Minus the sauerkraut juice, I like all of these things. I eat plain unsweetened yogurt several times a week.

Raw duck liver is a tasty morsel. As a kid and even now I like leftover pancakes slathered in peanut butter and then rolled up or folded in half like a taco. Thick slice of raw onion on buttered rye bread makes for a great sandwich too.

My mom used to eat PB & mayo + lunchean meat (bologna, liverwurst, whatever she could find) sandwiches. She claimed the mayo made the PB not stick to the roof of her mouth. I had the occasional bite of her sandwich and they were ok - but not my preference.

When our parents weren't looking we'd somtimes make 'butter' and sugar sandwiches. These were made with spreadable margerine (because this was the late 60's early 70's and that was considered the health choice back then.) and spoonfuls of white sugar. I'll admit the idea NOW seems exceptionally gross.

We eat all kinds of ethnic food in our house - and even our kids love it. Some of my kids friends have very limited ranges of food that they'll eat.

Nice ripe Limburger cheese, room temp, with red onion slices on Rye toast points....

I REALLY used to like Leiderkranz cheese but it's not made anymore...

I always marvel at who was the first person brave enough to eat stuff like Limburger and sardines, but then you see what other cultures eat as regular fare and it's not so unusual......

Oh yeah. And sometimes with cinnamon sugar instead of plain sugar. Nice and gritty!

I grew up on those as an early teen. I would slice and fry up a bunch of slabs (dad used to by bologna in a long tube) and sit and listen to a Yankee ball game on Saturday on the radio. We didn't have a TV in the late 1950's.

I got a good laugh over it, too! I don't buy sauerkraut to drink the juice btw. When I buy sauerkraut(a couple of times a year from a farm market that makes their own from their own cabbage) I incidentally like to drain out a little of the juice and drink it. My mother did this, too. Years ago I saw sauerkraut juice being sold in small cans but I don't know what the purpose of marketing it this way would be unless to drink it.

I am sure you can use sauerkraut juice to kill weeds in your yard.

This thread is like family. Parts I love dearly, others I don't want to be with in the same room.

Lots of good stuff here ( I love blood sausage), for the others it's not the ingredients but the way they're put together. I'll try anything once, but a couple of posts are way up there on my "yuck-o-meter" scale.

+1, as well as head cheese salad, foie gras, and carpaccio (raw beef thinly sliced).

Head cheese!!! I forgot about that because you can't buy REAL headcheese anywhere where I live....

my Mom used to make it from scratch back in the 60's.....we were poor so we ate EVERY scrap....

Head cheese in a little bit of vinegar.

Tongue ( from a cow) is another dish I remember from long ago, served sliced and cold. It must've been cheap that's why we ate it. IT was good as I recall. A few years ago I saw tongues for sale in our local store....I could not bring myself to try it again.

It's got health benefits because it's got probiotics. Not sure exactly what that means except that it's like yogurt in that way. The live cultures involved n the fermentation are good for your digestive tract.

Funny, but I grew up with a love for blood sausage (and head cheese). A very German deli was only a quarter-mile from our house, and they made their own (but later switched to Boar's Head brand, which is very good). Many people look askance at it, but we know better!
I know a good German deli in Cincinnati where I can still often buy blood and tongue sausage, and I consider it a special treat whenever I can stop in and get some.
