  • Argh I can't stand oysters except those ones in a can soaked in a bunch of oil and smoked. I know this degrades the quality, but I don't know how to make oysters not vomit inducing.

    I'm really sensitive to the texture of food, so I can't do raw stuff except egg yolks cause they just tickle me going down.

    • Good. More oysters for me if we ever go on a date.

        I've made a sort of pesto sauce replacing the basil for mustard greens once before, just because I was curious what it would taste like. I would not say that it would replace the genuine article for me at this point, but it was good enough for an interesting variant on a theme that I could see myself making it again.

        It was kind of like a spicy pesto.

The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

          I have never really liked those bitter greens though. Only ate them because I thought I should. And I came to the honest realization that I don't like sauerkraut, even the good Famers Market kind. I actually threw out a few jars.
          Hell, people always say that herbs and spices are just for flavor, but they forget that these have been used for medicinal purposes for centuries. And they are also stellar antioxidant sources to boot. There is a genuine health value to consuming them.

          And I like the spicy greens better because they lack a lot of the bitterness of some of the other greens. Kale, chard, collard greens? Yuck, bitter. Mustard greens, turnip greens, radish greens, and arugula? You don't really notice the bitterness because of the more spicy overtones. Much more palatable.

            Totally agree with the first paragraph. Second paragraph, those all taste bitter to me. Even spicy/bitter isn't pleasant to me. Although I do like hot spicy things like chile peppers.

              I love me some chile peppers. I tend to take almost every recipe I make (self-created or from a book) and add a little bit of fresh chile peppers or some chile pepper powder (I have this amazing habanero powder that I've fallen in love with recently).

              • Absolutely love raw oysters and sashimi. It just gets too freaking expensive since I can eat so much of both. Probably why my wife never wants to go to a sushi restaurant with me.

                Oysters need to have some lemon juice and horseradish though. If no, lemon, cocktail sauce with the HR will do.

                  I have a great all you can eat Asian seafood restaurant near me. If I stay away from the tempura, I can eat platters of sashimi but mostly I make my own. My local Asian supermarket has a whole section of sushi grade fish. That's also where I get fresh salmon roe.

                  I have my oysters with lime and a splash of tabasco. Sllluuurrppp.

                    • thankfully i dont ever have to buy oysters as i know where to find them. i never manage to do anything other than just shuck and eat them immediately when i get home. i have once had carpet bag hapuka which is a fish fillet stuffed with oysters which is very nice. you can prob do it with steak and oysters too. venison and oysters would be awesome like that i reckon. i've also had squid tubes stuffed with brill and oysters with a blue cheese sauce. equally yummy.

                          Yes, on a car trip through the south a while back I stopped at the place where they make tobasco sauce and stocked up all of their various flavors. Chipotle is one of my favorites. The Tabasco company has a whole island and as you cross the bridge onto it you get this delightful wave of spicy scents in the air.

                              Yes, Avery Island. That is the name i was trying to think of. Just south of Baton Rouge. If you like peppers, that place smells like heaven.

                              • I don't care about the science, my experiences have to count for something right?
                                Ah its just not worth it. I should stop explaining but I feel like I have to since apparently I am lying.

                                I think ill stick with only eating the odd thing like broccoli and spinach with butter, with some of my meals. I feel much better this way.
                                Next visit to the butcher, ill get some bone marrow, and other cuts I don't normally get. Going to try making your pate too PB.
