Are there any ingredients that completely ruin a dish for you?

Buy beer. I never turn down an invite that leads to great conversations. I can be polite and fussy at the same time👍


#62

Raisins. Orange in anything other than a glass, with or without alcohol.

Another vote for raisins. And mayonnaise :nauseated_face: (at least I can eat around/pick out raisins).

Raisins. Me too! Especially the white ones that hide in the danish!


#65

Miracle Whip in any form.

Canned peas. This was the default vegetable in my home growing up. They are simply vile. And taste even worse at 7 am after being left from the previous nights dinner (my father was not a reader of Dr. Spock). This has bled over to fresh peas. I’ll never seek them out. I’ll deal with a small quantity if I must. Interestingly I’ve liked British style mushy peas the dozen or so times I’ve had them.

Add me ro the anti- raisin club. It’s a horrible thing to do to a perfectly good grape.


(Dan) #67

Bingo. I enjoy all sorts of fresh grapes and wine, and even grape jelly from time to time…even chocolate covered I can’t do…dont get me started on yogurt covered…crazy talk.

I like other dried fruit…just not raisins.

I have never tried Miracle Whip because everyone who knows me talked me out of it.


#69

Ginger. Lamb.

I’m going to say any vegetable from a can with the exception of corn and beets is a big fat NO from me. Including the fancy expensive european tinned white asparagus that i foolishly tried once thinking it must be revelatory if it is so popular. Umm, no.
I won’t refuse to eat mooshy peas but i also won’t go out of my way to eat them again.

This is funny. We have a friend, a wine expert, who refuses to eat most fruits and vegetables. The exception is canned or bottled asparagus. I wouldn’t touch the stuff myself, and I much prefer the green to the white.


#72

Is he european? Maybe it’s one of those foods that you aquire a taste for very young…


#73

No, he’s Israeli.

Canned white asparagus is a crime against a perfectly wonderful vegetable.


#75

But criminality endures.


#76

Anything super bitter


#77

Rose water!


(For the Horde!) #78

Never tried it. My opposite is not about the taste.


(ChristinaM) #79

Same! I eat around honeydew and am allergic to persimmon, but even the former I keep trying (and keep disliking).

Seriously!? Live a little
