Is there a food you simply detest?

No matter how it's prepared or how many times you've tried it, is there one food (cheese, tomatoes, pickles, etc.) that you just can't stand?

I can't stand water chestnuts. They taste like raw potatoes to me. I always pick them out of my stir fry and soup and give them to my husband.

I love water chestnuts! They give such a great crunch to oriental dishes. I even like them in tuna casserole.

You don't mention what region you're in. I've never heard of the foods that you mentioned above. Sounds like you're a non-traditional girl.

Green Peas - Yucky green vegetable
Ugh...my Mom used to cook liver all the time when we were growing up because it was inexpensive and healthy. What made matters worse is she loved green peas. ANother food I absolutely loathed. It used to try and eat both with a heaping spoon of mash potatos but it really didn't help.

It looks like liver is taking a hit in this topic! I know there are many people who don't like peas, either. I don't think I've ever met anyone who doesn't like mashed potatoes!

Artichokes. Yuck. Just the texture alone makes me want to gag. :)

Have you ever tried a fresh steamed one? These are really good and vary much from the ones you buy in a can or a jar. Those are just the artichoke hearts. But the tips of the leaves off a fresh one are great dipped in butter and salt, or some people use mayo.

Liver is actually very tasty. I think it's the fact that it's an animal organ that turns people off and sets them determined not to try/like it. Thanks for sharing.

I can't stand liver. Just the smell makes me want to gag. My mother used to make us eat it when we were kids. No matter how small I cut it, it seemed to keep growing bigger the more I chewed and no matter how much mashed potatoes were surrounding it, I could never get it to go down and stay there. Talk about gross!
