After a post in Another Place recently, I tried proper, chargrilled hot
dogs again for the first time in *ages*, only this time with sauerkraut
(in true New York style).

I've *always* detested sauerkraut. Can't stand the stuff. Awful. Yuk.

Except I *adore* it as a pickle with hot dogs. Absolutely love the
stuff, pile it on in mounds.

What's that all about then? I would have thought by now that my tastes
would be pretty fixed, but no.

Anyone else had a "conversion" to anything of late? I'm interested to
see if others have changing tastes.

Peanut butter. Couldn't stand the smell as a kid, up until a few years ago.
Love the stuff now. Especially as a snack, where you dip a spoon in and eat
it like a lolly.

I've done all the usuals (red wine, olives etc) but my most recent
conversion, as in within the last couple of years, is roast parsnips.
Still can't stand the things if they're boiled, or roasted to light

Boiled parsnips *must* then be mashed with lashings of butter and a
sprinkle of nutmeg.

FFS it's only 7 October. Is this a record for the first parsnip mention
of the pre-winter-solstice season?

How odd, I was just about to say exactly the same thing! I've always hated
them but I think what converted me was parsnip crisps, which are rather
scrummy, so I tried a few small, very crisped and honeyed proper parsnips.
Yum.

Conversely I now find that garlic makes me feel quite sick after I eat it,
especially roasted.

Or parboil them, then roast them with a mixture of rum and sugar (or
honey), for the Jamaican taste ... works best with sweet potatoes, but
works well with other things too. Like yams.

Or parsnips :)

Olives for me, used to loathe them, but after trying them with some
tapas I can't get enough, especially stuffed with chili or garlic.

Olives. I used to hate them (and olive oil) but recently I've
discovered that under certian circumstances (when I'm hungry and in an
Italian restaurant) they can be quite enjoyable.

I still hate the taste of olive oil though.

Nothing, AFAIAA.

However, I do often think that I should try some of the things that I
know that I *used* to hate but, just in case my taste may have changed,
I might now enjoy.

Oysters spring to mind. When I tried them probably 20+ years ago, they
were just like eating salty snot. But I love seafood (and always have)
but I might give them a go next time I see some *really* fresh ones on
sale.

I'm quite happy not to try tripe *ever* again, though.

That's a good one - I used to detest oysters. But since going regularly
to Normandy & Brittany I've tried them again, and love them.

I think the key is not to think of them as "seafood", in the same
context as, say, cooked mussels, prawns and suchlike, but more to see
them as related to their taste, ie as a sort of sea-produced pickle.

I also find the *really* fresh ones have a sort of mineral jolt to them,
almost like a belt of espresso, but different. Whatever the reason,
they seem to wake me up and enliven me.

No I'm done with tripe too I must say - I keep trying to talk myself
into sampling one of the french dishes that use it, every time I see it
on a french menu, but I always come back to the smell of it, which as a
boy used to make me retch.

I'm also not a fan of liver either, although I have changed my mind
about kidneys; done properly they're a delight.

I confess I can take them or leave them ... I generally prefer toasted

I'm just going by what it says on the tub.

They're a great combo ... my local deli swear by membrillo (which they
stock), but I've been making a case for pickled walnuts (which I think
they think are a bit common) ... the sweetness of the membrillo is
superb, but for all-round pickle-y goodness you can't whack a pickled
walnut with a strong cheddar and a glass of decent red wine.

Mmmmmmm ... right, well that's lunch sorted :) I'll pop out to the deli
in a little bit and pick up some of their lovely cheddar (name escapes
me now but I'll know it when I see it) and possibly some of their
amazingly rich, smooth chicken liver, orange & brandy pate.

lot, so thanks.
of course it was intentional. But as I've mentioned a few times, I'm
too subtle for most of you, though it's glad at least one person
appreciated it.
I noticed it, but thought it was a bit weak by your standards, so didn't
want to say anything :)
you utter wotter.
I wouldn't even have mentioned it if you and Champ hadn't started
humping each other's legs :)

Oh - quince jelly - yes, that's tasty.

