Commercial selling horse meat, ARE YOU KIDDING ME! - Page 2

post #31 of 32

My inlaws are Dutch and in Holland horsemeat is considered a delicacy.  Way back when we were dating the other half took me to his parents for lunch and they usually had Dutch soup and sandwiches family style and on the table was this meat I'd never seen before so I took a slice of it and made a sandwich with it.  My future parents in law looked a a bhit surprised when I took it and wouldn't tell me what it was until i had eaten it.  It was OK... a little too salty for my liking and it didn't even phase me when they told me it was horsemeat.  I wouldn't buy it as sandwich meat but well to each his or her own...

OK ... where am I going?.. and WHY am I in this handbasket??

@ Leeniek,

Where in Holland are your inlaws from?

I am born and raised in the Netherlands and although I have eaten horse meat (didn't like it much, too sweet) it is not normally eaten. You won't see it at the butchers and supermarkets.

It's a bit more normal to eat it in Belgium, but even there it is not common.

I don't have a mental block eating it, I don't think a horse is more cuddly than a lamb and I eat, no actually love, lamb.licklips.gif

Anyway, each to their own, but I don't really understand why eating horse would be worse than eating pig or cow.

Not in a hurry to eat my 2 jack russell's though. Not enough meat on them (just kidding!)
