    Keep in mind that many French dishes are peasant throw away leftovers that have been tasted up with sauces and other tricks. Why anyone would eat anything that filters blood and makes bile is beyond me. It is a freaking organ. Yucko.

    Same with italian, chinese, and most other foods. The poor always make diamonds from lumps of coal. Some of my favorite foods are the bad cuts of meat that require the most care to make them delicious. Braising tough meats. Sauteing weird organs (though I cant do kidneys. Kidney are NASTY and taste like youd expect them to, based on their function. Blech.) I LOVE foie grois, I love sweetbreads. I like chicken livers be they in a pate or sauteed or turned into yummy dumpling like meatballs. And thats all new to me. three years ago I wouldnt have touched the stuff.

    I have a few jars of spicy pickled Asparagus at home and they are my favorite snack of all time.

    Warning though, if you think regular Asparagus makes your pee stink wait till you've downed 20 pickled ones. :shock:

    You can get the non-spicy kind at any Costco.

    I'm just a spicy food kind of guy.

    Growing up we had canned asparagus. I grew to like them. Non-canned are much better though. Duh.

    If you eat the fresh ones, they make it blue besides a bit strong of odor. That is weird.
