They used to do a Turtle Stew down around Flossie's each fall.

Growing up we would eat about any varmint we caught. I remember my brother trying to pick the feathers off of a old chicken hawk that Ma shot with her twelve gauge. Didn't 't work out ! Another interesting food source we tried was eel. You could fry them like fish, but you had to eat them hot as they would taste like raw fish when cold. In the early forties we ate about anything that didn't eat us.

I have heard of people eating Oposums and Poke Salad. Growing up with my Grandma we ate everything on a Hog but the "oink" Boy did those chittlins stink to high heaven power boiling in the kitchen. But I loved them cooked.

I never knew eating groundhog was a thing? I want to try it now, just to say I have

I grew up in Wilkes and I wouldn't call it exotic but the grossest thing I ever remember eating was turtle soup.

Marmy242, Ain't nothing that will kill a morning appetite quite as quick as looking into a big black pot in the fireplace with last night's leftover groundhog in it.

My food tastes are really bland, just looking at that Cobra whiskey would scare me to death.

Didn't care for it.

My Aunt cooked a Ground Hog when I was young I remember not liking it. It was very greasy. The most Exotic Food I have ever tried is Bob Cat. When I was a teenager I went to a Super Bowl Party with my cousin. He had a friend from Wilkes that was a hunting guide in Montana and he had several different types of meats. I also tried Bear and Elk a lot like Beef and Deer to me. There were I believe Rattle Snake or some kind of snake meat I didn't try it. I recall not caring for the Bob Cat it was sweet tasting and very boney. Other's that I really like that may be Exotic to some are Mud Turtle and Frog Legs. My favorite is Raw Oysters of course.

I'm close friends with a couple from Laos, and I think they've given me the most exotic dishes I've had. I can't even begin to remember half of them... raw beef liver, I think? And a thousand year egg (which was really pretty good).


I think that Cobra whiskey was the most memorable, though.

I've had Boar and Elk, but they didn't really taste any different from pork and beef

I have devoured most of the critters that walk on the land or swim in the sea, but don't know if they were exotic or not. Some of the most memorable were dishes prepared by a group of old women in a old house on the outskirts of New Orleans. What they could do with craw dabs ,redfish and rice pudding was out of this world!
