    Foods you hated as a kid.

    I was a very picky eater as a kid, and ,unfortunately, it has carried over as an adult, (although it has gotten better). I always thought turnip greens smelled wonderful, but tasted awful. Since they smelled so good, I'd take a bite and shiver with disgust. Relatives would laugh at me, but it worked because one day they just tasted great, and I love them now.

    What food(s) did you hate as a kid and love, (or like ), now?

    Or vise versa...

      Funny. I liked mushrooms when I was younger. But not for the taste. 🤔😳
      Still don’t like the taste. 😁

      I don't remember ever seeing a mushroom on the table as a kid.

    Also fish. Slowly I’m getting better on this. That said when given the option to order steak or a lobster I’m going steak 🥩 every time.

      Canned spinach. My ma was not a very good cook. She was not at her mothers side when cookin was goin on. Lots of canned vegetables & spinach was the most memorable. Wonder if they still make it.

        Any canned veggie. I too grew up on them. Can't stand walking by them in the grocery aisle.

        I guess that I was fortunate then. Both my parents were raised on farms and we always had a garden. Fresh or home canned always...
        And I eat more different veggies now 'cause my parents did not grow some types of veggies.

        Mom overcooked the beef liver, but it wasn't bad. I like it cooked right now. She made chicken livers that I loved and can't come close to!

        I hated liver as a kid & I still can't eat it.

      My mom was a great cook for some things, just terrible for others. One of the bad ones when I was a kid was pork chop suey. She used what had to be the cheapest, fattiest, crappy cut of pork on earth. Then she would cook the crap out of it so the vegetables were pure mush. The result was simply awful. So for years and years I swore I didn’t like Chinese food. Then when I was in my early 20’s I was introduced to quality Chinese eats. A revelation. I have loved it since.

          Beef tongue is terrific. Talk about beefy flavor. I love it. Oh and I love eggs too.

          Last week I made beef tongue for the first time in my life. I can't say I will make it again.
          Not for me.

        Raw Cheese. It has taken over 50 years for me to eat a chunk of raw cheese. Not talking American. I still won't try that raw, but the stinky stuff... Gawsh, I can't get enough of it now! Turnip greens? Not sure what your problem is. Makes me think differently of you now!

            Peas and asparagus, my Mom would not let me leave the table until my plate was clean. Somehow she always found out when she washed my clothes. Still don’t care for peas much unless it’s split pea soup. Love asparagus.

              I’m with you SMOKIN fool. Asparagus tossed in oil/S&o, and garlic on the grill. Oh yeah. I do sprouts with the same oil etc toss and a touch of balsamic vinegar. In the smoker until tender. Yum.

              I too tried to hid my veggie in my clothes. Usually got caught though. The wet spot!

            Beets. Didn’t like them as a kid, still don’t like them. Same thing with lima beans.

            Lima beans and ham!!!!
            My Mom and Dad believed any kind of meat with ANY sign of juice left in it was RAW!!!
            My Grandma was an awesome cook.
            Liver and onions in a white sauce was her specialty!

              Lima beans are ok with something else, by themselves they are not so good!
