I'm sitting here, eating a little bowl of gizzards, and wondering why I don't have to fight anyone else in the house for them. I love 'em. Love the flavor, the texture, everything. Yum.
And yet, I can bear to eat only the mildest of cheeses - cream cheese, american, cheddar, mozzarella, some fresh parmesan and some provolone...even swiss is a bit much for me, and the stuff with mold - forget it!!
Liver? NO. Liverwurst? Oh YEAH. I can't explain it, but that's how it is for me.
I love reading old 'farm' cookbooks, with recipes for all the parts of animals I wouldn't dream of eating. Scrambled eggs and brains (my aunt makes this, and the smell is enough to scare me off, but they really like it), scrapple, head cheese. I know people who LOVE this stuff. So far, I've been too chicken to give it a try.
Speaking of chicken...the gizzards are gone. What are your 'fear factor' foods?
