    what's the worst tasting stuff you've ever eaten out of a can?

    mine is the time i ate about two (2) spoonfuls of canned hominy (not cooked, just opened the can and ate it....don't ask me why). almost tossed it up. that stuff was nasty. :sob:

    Anybody that's been in the military will tell you it's the powdered eggs. That stuff is (from 1970) grody to the max.

    I can't make it. Maybe you could save them and pass them out on Halloween. The kids will be so happy that they wouldn't even think of egging or TPing your house.

    i may put it off even further and leave them out so they get some nice colored mold and give them to the local mall easter bunny as gifts for the kids (we'll see how long his costume stays on).

    There is a Chinese delicacy called 1000 year old eggs. Its not really a 1000 years old but they bury the eggs with some kind of cabbage mixture for a few months and then dig it up and eat it. Here is a recipe:

    Title: PRESERVED DUCK EGGS (THOUSAND YEAR OLD EGGS)
    Categories: Eggs, Chinese
    Yield: 12 servings

    2 c Tea, very strong black
    1/3 c Salt
    2 c Ashes of pine wood
    2 c Ashes of charcoal
    2 c Fireplace ashes
    1 c Lime*
    12 Duck egg, fresh

    *Available in garden stores and nurseries.

    Combine tea, salt, ashes and lime. Using about 1/2 cup
    per egg, thickly coat each egg completely with this
    clay-like mixture. Line a large crock with garden soil
    and carefully lay coated eggs on top. Cover with more
    soil and place crock in a cool dark place. Allow to
    cure for 100 days. To remove coating, scrape eggs and
    rinse under running water to clean thoroughly. Crack
    lightly and remove shells. The white of the egg will
    appear a grayish, translucent color and have a
    gelatinous texture. The yolk, when sliced, will be a
    grayish-green color.

    To serve, cut into wedges and serve with:

    Sweet pickled scallions or any sweet pickled vegetable

    Sauce of 2 tablespoons each vinegar, soy sauce and
    rice wine and 1 tablespoon minced ginger root.

    Preserved Ancient Eggs

    These are often called thousand-year eggs, even
    though the preserving process lasts only 100 days.
    They may be purchased individually in Oriental markets.

    The description of the whites turning grayish
    isn't quite accurate from the ones I've seen. They're
    more a dark blackish amber color-- quite attractive
    actually.
