    Default Weird stuff you eat where you live

    A nice thread about gastronomy of your own country... things that theoratically sound absolutely disgusting but are actually good.

    Let's start. Most of the weird stuff we eat in France is actually known from greasy duck liver to moldy cheese.

    But there is one thing, that sounds really really disgusting and is absolutely delicious. I learnt about 2 years ago what it was made of and I admit I was a little bit disgusted for a while...

    Please welcome... The ANDOUILLE !



    You see this circle pattern ? Well... it's pig intestine.

    Not only pig intestine... it's actually the large intestine. So yeah... In my country, we eat pig rectum... and we love it.

    What about you ?

    I had tongue for the first time today because it was really cheap. I don't know what it was the tongue of, my best guess would be a cow. It was ok.

    Black pudding might be the only thing my nation eats that deserves to really get a mention in a thread like this.

    They say that our Swedish fermented herring is weird. I have never had it myself, but I would like to try it some day.

    So it just pretty much a sausage.

    I have had tongue once. But it was a long time ago and only a slice on bread with mustard.

    Black pudding is wonderful. But I do not see it as anything weird. In Sweden, we have "blodpudding" (literally "blood pudding") which is pig's blood with flour, some beer and spices. Using blood in cooking is not unique for any country.

    Yeah, I don't disagree. I just think it's probably the weirdest thing England can offer, because England doesn't really offer much weird at all.

    Jojan > Nooooooo, on a usual sausage, only the casing is made of pig intestine. Here pig intestine is the content.

    It has the form of a sausage but it tastes nothing like a sausage

    black pudding is also pretty common here... but it belongs in that thread because dried pig blood does sound disgusting.

    Being a vegetarian I don't really eat any of the weird local stuff, but I do remember those awful days of bacon and cabbage and Irish stew. Yugh!

    Like most weird foods, the local Cork stuff seems to be heavily influenced by pig parts.

    Crubeens are boiled pigs' feet that are apparently to be eaten by hand. Mmm.

    Drisheen is a type of back pudding with lots of blood and intestines, and is often served with tripe
