    Im one who does not like long rice, but I absolutely LOVE Jook. It's not the rice, or porridge effect that I dislike,it's simply (in my opinion) the slimy, sticky, transluscent efffect of those noodles. I'm a texture and visual person, and long rice rubs me the wrong way.

    Default Re: Foods You Don't Like - Bitter Melon

    Here's another fruit many may find offensive in flavor: the Bitter Melon, a.k.a. Goya (as in Okinawan Goya Chanpuru), a.k.a. Ampalaya (as would be used in Filipino Pinakbet)...


    Bitter Melon, a.k.a. Goya, a.k.a. Ampalaya

    What must be noted are the incredible medicinal benefits Bitter Melon is reputedly known for, especially in treating diabetes and digestive problems to cancer provention. Native Okinawans statistically have the longest lifespan in the world, and surely their diet, which includes Goya, contributes to that.

    I for one, LOVE Goya. Mo' bittah, da' bettah'!

    One of my first ventures to the Waialua Farmer's Market; I picked up one of those knobby looking squash and asked what it was....the lady said, "Beetermelon." I then asked her what it tasted like......

    She looked confused, tilted her head to the side, and said "Beeter!"

    I have yet to try it.

    Aww, I love scones! I have some great receipes.

    Ooh, but here's another one that's related. Marmalade. Eww! Or any jelly besides grape or apple...and only then in very small quanities. And clotted cream isn't a favorite.

    Pulp-y orange juice is gross too.

    Can't think of anything creative this time

    SG, I guess you wouldn't like candied grapefruit peel, either.

    I don't know if I would like clotted cream. I just found out I do like buttermilk!

    I'm just sitting here, quietly chuckling to myself about all our individual food fetishes/dislikes and wondering where they come from. For myself, my mom was a lousy cook - everything was either boiled to death or fried to a crisp. and all our veggies were from cans. This happens when you grow up in the Midwest where you can only get fresh for a few months a year. But, since living in Hawaii my food horizons have broadened and I love many things now that I hated as a kid.

    (Except for liver & brussels sprouts & peas - those will never change!)

    Ah, my Mom was/is a lousy cook, too. She always overcooked everything, and our veggies were usually frozen peas and carrots, or frozen corn. Ick. If she tried, she could make a decent meal, but it just didn't interest her.

    Like just about everything else reflecting our individual character, surely our experiences from childhood affect our likes and dislikes of various types of foods.

    I have a friend who's parent's raised he and his siblings predominantly on fresh-caught fish. Now as an adult, he's so sick of fish (especially reef fish), he avoids it whenever possible.

    Same for another (part-Filipino) friend who's parents only fed him Filipino food. He now avoids it as much as he can help it.

    Same for me growing up with Chinese food, as whenever our family dined out, it was almost ALWAYS Chinese, either at Mui Kwai, or later, Kin Wah Chop Suey in Kaneohe. Because of that, to this day I'm psychologically burnt-out of that general "Chinese" flavor (no offense to you Chinese folks), save for select Dim Sum items.

    Although in all these cases, here in Hawaii we're surrounded with these types of foods, so at one point or another we're destined to come across it... and eat it. It's unavoidable.

    Rough life.

    Must also add them Easter season marshmallow chick 'n bunny-shaped 'Peeps®' to that list. Bleck!

    While we're on sweets, some also seriously dislike the "perfume-like" flavor of Choward's Violet "Mints" confectioner candy. Personally, I love the stuff!

    WB - guess I won't be inviting you to my annual Eggnog party

    Pomai - ditto on the Peeps! Never had the violet mints but I would probably like them.

    Violet candy is weird. It's like sucking on perfume.

