a profoundly calm state of mind where all is beautiful and life is fine. Until you try to stand.

Once, at a Province Chiefs' house in Viet Nam, we ate what looked like scrambled eggs with mushrooms and green peppers, but I guarantee wasn't. Nuc Mam is still something I like, but is hard to find in the states.

scott,its totally illegal to drink alcohol in saudi arabia i wouldnt want to get cought doing so!, yes "uzo" is greek and can be very nasty, they have another drink there called "sediki" not sure of the spelling. but it means "friend" in thier lingo, i had a friend stationed there for one reason or another i wont get into that here, but for a year or so hed asked me to sent him a number of copper and brass toilet fittings,tubing,valves etc,i didnt understand why untill i was assigned to spend a week at his residence there, turns out since he couldnt buy booze hed made his own still,producing "sediki" it could be mixed with anything and could be made to taste like, scotch, gin, burbon,rum,or any other hard booze,well i just had to try it for scientific reasons ya know, it had a bit of an "edge" to it but not bad all in all,i mixed my 6 oz. dose with coke, first sip rendered a nice body warming sensation,second sip challenged my verbal skills,third sip was immobilizing, forth sip i dont remember at all,woke up the next morning in the same chair feeling refreshed and relaxed not a sign of a hang over, i was told the absence of such was attributed to the clarity of and lack of impuritys in the brew, had i but known of my friends new self tought skills i wouldnt have taken the great change of being arrested by customs upon entering the country by my smuggling in two bottles of mouth wash filled with "johnny walker black" that was a very dangerous chance indeed, the only long lasting ill effect of drinking "sediki" was the degeneration of my word spelling ability. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yesnod.gif

anthony....one day my sergeant major & I were stoppeed at a checkpoint waiting for traffic to move forward when an old Saudi man hopped in the back seat...I called the Saudi guard over & he told me the old man needed a ride...what am I to do?

Well, we're riding along when suddenly the old man points out across the desert - no landmarks, nothing but he wanted us to turn off the road...quickly I flipped on our GPS & we headed out across the desert...after a while, we came to a tent village & the old man had us stop...kids, women, young men all came out to meet us & were happy we had brought the old man home...a young fellow who spoke some English invited us to the camel races....now, lemme tell you that's something to watch...you sit in the sand under a "gentlemen's tent", drinking tea while everyone is smoking from water pipes (yep, you can guess)...suddenly all these camels come racing by - everybody jumps up yelling as they race by over the horizon...then we sit downand have tea & lunch (turned out to be roasted pigeon & desert grass) while we're waiting for the camels to come back by....but by then the smoke from the water pipes had me so high I didn't care what I ate...

After the races as we were leaving, I had to ask my SGM which vehicle was ours - but there was only 1 vehicle there - he said he thought he had driven there in the left vehicle...hehehehehe...

GPS took us back to where we had left the road hours before but the tracks in the sand looked like a snake had made them...interesting afternoon, thank goodness there were no random drug tests for either of us.....but, ya gotta do things like that to "feel" a country!

But it not food.

Sure they have. And if they survived, they most likely won't admit it.

I'm with Barry on this one.I like fruit cake,but the ones with the rum or sherry or any other liquour are the best!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/devilgrin.gif But I've found that not many Americans seem to like it. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/jester.gifYou just need something smooth to wash it down with. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif

My 2 favorite ways to eat eggplant... sliced thick, breaded (with parmesian), and fried - eat with lots of marinara and mozzarella. Also, sliced thin, and used in place of lasagna noodles in a big eggplant lasagna.

Spam Spam spam spam Spam... It's one of the best processed meat products you can buy... it's good fried, hot, cold, fresh from the can... and the gelatinous fatty stuff that comes out of the can with it is great too - sluuurrrrp!!!!

I'd have to say another gross (but very tasty) treat is a regular old individually wrapped hot Penrose Sausage. Just don't read the label (for the ingredients, or to find out how long it sat on the shelf of the ancient convenience store you bought it in). What is tripe, BTW? Pork snout, and beef lips are self explainatory - hehehehhehe.

Anyone ever eat an egg salad sandwich from the gas station? - What color was it?

Don't ever look inside a Tuna Melt.

Oh, and I've eaten eel before. - both cooked, and as raw as they serve it in a sushi bar.

Tripe is the stomach lining of beef cattle,usually.It looks like toweling.My father ate it boiled and in hot milk /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/pukeface.gif

I know I have mentioned this before, but I did make some spotted dick after having consumed an immoderate amount of alcohol and deciding to do a kitchen adventure. It was pretty awful, than again it could have been my diminished capacity to follow the recipe. But, I don't think so.

Yep Anthony I soak it too. I guess I should have mentioned that, otherwise they might keep on thinking it be nasty.--Keoke- /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cowboy.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
