There is not much in the food world that I “hate” to eat, but there are many things I CAN and WILL eat, but if given the choice, will avoid, such as…
I have never liked them. My parents snack on this stuff raw like there is no tomorrow but I have never gotten into the flavour. I find it too floral or something.
Anyway, when I was pregnant with Little Bun, my partner would eat cucumbers in the kitchen during summer and I would actually leave the room, because I was so nauseous from the smell.
In contrast, I love coriander, which my partner will feel nauseous at the smell of (he has that coriander gene thing that makes it taste like disgusting soap to him and makes him feel extremely sick).
Honeydew melons and Cantaloupes
AGAIN, my parents are all over these things when they’re in season, but the taste and smell of them, make me very queasy.
Too floral, I can’t imagine just wanting to snack on this stuff.
I like the texture, I like the sweetness, I just find the flavour off-putting.
Yet, mixed with proscuitto in a salad, with other flavours to mask/cover the taste, I can eat them and even enjoy it as part of that meal, but alone?
See this salad above? This I can do.
I am with Tom Colicchio on this one. Those, and sea cucumbers are slimy and gross. GROSS.
I think someone from Top Chef or from the south, needs to come up and make this for me in such a way that I would enjoy eating them and not think they are gross. I hear there is a recipe to bake them in the oven to crisp them up and remove the sliminess?
I have no idea but I am NOT ON BOARD. Hate this stuff.
