What is the food you've known someone to eat that you find oddest?
According to my aunt, there was nothing Uncle Jack liked better than “a big ole mess of squirrel brains. Cook a big bowl of squirrel heads and he’d sit there and crack them like walnuts. Take a spoon and scoop out the brain.” Best when accompanied by “parched corn”, or corn on the cob roasted in the oven until black on the outside.
When my cousin returned from living in the South (Louisiana, I believe), he reported that they had eaten “Robin Pie”.
Alas, I have no recipes.
This is not to be confused with ‘the grossest food’ question. I myself have fried and eaten dandelion blossoms. Not gross, but odd. (I got the recipe from the Foxfire books.)
I posted under Social because I haven’t seen a good
trainwreck derailment in ages.
