I tried octopus once. It didn't sound palatable at all when I first heard about it and I'm not much for foods derived from squishy, inky cephalopods, but the octopus I tried was prepared well and had a good flavor to it even if the consistency was kind of iffy and it wasn't as pleasing to chew the meat as it was to taste it.
Octopus is everywhere here. I've had black pasta made with squid ink too (fantastic), at Italian places. We have baby ones on pizza for marinara, fried calamari done Italian or Asian, tentacles sold deep fried with chillie and onion at markets..

I like the tentacles themselves, the big white bits that everyone adores friend I find boring. They are okay in seafood stews. The big tentacles can be wonderfully seafood tasting.

Oh and octopus balls are an increasingly common snack food. It's not really the balls, it's a breaded fried ball with a piece of octopus in the middle. A japanese street food.

IF only. Actually I think everything is delicious so maybe I will reinvent and reinvigorate this project by using that word instead.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Now I want a kangaroo burger. The question: does any meat market in my area carry kangaroo meat and since it'd likely be imported (I don't know of any area farms where they'd be raised and harvested) would the price be pretty high?

I've tried ostrich and was glad I did.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Yeah it would be high. I know you can get exotic meats delivered from certain companies, it comes vacuum packed.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Thursday was my son Ian's fifth birthday. It was such an emotional day for me, It's amazing how time can just disappear and in a blink of an eye, your son is five. He fills me up with so much love, I'm truly grateful for every day with him. I could never imagine loving someone so much, yet here he is.

I've had bear meat. It was way too stringy and salty for my tastes (the bear might have been getting a little old) but I'm willing to try almost any meat at least once if I can acquire some.

Was just curious to see if you've ever tried gator meat?

I like elk and venison, though they are a little hard to get here in the desert. But, I absolutely love alligator.

No gator meat. Not that I'm aware of or remember, that much I know. I've had friends and relatives prepare a wide variety of different meats over the years for get-togethers but I don't think reptile (other than snake meat) has ever been on the menu.

Crocodile tasted like a robust, slightly fishy white meat.

I wouldn't mind trying kangaroo meat. Never have. Heard some things about it, mostly good. I wonder if kangaroo meat prepared the right way would make for a good burger or sandwich.
The funny thing is that in the past Kangaroo mince (the style of meat you'd use to make a burger patty) was sold as dog food.

You have to make sure that Kangaroo is cooked on the rare side - there's a fine line between it being tender and being like boot leather.

It also makes Australians the only ones to eat their national animal apparently.

I've had it once and wouldn't be adverse to having it again but wouldn't see it out.

Yeah, if one of us shot, cooked and ate bald eagle they'd probably do some time in a U.S. federal penitentiary.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

They say that about the rare but the kangaroo steaks I buy are tender even if you cook them well done.

And yes originally it was sold as pet food only. Then it appeared in high scale restaurants as gourmet food. Now you can buy it every Coles and Safeway in every possible form. Sausages, mince, kebabs, burgers, steak.. and it's the price of beef.

Oh geez, teacake, you wouldn't like to eat with me, then. I fully admit I eat the same things all the time. Not only am I stuck in a rut, eating-wise, I enjoy being in that rut. For me, "trying something new" is using different toppings on a hamburger or hot dog.