And not a little worrying.

I'm also impressed with how long it keeps ... stored in its tub once
opened, in the fridge, I've had some that's been in there for about 2
months and is still fresh as a daisy. Odd.

Still haven't managed to unplug myself from The Collective long enough
to get to the deli, mind ... must sort that in the next hour. Problem
is I'm transferring from one section to another this week, and one of
the guys I'm handing over a couple of projects to is a whinging, lazy
little fuckwit, so taking him through any document takes *for fucking
ever*

Break for munchies required, methinks :)

No it's truly yummy stuff, promise. It's very sweet, almost like a jam,
but has a lovely, deep fruity flavour (much fruitier than jam), and cuts
like ... well like a very, very firm jelly, so you can slice it and bung
it on strong cheeses.

Don't you like cheese?

Oh no ... hang on ... IIRC you don't, or is that just cooked cheese?

I'm not a big fan of what I term "smelly cheeses". A nice normal mature
cheddar and some odd varieties from around the UK are fine, but
anything with blue in it would be thrown in the bin before even opening
the wrapper. I do like some French and italian cheeses, but not the
really stinky sort.

With blue cheese, just a *tiny* amount of something else, like a Carr's
water biscuit or similar, to act as a delivery system.

With decent cheddars and the like, just the cheese itself, and either
membrillo, pickled walnuts, or both.

heh. ukrm does "what's my biscuit" :)

I like anything fairly bland - I went through an oatcake period, but
they detract too much from the flavour. Ditto those charcoal biscuits,
which tastes like ashes to me. Which is hardly surprising I guess.

ATM I'm seriously addicted to Dr Karg's Organic Wholegrain Crisp Bread,
specifically the emmental cheese & pumpkin seed variety. Banging.

Oh, it was to counter their President's (VCF not the Republic), "this is

thought me a Brit eccentric.

They were quite complimentary about the Halfpenny Green 'Penny Black'
English wine though.

I like *some* cheese (Edam, Gouda, Cheshire, Wensleydale) but that's
about it. I've tried all sorts of others but never really found one I
liked.

I like it cooked though - cheese on toast using mousetrap (aka Cheddar)
or Mozzarella/Monterey Jack etc on pizzas is nice but not raw..

Don't you start. I agonised for *ages* (5 seconds is a long time on

Indeed. Stilton is an abomination of desolation.
Burn, heretic, burn!
I will wear my "won't eat moldy food" badge with pride as the flames
leap higher.
So beer, wine and bread out then? ;)

apparently, membrillo is also referred to as "quince cheese", which is
mental.
Presumably along the sames lines as lemon/lime curd.

I hadn't thought of that, but it sounds plausible.

Them and membrillo - quality kit.
whaaaa....<fx: googles>
Oh - quince jelly - yes, that's tasty.
Goodness - I can't believe you had to google to check what
membrillo was.
I had to look up what quince was.
I'm waiting for Lozzo to turn up and say he had to google for what
paste was :)
(sorry Loz, couldn't resist).
Is it like a pasty? Ginsters only, of course, none of that horrible
Pork Farms shite.

Ginsters are shit, as are any mass-produced pre-packed "pasties".
They're nothing like a proper "home cooked" pasty.
You should be making you're own now:

You are a fellow worshipper at the church of the motorway service
station, then. In the name of the Ginsters Pastie, Twirl and can of Red
Bull, Amen.

Only for pikey travelling salesmen who think that nipping into a petrol
station to grab one for a quick lunch is the height of haute cuisine.

Last time my dad (now 86) came to stay, he brought his complete
pensioner survival kit - 4 pints of milk and a four pack of Ginsters.

Have you tried a proper pasty?

Ginsters pasties are the red wine of Cornwall.

Much better examples can be had locally.
