Odd or Strange food...

#1 Unread post by dr_bar » Sun Apr 19, 2009 4:42 pm

I was at Costco the other day and just had to try the spray on pancake and waffle batter. Worked and tasted well too.

Lets see... aluminum foil sheet over charcoal briquettes on an improvised fire ring. I don't think I could turn them with my hunting knife, like I can with the eggs.

Wonder if you tried spraying the dough on a stick if you could roast them over the fire and have a pancake roast? :D

Or spray 'em around a hotdog, put it all on a stick, roast it, and viola! you have pancake-dog-on-a-stick!

Leave the little hotdoggy ends sticking out, and you have pig-in-a-pancake-blanket! On a stick!!

Oh, the camp cuisine is just rockin' . . . :angel:

i like how the batter is advertised as being organic. is the propellant in the can organic as well? interesting :lol:

back on the original subject - last night i was over at my wife's cousin's house and his girlfriend had sent him a package of stuff from japan. tried what appeared to be squid jerky (nauseating), sesame and teriyaki coated fish spines/skin/something crunchy (interesting to say the least), and different versions of american candy bars (strawberry kit-kats, ect...)

that was enough experimental cuisine to last me a while.

I bought a bag of wholemeal Kamut flour last week. Kamut is an ancient, largely unmodified form of wheat - grown historically in Egypt. I made pancakes with it. They were among the most delicious, buttery-tasting pancakes I think I have ever eaten. The flour is incredibly fine and light. It doesn't have that heavy, earthy flavour (like old straw) of modern whole wheat. Yummm! Looking forward to making Kamut dumplings for my duck stew tonight.

Ulp! batter in a can? Is nothing sacred, doc? I guess not. There's nothing like convenience or novelty to drive the mystery out of most things! :(

Grandpa's Cheese Barn, exit 186 on I-71, near Ashton, OH. First floor is nearly all the little please-spend-your-life-dusting-me knicknacks the world has to offer, and on the second floor: cheese, pickles, spreads, and samples of just about everything. Sage cheese-it's green. Maple syrup cheddar--Mom & I dig that one, and bought the last pound. :D And for Dad: garlic pickles, but also pickled garlic :laughing: . We sampled Blueberry cider, too. And to end our tour: grape popcorn, surprisingly good! Better than their homemade cheese popcorn, in fact. But that wouldn't have taken much. It was . . . moist! Ew!

i lived in korea for a while and have had cooked silkworm larvae, dog, pickled eggs, "snake shots" of soju (snake is left in the bottle to slowly decompose and flavor the soju), and even had a little balut (philippines dish--preserved egg where the chick is usually half-developed when they bury the egg).

i've eaten other weird concoctions, but they were mostly dares so i'm not sure they count.

it's actually a pretty good way to make money if you ham it up the right way so they feel like you're selling your dignity for what they consider a pittance. it's like selling concert tickets. $5 ain't much at all, but $5 each for 10 guys is $50.

i've also eaten carious woodland critters and bugs/insects, but those were most recently part of a survival school so i don't think those count, either.

rabbit, squirrel, grasshoppers, grubs, worms, chipmunk, wild plants, etc.
