bananas and sardines

post #1 of 13

I was just thinking... what if I, you know, put them together in the blender. And hit puree? See where I'm going with this?

I can see where you're going.... but WHY?!

Welcome to Cheftalk. Lots of members, with varying degrees of culinary expertise - just not sure if any are brave enough to try your combo...

I hope you'll enjoy reading some of the articles on here and looking at some of the stunning photographs - some may give you a different direction than your musings here?

Lateral thinking... I like it. But you gotta come up with something a wee bit more realistic for me, or i'll up-chuck. Smoothie-wise, whos gonna try it 'cept folk with no teeth? . There again you could devise a fabulous, never before heard of sauce.
Maybe a screwy omlette, or a pizza. How about a peanut butter and beetroot sandwich. ( actually its a personal favourite)

Welcome Rab. Look forward to hearing from you

Well alright. What if I added a bit of lemon to cover the fish taste? I think I'll try.

I might start a competition for best recipe that starts with bananas and sardines. That would really mess with the status quo. Any interest? I could mail a trophy to the winner... or a cash prize.

Now peanut butter and beetroot ... you are definitely on to something there!

As someone whose native cuisine encompasses haggis and deep fried Mars bars, I can tell you that your combo holds no fears for me...

Aye, back in the good old 1700's, that's what my family was eating. Well, not the Mars bars actually, but surely the haggis. Then there was a minor religious disagreement and everyone seems to have ended up here, where the native cuisine is cheeseburgers.

And believe me, once you have conquered the McDonalds cheeseburger (so named to stir up righteous ferver in Scots (other than Campbells), I'm sure), there is nothing left to fear.

Sorry, Rab - I meant to reply and hit the edit button!

What I was TRYNG to type was: I tried to eat a McD hamburger ONCE when my family were young. Couldn't finish it... I suspect that meat was not in fact meat, but MDF.

Haggis is not so bad. Once you get past the peppery flavor in there to mask what you are eating. I wonder though, why everyone makes such a fuss over that. At least it is honestly revolting. Compare that to red dye made from beetles in South America.

At least with Haggis you know what you are getting into.

Errm - don't let any of my fellow Scots hear your critique of haggis. We like it and can't see what all the fuss is about. So many other countries also eat a similar foodstuff that it should be accepted. I think it's something that other races like to sneer about!

I think people get too hung up on the name and the ingredients. Think of it as a food high in Selenium and other trace nutrients, and add the cholesterol-lowering benefits of oats. Sounds like a winner to me.

Then again, I've taken to grilling beef hearts with a bit of black pepper, so only the brave are asking me for recipes these days.

Not sure why we get so passionate about a sheeps stomach full of oatmeal, offal and spices. But we do , so lay off Rab arright!! Or the ghost of Rabbie Burns'll getcha!! He's the one who immortalised the stuff after all.

So How are you doing with ur sardine and banana experiment. I dont even like sardines. BLEAAH!!

Just a thought, ur not pregnant are u?

I want to video the banana and sardine thing when I have a chance. Maybe I'll shoot the making of my first haggis too... except sheep's pluck aren't easy to come by here.

If I am pregnant, get the press over here now. That would be record-breaking. :suprise:

You'll never be able to make 'real' haggis in the USA as lights are a banned foodstuff.
