    We had supper yesterday with a older Chinese couple I co-teach with and a new couple from our Adult Bible class whose wife was from Korea.
    We had the traditional chicken and potatoes dinner; the young couple brought dessert.

    His Korean wife baked a brownie mix with Reece’s Peanut-butter cups – He (born in nearby Quakertown) brought a large oddly shaped football-sized fruit called a durian [LINK]. I’d never even heard of the odd fruit.
    My Chinese friend's wife know exactly how to open it up.

    Wikipedia describes it:
    In this case, Wikipedia is dead-on accurate!

    Okay, I took a small piece and had a bite. It went up and down a few times before finally deciding to stay down. I passed on seconds.

    My older friend said that it was the best durian he’s had in America; I had to agree, it was the best I’d ever tasted too. :saint:

    After they left we opened the doors and windows for a few hours to air things out.

    The weirdest thing I have eaten was while I was preaching a crusade in India. I don't really know what it was. I guess that is what makes it so weird. I never asked.

    I have also eaten mutton stew when I was on the Rez. They tend to use parts most would not. It can e very weird.

    I don't like Mutton but it's not revolting.

    We eat Scrapple in Philadelphia - bits a pieces of left-over pork, a few lizard lips and a toe-nail or two thrown in to add flavor. It's one of my favorites! Crispy on the outside, soft and gooey on the inside.

    Fried rattlesnake.

    It was greasy and probably because of the thought of what it was - I didn't like it. It might have been because of the way it was cooked.

    1. Kimchi. I tried it on a dare. The smell alone was wretched. I have since had some cooked in with some fried rice and teriyaki chicken. It was good.

    2. Pickled pigs feet. Well, it was weird to me.

    3. Didn't actually eat this one, but I chewed on it a spell - bacon gum.

    Never heard of this before but I'd sure try it. It's about time for me to pay the Asian Market in Lexington a visit so I'll inquire if it's ever available.

    Weirdest thing I ever had to muster the courage to try was Limburger cheese w/onion on cracker. I now love it. Keep it in the fridge. Also makes a base for a superb fresh channel catfish bait.

    Something I want to try. I've come across several copperheads but no rattlers, yet.

    I bet I could cook it gooooood.

    Bear. I think the poison control center recommends its use to induce vomiting.

    It would have to be pickled pigs feet for me. I use to love it. I haven't had them in a lot of years.
    I also use to enjoy blood pudding and beef tongue. They were all favorites of my parents so I use
    to have them when I went to visit. I haven't had any of them since my mom and dad passed away.

    They aren't weird but I will not eat butter bean, lima beans, green peas, or okra.

    I like most beans but those are just no meant for human consumption.

    I see that someone "liked" my post about Lutfisk. Trust me, lutfisk is not likeable.

    Years ago , when I had an old & crummy upstairs apartment, with a few roaches running around, and a 3rd shift job, I would sometimes get home in the morning and prepare something simple to eat. One particular morning I made flour cakes out of some baking mix in a teflon pan that was old enough it needed cooking spray for something like that. The first bite tasted a bit weird, and after 2 or 3 more that taste the same, I started wondering what was wrong. It finally occurred to me that Pam cooking spray and Raid bug killer are both red spray cans.

    I have a Scottish daughter-in-law. Haggis is a bit strange, but delicious when cooked right.

    I eat black pudding regularly

    Flipped quickly by some of the responses as the nausea was building....I think for me it was red bean curd cake......sounds ikky but tasted fine, and moon cake.....which I did not care for.

    Hangi, which I do not like at all. It is pit cooked Maori style cooking.

    Snails! My father and our neighbour somehow got hold a lot of eatable snails and cooked them in a stew. It tasted like mushroom. It wasn't that bad, but weird.
