when I was a child I ate virtually nothing.
I drank a lot of milk and my father often made me sit at the table till i had eaten the small meal put in front of me!
One of the things I remember getting in kohl rabi - a "nasty" vegetable that I just could not swallow!
Each time I tried, it would come back up again.
So the question is have I ever tasted Kohlrabi...the answer is a resounding YES, but NEVER AGAIN!
Even the thought of it makes me feel ill even though it is probably quite nice and I might like it nowadays that I eat absolutely everything!
But I "aint about to try it" - amazing how psychological can affect food
no kohlrabi for me...
Yes, and I liked it. Whilst staying with relatives in Germany it was served with our evening meals. It was the first time I'd had it and I liked it. Even my 2 girls, 9 and 11, liked it. Of course I've not seen it here but it probably is available somewhere.
I have a feeling that I have because I remember peeling one. I don't remember what it was like if I did.
Mum cooked potatoes with every dinner and usually mashed them. I hated them. I would be made to sit and eat mine until they were gone. By then they were cold and hard and would make me gag. I was an honest child but I got the idea that I could reach the rubbish bin if I leant back on my chair- I would put the potato in my mouth then into my hand and into the bin when no one was looking. Problem solved. I don't know how, but I actually like mashed potato now.
Annfi . . .my mother's mashed potatoes were terrible and I love potato. I don't know what she did but they could have been used as wartime mortars!!! I think maybe mashed potatoes need to rest to relax the starch, perhaps. Butter, cream, salt and pepper . . . my idea of what to add to potatoes. LOL
Yes I have tried it many times and just like swede turnips, i like it enough to eat it as part of a meal but I don't love it.
I love every vegetable I can think of but the above mentioned, I just like.
The only vegetable that makes me retch is OKRA
I had okra for the first time a couple of weeks ago and it was dire. Hahahaha. Then I roasted them . . . . whole new ball game. Yummy. No slime, crispy little treats. I am now going to plant some of my own.
Yes Rice, I probably haven't given them a fair go and I think I was also put off quite a bit by the description of Okra i.e. being mucilaginous and sticky….made me shudder. Plenty of people I know use them in different recipes and tell me I am crazy not to like them…however if I mention chokos to them (which I like) they shudder.
PS, fran, I found that i really liked their lovely white seeds too. (still haven't planted mine. lol) I received some free cucumber and tomato seeds in the mail the other day so I may yet have a vege garden. Jules would have been so proud.
