Try Chitlins

Dylan, you mean you haven't had one of the greatest delicasies of all? Chitlins? Man you haven't lived.......hehehe.
Just don't clean/fix them at home unless you want someone to call the health department on you. Mighty fine when properly cooked. And Alligator Gar? Makes a great sausage. Goes great
with poke sallet and collard greens.
Lest you think I'm kidding, I'm not.

Joe, I've had collard greens before. Is there a different name for Chitlins?

Never had Gator in any form. Beleive me, if I could find it, I'd try it. I think one of life's little treats is trying food you'd not normally get to eat. Not that I like everything, but I'll sure give it a try.

You want something that you should never cook/clean in your home? Try a fruit called "durian". Tasty, if the smell doesn't make you throw up before you can get it in your mouth.

This thread has gotten so many posts I am actually concerned for the mental state of being of the entire forum...

Chitlins = Pigs Intestines, buy cleaned or uncleaned, depending
how much money you want to save. hehehe.

Alligator Gar, not an Alligator, but a scavenger fish that is shaped roughly like a pike, but gets up to 9 feet in length with huge ugly teeth and big scales like a carp. Found mostly in the larger rivers of the Southern United States. They are considered a pest fish for the most part. A few people like to capture them and turn the meat into sausage. I'm not one of them.
If you ever go swimming in a big river and see one of these things, they scare the hell out of you, though I've never been bitten by one. They travel in small groups.

end of social lesson.

It was bad enough when "swamp food" was mentioned (gar) but when haggis got thrown in that did it. I've had camel while in the Middle East and something that was probably dog while in Asia, but "haggis"! Ross, that just about tops it! And don't tell me you would eat "that stuff" cold...... ! Yikes ! Chitlins ain't nothing compared to "Haggis"!

Polish kleibasi with double garlic is like French pastry compared to haggis.

Sign me, Not a Haggis lover. Nick

Re: Alligator Gar
Oh, for some reason I had a mental lapse and thought you were talking some wierd Cajun-speak about alligators... Yep, I know what a alligator gar is. Had one at an aquarium store I used to work at. Vicious SOB as far as fish go.

I spent a little time in the Philippines after the revolution. I would walk along the streets and people would be cooking food, right in the street. Most of the time it was little skewers with meat objects on them and a sauce. The smells were actually quite pleasant. But you just didn't eat it no matter how good it smelled or how hungry you were. It was most likely dog (a Philippine specialty) or rat ( the other, other white meat) or cat. Didn't see many loose dogs in the Philippines.

Don't forget 'er snakes, monkeys and lizards...sometimes people too. In Winnipeg, we only eat Whitefish and Goldeye. The Red River carp and channel cats get picked up by the funny fishermen from down south.

Frank, you mean the wildlife actually survives the winter in Winnipeg? I though everyone there had to hibernate until summer when you could go mosquito hunting. Mmm... nothing like shooting down a 10lb Squiter and tossing it on your grill. That's good eatin!

I used to own a big house on the corner of Pamerson and Evanson. Every night (not in Winter), the Rain Worms would come out in herds. I'd grab 'em, put them in a bucket, and make 'em for my friends to enjoy. Yum. They never new what they ate. Of course I kept a few worms for fishing---in the river across the street. +_+
