Jellied Moose Nose. Say What?

United States
March 4, 2017 1:52pm CST
Are you looking for something different to eat? I used to live in Maine and I had forgotten about this one. I never tried it myself, but it is recognized as a food to eat in Maine and also in Alaska? Jellied moose nose is prepared by taking the upper jaw of a moose and after picking it clean of hairs, it is boiled and then simmered with herbs and spices and then allowed to cool and congeal. It is served, chilled and sliced. He does have rather an interesting nose, I guess. Oh yummy! Would you try it?

You can have a similar dish in Germany, namely 'oxen mouth salad'. I've never felt the urge to try it.

I think that our most hideous food is Tripe. It is rarely seen now but was very popular when I was younger.

@Asylum Sour tripe is a culinary speciality in the part of Germany where I live. The mere idea makes me shudder! Trippa al forno = 'oven baked tripe' is a culinary speciality in Tuscany, Italy. Sounds a bit better, but I haven't tried that, either.

@MALUSE Simply seeing it is bad enough for me without ever thinking about eating it.

This sounds about as appetising as a jellyfish sandwich.

It sounds really bad but it might taste good. Who knows.

Not quite sure if I would be able to get past the name. I would get a bit grossed out.

I agree with you on that. If we didn't know what it was we would maybe like it

@IreneVincent congealed food isn't something I would try.

@ElusiveButterfly I don't care for congealed food either. Not even cranberry sauce that you slice.

If I had a choice I'd probably pass although I like lamb and cow tongue so it wouldn't be much be different I guess.

I would have to see if it looked good and if it did than I would eat it.

I'm thinking that it might look like sliced cranberry sauce

Nope it doesn't sound so good to me. However here in Latvia we do make a delicious cold jellied food made with pig's head and pig's feet. It may not sound too good but it really is very good.

Mince meat pie is actually originally made with meat from a pigs head here in the USA. I remember my mother in law making it when I first got married.

Are you kidding??? It's disgusting! Of course, one man's disgusting could be another man's delicacy.

It's true that what one person thinks is a delicacy is truly disgusting to another person.

I've eaten some strange things in my lifetime. I won't tell you what.
