    I would also bury that deep in the back field, then pray no poor unfortunate animal would get ahold of it.

    With all of Big Rockpile's recent unusual (and dare I say downright disgusting) food threads; I still cannot figure out if he really eats this stuff, or if he is just having a lot of fun thinking up as many off-beat foods as he can.

    May I suggest a New Year's Eve menu for you:

    appetizer: chitlins

    soup: cream of head cheese

    first course: haggis, on a bed of fresh greens

    palate cleanser: blood pudding sorbet

    second course: lutefisk on wooden trencher plate (you may eat the trencher instead of the lutefisk)

    dessert:chocolate covered scrapple drizzled with a caramel glaze, and served with freshly whipped cream

    May 2005 be a good one for you, newengland

    Nothing quite like a good black pudding fry-up breakfast. Some of the best eating I had while in the UK. So long as it is a good quality black pudding it makes a great meal. Kids loved it too.

    newengland truth is yes I do eat this stuff.Most of it I learned from people that lived durring the Depression,they saved every little thing they could.Some things just seem silly now days like keeping Wrapping Paper off Presents,or reusing Cards.These people think we are so wasteful now days and in some ways they are right.

    Some things people find disgusting now days say they would never eat it,I remember seeing it in the Store and Butcher Shop when I was a kid.

    Big Rockpile, you really did NOT just say here that you went after RATS, did you? :eek:

    Are you talking the ugly rodent things with the naked tails that are just ...disgusting? :eek:

    no better or worse then possum..rats I bet are less fatty. Squirrel or Raccoon.

    Rabbits are rodents.

    Not much blood from rats I bet. Of course if there are a lot of rats might make for lots of blood. Rat Chili? Rat Kabobs?

    Recipes! we need recipes!

    :haha:

    Ewww. Eww, eww, eww.

    Sorry -- no can do. Have tried it, thought it was the most disgusting thing I'd ever tasted.... THEN I found out what it was.

    Grew up eating black pudding, head cheese and tongue. Standard fare in the U.K. I'll pass on the rats though :no:

    Somehow, I suspect that tree rats are opossums.

    Tree rats are squirrels. They make pretty good gumbo. Racoon is good too if you get a young fat one.
    After seeing a possum walk out of the inside of a two-week old cow carcass I can't bring myself to try one. But blood pudding and regular rats? Big Rockpile you are grossin' me out!

    blood pudding?

    gross, gross, gross

    yuck, nasty, gross

    tried it once in Romania...along with a lot of other really disgusting things like crap eggs (they spell it crap, we spell it carp, I kid you not) served raw mixed with mayonaise and served on bread

    nope, sorry
    I will keep my fried tripe, but no thank you, I'll pass on the blood pudding
