    Following on from the Marmite Virgin thread .....
    I don't eat strange things but some of you definitely do.

    It's not strange, but if I'm having cucumber I like it sliced in vinegar first. Mmmm...

    And it could have gone on the marmite thread, but marmite on crackers with a sweet sherry is lovely.

    Do you mean you put it in vinegar and then slice it or vice versa?

  5. Cheese & marmalade sarnies.
    Banana pizza (a sort of dessert pizza).
    Fried black pudding slice on a fried fruit scone.

    Marmite is not 'strange'...not even of eaten on bread-products with cheese and fruit!

    I have eaten eel....which i think is considered strange in the UK but is more common in Germany.
    I have eaten Vegan Cheeze (Now that <u>is</u> strange...and unpleasant!)
    And when much younger I had a penchant for eating dirt!

    My mum and grandma always served cucumber like that for tea. Mum does it with tomatoes too. If she's feeling exotic, sometimes with raw onion.
  10. Kinsa's OH makes the most amazing pickled courgettes. I suppose you could do cucumbers in the same way?

    I love pickled courgettes, but I doubt I could wait if I had to pickle them myself.

    Something called a "triple cheese" sandwich in a coffee shop in a small town near where I live. It consisted of brie,some kind of soft cheese and white stilton,plus some kind of chutney which was so sweet that it tasted like apricot jam. This was the most disgusting thing I've ever tasted. It was so horrible that I had to stop eating it for fear of being sick. To be fair,I complained and did not have to pay for it. The coffee shop has since stopped trading!
    The triple cheese sandwich has since become an ongoing joke between myself and my husband.

    I love this type of thread, you can aways be sure that there will be someone who has gone so far beyond the acceptable boundaries as to make you bite your knuckle and hug your mouse in astonishment.
    I have mentioned this one of mine several times before, but then I've been on these threads for quite a while, so maybe there are new people out there.
    I ate rat in Nigeria, also locust and possibly monkey.

    Following a rather complicated political discussion many, many years ago with some friends who were equally 'tired and emotional' as myself, I ate part of a five pound note as some kind of statement about commercialism and commoditisation...

    ...or something like that

    I remember a few years ago when I moved to Yorkshire being absolutely horrified when the seemingly normal staff started slicing cheese and eating it on Christmas cake icing and all. BUT..... I absolutely love it not, the only way to eat fruit cake!

    I have travelled around a bit and tried a fair few strange things. Ceviche (raw fish cubed) goat, guinea pig, alpacha, llama, ostrich and probably a fair few others I can't recall.

    Fantastic giraffe! Now that is truly strange!
    I have a feeling I may have tried to eat part of a bucket, but yours is so much better for so many reasons
  18. Earth Worms. In fairness, I was a little girl when I did this but, apparently, I did it all of the time [​IMG].
    Things like eel, snails etc don't seem that strange to me.
    I'd hate to be offered a plate of baked beans though - they're strange.

    Thought you'd eaten giraffe and it was fantastic[​IMG]

    Have eaten crocodile, ostrich, buffalo and various African deer things like impala, dik dik and blesbok. However weirder and nastier were a beetroot sorbet presented at a restaurant as a mid course palate cleanser and garlic icecream I tried at a garlic festival once - the garlic beer wasn't great either. I was offered mopane worms once but I said I was scared - they look like huge fat caterpillars and not very appetising to me.
