I’m open to trying different foods, just yesterday I had beef tongue tacos which is a truly authentic Mexican dish.  I know of only one Mexican restaurant that serves them.  I’ve had wild alligator soup when visiting New Orleans.  I’ve had beef heart.  I’ve eaten squid, oysters, and sushi.

A few things I won’t eat.  Insects, spiders, liver (I mean it’s the garbage pit of the body so why do we eat it?) and testicles of any species (because that is just plain wrong) for example.  I don’t think many of us would eat hot dogs if we truly knew what was in them (I couldn’t find a more detailed description other than “meat”).

I’ve found something I’d add to the list of not eat for me: pork brains in milk gravy.  To me this doesn’t even qualify as food.  Who in the world thought of this?  “Yeah, you know I think I’d like some pig brains… and you know what would go well with them – my grandmother’s milk gravy.”  What? 

Also check out the cholesterol content per serving.  Yikes!

Would you eat this?

Testicle Cookbook Update: William Jacobson shared something that is infinitely worse than this, and get this – they have a cookbook for it!  The Testicle Cookbook: Cooking With Balls by Serbian chef Ljubomir R. Erovic.  One review describes this unusual cookbook.

The electronic cookbook contains more than 30 recipes for testicle dishes, ranging from a rustic testicle pizza to a more refined dish of testicles with bechamel sauce. Erovic, a self-described “testicle chef,” also offers essential demonstrations on how to prepare testicles, from peeling (hey!) to slicing (ouch!).

This is just plain wrong.

2nd Update: Andrew Faris linked to “this little gem.”

  1. I thought this was a joke; a mocked up picture. Then I started begging that it was a joke.

    Ugh…if it wasn't that we live in a free market and a democracy, I'd say we need to shut these guys down for putting murder in a can.

    1170% of your daily allotment of sodium? Are you kidding me?

  2. ok i come from the mountains of NC and we used to eat Pork Brains with eggs for breakfast, but the key to this is they must be fresh…i know ewwww…

  3. Pork brains are nothing. I know folks that eat squirrel brains with eggs. Not sure how many squirrels it takes to make a helping, but the old timers swear by 'em.

    btw . . . I am with you wholeheartedly (no pun intended) on the liver. If the body of that cow didn't want it, why would mine? That's the same argument I used with my mom when I was a kid.

  4. My mom's family made hotdogs.

    Always described it as “all the stuff left over– especially the stuff you scrape off the cutting blades.”
