When i was young it was brussel sprouts. [In reply to] Can't Post

I still remember when i was over to my aunts they gave them to me. I could only get one or so down and she raised a fuss. I still could not go further. Although now i can handily eat them.

Fruit cake from ye olden days with cloves and a host of all kinds of lumpy stuff was always an experience at Christmas time.
These days it is turning toward the processed junk as a taste test.. Wonder bread tastes like wet dust. I tasted a deep fried funnel cake at a carnival and it was just overly sweet, oily foul spongy goo Tongue. The processed stuff that is both sweet and salty is not very desirable.

I just remembered, i could not get tomato juice down although i liked V-8. It was very little that i could not eat.

''Sam put his ragged orc-cloak under his master's head, and covered them both with the grey robe of Lorien; and as he did so his thoughts went out to that fair land, and to the Elves, and he hoped that the cloth woven by their hands might have some virtue to keep them hidden beyond all hope in this wilderness of fear...But their luck held, and for the rest of that day they met no living or moving thing; and when night fell they vanished into the darkess of Mordor.'' - - -rotk, chapter III

Poor Brussels sprouts, [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm glad I'm not one. It is indeed a shame that many a vegetable has been ruined in the eyes of a child, due to overcooking or adult insistence on it being consumed. I am hard pressed to think of a vegetable I dislike, and I attribute this in some part to my luck in growing up in a family that only lightly cooked vegetables, or served them raw.
And I was never made to eat anything, ever. I'm sure this helped too.
I have heard some terrible stories of children sulking at the table for hours with a cold plate of something green and disgusting in front of them...Crazy

And what on earth is a deep fried funnel cake? It doesn't sound like something a person should eat!

Cant stand boiled/steamed brussel sprouts [In reply to] Can't Post

But they are awesome roasted with some olive oil and a little salt and pepper

Truly! [In reply to] Can't Post

Nothing eatable at a carnival. A funnel cake is a ball of white dough, i think, thrown into an oil fryer, and who knows what and where that oil came from. They would get it out and put powered sugar, i think, all over it.

I was brought up with and liked the whole gambit of greens including salads. Mom always made big tossed salads.We ate a lot of fresh or frozen green beans, spinach, carrots, peas, corn on the cob, broccoli, cauliflower, squash and sweet potatoes, It was steamed in a pressure cooker and raw too.

My aunt was a tough one, but my grandmother on my mother's side could be a terror at timesUnimpressedLaugh.

It looks like we grew up in similar fashion at the dining table:).

A memory just came back to me [In reply to] Can't Post

of a babysitter gettting very cross with me because I refused to eat the grey pile of cold mashed Jerusalem artichoke on my plate. My mother was horrified when I told her someone had tried to make me eat something I didn't want. I have never eaten Jerusalem artichoke to this day. Those childhood experiences can have a big impact.

When I was growing up, our family was a bit of an oddity in our rural Canterbury district. My mother cooked in a very Mediterranean style, a result of a healthy upbringing featuring homegrown produce, and from living in a cosmopolitan part of Wellington surrounded by Greek and Yugoslavian families.
She found it challenging bringing up a family in a farming district where people lived on meat and potatoes, and a lot of people had never heard of green peppers or salami!
Friends of mine recall how novel and exciting it was to eat at our house, and they all remember the raw carrot sticks available as a regular pre-dinner snack. Raw vegetables - fancy that!
A friend told me she freaked out when she saw chives on a plate at our place, because she had never seen it before and thought it was grass that had accidentally landed on her dinner.Laugh

I often dreaded eating at one particular friend's house, where the main vegetables consisted of lumpy mashed potatoes, dry, overcooked broad beans, soggy carrots, and watery, cold silver beet. Ew. Nearly as good (and probably about as nutritious) as funnel cake! Sly

Brussels sprouts [In reply to] Can't Post

seem to divide a lot of people. I like them myself, but I have found that I like them much better raw. My daughter does them stir-fried -- strip the leaves and stir fry them in butter and balsamic vinegar, add a few bacon bits -- it's great! And more people will eat them that way too.

I love them but they have to be little ones [In reply to] Can't Post

cut in half & grilled with some balsamic vinegar they are YUMMY!

I find that a lot of vegetables are WAY overcooked by most people - usually boiled to death - no wonder they say that they don't taste good!

My veggies are getting less and less skillet/steaming time [In reply to] Can't Post

Fresh veggies are so expensive I pretty much stick to cabbage - it's got some good nutrition and it's cheap as all get out. When I stir fry it, it hits the skillet, gets a splash of soy sauce, and cooks for about 2 minutes. It almost seems still raw when I take it out but by time I sit down with grilled chicken and rice, it's just perfect, imo.

That's kind of how I try to treat most veggies I cook. Just a flash of heat and then out of the pan (or pot, if I'm steaming).

oh, and... as much as my husband and I love chicken liver and used to eat it once or twice a month... we don't eat it anymore just for the reason you've stated elsewhere in this thread.

There are some things here we will try. [In reply to] Can't Post

I agree about the tendency for many to over-cook vegetables. There has to be a crunch left to be right for taste and to be nutritionally sound.

I have not tried using balsa wood vinegar. It must be very light....

:) I will try balsamic vinegar. I use a good red wine vinegar with (only) California Olive Ranch' oil for salads every night. I wonder if the red wine vinegar would work also in sauteing?

I know i really like a quick-saute for broccoli with salt/pepper/olive oil. Time to experiment!

thanks [In reply to] Can't Post

I've used rice vinegar and sesame oil on salads before but not on cabbage. I think the lime and chilis are a bit southwestern, aren't they. :-) I don't think I've ever bought chilis except for chili powder, canned green chilis, and red pepper flakes. What kind of red peppers do you use?

I'll give it a try. I suspect my husband won't like it but I like more vinegary dressings than he does. He doesn't really like hot stuff at all but if he isn't going to like the dressing, I don't have to suit his taste.


I just got some Asian chili sauce, Sambal Oelek, that I'm looking to experiment with and I thought maybe your lime chili sauce was similar.


We sometimes make cole slaw with our favorite creamy cole slaw dressing (Jimmy's - might be a Minnesota only product) and then add a bunch of apples and either peanuts or sliced almonds and sometimes raisins or currents or dates. Mostly, just apples and peanuts. It was kind of a mashup between coleslaw and Waldorf Salad. It's a good, quick take to work lunch.

I like a splash of sesame oil and soy sauce on lots of different leftover cooked vegetables: broccoli, asparagus, green beans, sugar peas.

Agree, for me, liver has been the one food I detest. [In reply to] Can't Post

My mom used to try to force us to eat it, but I always threw it away. Then she said chicken livers are better...well if better means slightly less horrible ok. Nothing like popping a lovely looking bacon wrapped hors d'oeuvre into your mouth and getting a liver surprise.

Close to liver in taste was escargot...not good.

I think I'll go with menudo. My husband and I each got a bowl of it at a street fair, and after one taste we decided it was going to go into the trashcan either before we ate it or after, and we opted for before.
