    I've had gator chowder before. Didn't blow my mind or anything, it really did taste like chicken so I figure it's easier to just eat chicken

    Lol, ok so it may sound silly, but heres my list.

    Turtle, rabbit, gator, python, calf, crawfish, and I ate mealworm soup once.

    But, heres how the soup went.

    After letting it broth up overnight, I added the celery, carrots, potatoes and some fresh onion. Added a little more seasoning, and let it cook until I got off work. So roughly 6 hrs on saturday. The meat is kinda the texture of beef when its pulled, but stays pretty stringy. The first and second picture are of after I added the first round of veggies.

    Next, which is kinda funny, cause this just sortof happened, I took some left over green beans from lunch and threw that in. And a splash of milk. Some pepper, and a sprinkle of cajun seasoning for heat. Third and fourth pictures.

    I let that cook until I woke up sunday, around nine. And then I added the peas and corn. We decided on peas to squish some of them to help thicken it up. I also mushed some of the potato for the same reason. And heres a picture to demonstrate the texture of the meat. So fifth and sixth.


    Ad sunday, around six, it looked like picture number seven. And twenty minutes later (fiances plate) like number eight :)

    It LOOKS really good.
    Then I saw the meat and thought of our iguana, Jade.
    I bet it is really good for you though! Probably not alot of fat on it?

    It is a really lean meat, the thigh being particularly tough (why I made it a stew). High in lean proteins. I think its mostly the veggies that made this healthy :) i've heard that if you an eat an iguana that has eaten a lot coconut it will taste sort of nutty....

    It was really good :) I had to make two pots like this because I have 3 other people begging for some. So i'll be making new years gator stew deliveries today :)

    Heck, you are what my mother would call a 'picky eater!'

    I hate to see good food go to waste and believe in 'head to tail' eating.
    Obviously there are parts that are not good to eat, intestines, bowel and bladder.

    One of my favourite breakfast feasts is Devilled Kidney and it is hard to beat liver and bacon.

    Yes, I have eaten brain in the form of brawn, a delicious dish served cold. I also love ox tongue and heart. One of the tastiest pieces of meat is the shin of beef as long as it is cooked slowly in a stew.

    As for fish and shell fish I love it. My father worked as a longshoreman for years so fish was always on the menu.

    Oh, one thing I am not keen on is tripe (cow stomach) I feed a lot to the dogs and although human fit tripe is what they call bleached, white as opposed to brown, I cannot get enthusiastic about it.
    Some years ago a friends father was very poorly in hospital. He had stopped eating and I asked him what he fancied. His immediate reply was "Tripe and onions."
    I managed to get some tripe and my Grandmother cooked it. She had been a cook and knew all sorts of recipes from heart.
    I took the pot to the hospital and heated some up in the nurses kitchen. He cleaned to lot up with some veg and mashed potato. The man in the next bed had been asleep and when he woke he said that he dreamt his mother had cooked him tripe and onion. He cleaned up a bowl. All these elderly folk couldn't get enough of it!

    Attitudes to food has changed a lot in the UK. My parents grew up knowing what it was like to be hungry during the depression and then with rationing during the war. We learned to eat what was put in front of you and if you didn't like it you went hungry.

    The other thing is that a heck of a lot of people do not know how to cook. Sure they can cook the better cuts of meat or, rely on ready meals. I could feed a family of four, all good eaters, for less than half they pay for ready meals and it would be healthier.

    When I had a lurcher (greyhound X dog) I would go out lamping at night for rabbit, wonderful meat. Hare is also good especially jugged (hung for at least a week) with red cabbage.

    Nope, I do not waste a lot.

    We believe the same thing :) when we do get to hunt, we eat every bit of the animal. My grandad uses the bones for artwork and stuff, and we makes soups, and roasts, and jerky, and we use every bit. We boil the stuff we can't eat for the dogs, and we send away some parts for sausage. :)

    Actually lol...

    So Yes I was drunk and was at a family reunion. I have a very redneck/backwoods/country family. My uncles hunted a boar for the event and it went in the ground whole. So us young wild cousins all in our 20's make bets on who will eat the eyeballs. $100 and why not... One bite, I instantly puked. There wasn't a taste but it was like chewing a tire. One of my cousins did eat one. The details are rather gross. The eyeball is filled with a black, smelly, nasty fluid that popped and squirted everywhere And its all on video

    I've eaten rabbit. My roommate raises meat rabbits. I've also had squid and tons if seafood. I don't like fish but I'm always willing to try everything once. Had lamb chops last night. I've eaten rocky mountain oysters too. Liver is OK. Beef tongue is gross. Never had the brains but my grandpa ate them. Menudo is a cows stomach lining and is a great soup when your sick. I like food LOL