    Many candies on my "do not like" list come from the nostalgic category, including:

    • SweeTarts (I dislike anything extremely tart)
    Candy Corn
    • Butterfinger Bar
    • Twizzler (although I love Red Vines!)
    • Black Licorice (or Black Licorice-flavored Jelly Bellies for that matter)
    • Dots
    • Jujyfruits (although I kinda' dig Jujubes!)
    • Mike & Ike
    • Nerds
    • Tootsie Roll

    ...ughhh, I practically got a toothache just writing that list.

    Oh dear. Around these parts, anyone caught with Choward's Violet candies on their breath, is automatically suspected (whether it's warrented or not) that he/she has been imbibing on alcoholic beverages and has a desire to mask the tell-tale signs of doing so, if they indeed have been drinking. Very similar to the effect when one consumes the licorice-flavoured Sen-Sen breath mints.

    Then there are those, of course, who enjoy violet candies for what they are: a violet-flavoured confection. They seem to be particularly enjoyed in Britain, where a violet-flavoured confection known as "Parma Violets" is available. I've had them and they are just basically just violet-flavoured Smarties. I'm not a fan of them.

    Candy- that's a good one!

    -Skiddles
    -Jelly Beans
    -Runts
    -Any Nerds that aren't red or purple
    -Dots
    -Twizzlers
    -Mike Ikes
    -Licorice (Red or Black)
    -Peanut M&Ms
    -Lollipops or suckers (I do like red or brown Tootsi-pops though)
    -Those gross hard lumps of taffy wrapped in orange and black that the cheap houses give out on Halloween (first thing to trade!)
    -Hubba-Bubba or Bubble Yum
    -Any of the sticky gel, powdered, or hard candy that is marketed to kids under 10, usually in some nifty container, always in alarming colors, that you know is going to still be stuck to their insides 20 years later.

    OK, deal then. I'll trade you my plain M&Ms for your peanuts.

    Uggh. I get a toothache just LOOKING at that stuff littering the candy aisle in the stores. Horrors!

    I really don't understand how Violets are assimilated with alcohol consumption. Besides, why are they even called "mints"? There's no menthol in it.

    I can't conjure up any logical answer myself for the mostly unwarrented association of Choward's Violet Mints with the consumption of alcoholic beverages. But that's just the way it is (at least here), unfair as it might be to this confection. Perhaps it's due to their relative strength; Violets are a fairly intensely flavored candy with great breath-masking powder, in comparison with other breath mints. Add to this the fact that many liquor stores sell them at their check-out counters, often with no other confections available. I guess this begs a question whose answer will be predicated by the opinion of who's being asked: Are Violets intended as a confection to be enjoyed as a confection, or are they primarily a breath mint, to be consumed one lozenge at a time?

    Something I find interesting about Choward's Mints is that even though I live on the East Coast during summer, I never see their other flavors for sale here, despite the fact that they're made (I believe) in New York. I never knew there was a lemon-flavored variety until I saw them for sale at a Pricebusters in Hawaii. I've never seen the spearmint or peppermint varities for sale anywhere.

    Than I suppose you don't like Choward's Violets either. lol

    The reason I used to despise Chinese Parsley as kid was that I thought it smelled like them green stink bugs. ***Makes barfing sound***

    Here's a bowl of home-made Oxtail Soup LOADED with Cilantro and Sumida Farms' watercress...yummmmm...


    Oxtail Soup garnished Chinese Parsley and Sumida Farms' Watercress, with grated Ginger and Shoyu dipping sauce

    and Here's Lup Cheong and Rice with Chinese Ginger Pesto sauce....


    Steamed Lup Cheong and Rice (comfort food at its best!), with Chinese Ginger Pesto Sauce

    This Chinese ginger pesto sauce is similar to the one used for Chinese Cold Ginger Chicken, which is one of my favorites. It's easy to make, simply mixing finely chopped and minced Chinese Parsley, Green Onions, Pine Nuts (or any nuts you like), fresh Ginger and Salt. Adjust the amounts of each ingredient listed above to your personal taste. Goes great over most meats, and especially good over steamed chicken and fish. Awesome stuff.
