  • Regional Weird Food

    Before things become so homogeneous that we forget our roots, tell us what some of your favorite local eats are. Or maybe it's not from your ancestry, it's just you. (Elvis' fried peanut butter sandwiches notwithstanding)

    1. peanut butter and pickle (hamburger dill slices) sandwich

    2. turnip greens cooked with salt pork and served with corn bread to sop up the pot liquor.

    3. cured country ham.

    I know 2 and 3 well, but never heard of number 1.

    I've been to some places when I was younger that had no idea what a Cheese Dog was at all.

      My son brought a friend home from college one weekend and we served country ham for breakfast. He politely stated he thought the ham had gone rancid.

        Did he try it? What did he think?

          Nope, he thought it was spoiled. He was from Wisconsin or Michigan, somewhere above the m/d line.

                  Banana Croquettes

                  Make a mix of mayonnaise and cream. Grind up some peanuts. Dip quartered pieces of a banana in the mayonnaises mix then roll in peanuts. You either love them or hate them, there is no in-between. When I moved from KY to Cincinnati, no-one had ever heard of these. My grandmother used to make them every time we got together.

                          German Potato salad, Sauer Kraut ,and Kielbasa. Stay away from open flame the next day.

                          I used to love Boston Brown Bread. It came in a can. Haven't seen it since I was a kid.

                            Haggis, a Scottish dish containing sheep's 'pluck' (heart, liver and lungs), minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally simmered in the animal's stomach for approximately three hours.
