    Is there an animal or animal part you wouldn't eat?

    Even if it was given away free?

    For me it's scallops (makes me gag). And blood (which just makes me a big baby).

    What about you all?

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    I'll eat every part of a pig but the oink.

    So, I guess no.

    I don't care for kidney, and tripe needs to be cleaned WELL. Beyond that, it's all good, and I can find a way to make it palatable.

    Horns and hooves would be pretty hard to chew I expect, other than that i'm game to try most any bit at least once and haven't found any bits in the butchers I don't like.

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

    Rooster "balls-balls" are one of the tastiest things I've ever eaten.

    From free range chickens, of course.

    To OP,
    kidneys, gizzards and eyeballs are pretty gross to me. The first two are too chewy and not tasty enough imo.

    For some reason Balut really doesn't seem Kosher to me.

    One of my regular grocery stores sells sheep testicles. I think they were sheep. Maybe beef. Definitely halal. But they aren't grass fed organic so I ain't touchin' em.

    Honestly there's a lot of stuff like that. Most of it is OK when I try it, but not great. I've had blood sausage and it was OK. I've had the basic heart/liver/stomach type offal but I don't line up for them. The most prosaic, and uniformly the worst for me, is simply animal fat. Blubber or whatever you want to call it. Fatty tissue without any muscle. The mouth feel, etc. has caused me to gag and literally vomit on multiple occasions so now if if I bite into what I think will be meat and it gives like fat I quickly spit it out. I'm OK with marbled meat to a point, but warm fat just ain't happening.

    Love scallops though.
