At a nearby supermarket called 99 Ranch, you can buy pork uterus by the pound. Never tried, never will.

'Gross Things' is a relative term!!

Couldn't resist replying to this thread, brings up great memories. Courtesy of my Navy days, I have had sushi, caviar (from many fish sources), haggis (well made, it is excellent), snapping turtle, water moccasin, rattlesnake, fried chicken feet, spiced duck tongues, deep fried locusts, frog legs, snails, 'popcorn' (fried maggots - no, they were better than you think), sweetbreads, crawfish, foie gras, fermented shark (that was gross), and smoked sheep's head. Would like to try batter fried tarantula, but have to go to Viet Nam for that. Amusingly, I don't consider any of these really 'gross', but have 'issues' with 'lamb fries', tripe, internal organs, Liver (save foie gras), and any brains...

(BTW, there is a cookbook: "Unmentionable Cuisines", that lists 'unusual' foods from around the globe - a good read. Lists brains and lungs along with snails and frog legs??) :eek: Cheers!!

spiced duck tongues
Ducks have tongues? Sounds like something I should know but it's never come up...

Icelandic hakarl. Basically they catch a basking shark, dress it minimally, and then bury it for a while. After a few months they dig it up, cut it into strips, and hang it until even the seagulls won't touch it. Then they put it in a jar and tell tourists (and sailors, evidently) it's a delicacy there.

Gross Things...

Hello bluedogz -
When I worked/lived in Iceland, the natives made no claims that fermented shark was a 'delicacy', but proudly promoted it as a protein source from their descendants - the Vikings who settled Iceland. I saw very few people from any culture in Iceland sampling it other than as a very small appetizer (a three-eighths inch cube), and usually with one or more shots of 'Black Death'!

Yes, ducks have tongues. I ordered them as an appetizer in a restaurant in Hong Kong, thinking I'd get at most a dozen - and they brought me three dozen! The novelty wore off after the sixth one...

Not only do people think it's gross but it's my favorite food on the planet: Menudo. Yea baby, there is nothing like a big bowl on a Sunday morning in front of the TV watching football. Ahhhh, life is good.

I also like tripas, which I believe is the cow intestines but some say it's the milk duct from the cow, not sure don't really care cuz when they're fried up it's heaven on earth.

Yes, I'm mexican. ;)
