27. Yep. Them little green peppers in vinegar in the shaker top bottle.

Stays on the door rack in the fridge.
When it gets low you just add some more vinegar.
Finest kind.

6. Ah, that brings back memories

Of how nasty cooked greens are from my childhood. My folks were big on turnip greens cooked to a stringy paste. They used to put vinegar on them before eating. Never went past my lips.

I do like cooked spinach in soups and casseroles.

She made dandelion wine every year. I was too young to drink it, but it went over well with my adult relatives. I guess it was potent.

15. The 'joke' in our house...

I could not marry my wife until she learned to eat greens. Sport pepper sauce did the trick.

Greens, pot likker and jalapeņo cornbread are heaven to me.

And I was lucky my wife said yes when I asked 26 years ago.

Everything else, bring it on! I like their flavor; fortunately, I don't like any kind of hot sauce, so I get to taste the actual green.

38. For the life of me, I can't handle hot sauce.

I was brought up in a French Canadian household which was void of anything too spicy. Maybe that's it, I don't know. When I see people practically pouring hot sauce on something, I'm in awe. I have no desire to set my mouth on fire.

I just never liked it, and I hate the burning sensation.

21. Greens always taste really bitter to me

I just can't adjust my taste buds to them, though I have tried.

A few years ago we signed into a deal where we got vegetables direct from the farmer. To my disappointment about half the bag every other week was some sort of greens, mostly kale. I tried fixing them all sorts of ways, cooked, not cooked, seasoned, not seasoned, etc. After a year I opted out of the deal since I simply could not stand the thought of another batch of greens.

It's really too bad, since I know they are supposed to be really healthy and good for you.

I can't remember what he did, but it was the only time that I managed to stomach it.

24. There were a few ways I could eat it

But I always ended up with a bitter after taste.

To use the amount of greens we were getting we would have to eat greens at least one meal a day, every day. Once a month, maybe OK by me, but not every single day.

30. You may be a "supertaster"

Bitter foods seem even more so to them. I just don't like the texture of kale. Plus DH has Crohn's disease and cannot eat anything high in fiber. What's healthy for the rest of us would make him very sick.

31. I think I am - I can taste flavors when no one else can

I am super sensitive to hot peppers and can detect them in a dish when my husband swears there is no pepper in in there at all. Part of that is that I react badly to peppers so it's a good self defense!

It bugs me when people claim because a food is considered "healthy" that everyone should enjoy it. Not everyone does or can eat some things and hassling them about does no good.

37. I don't like bitter greens salad.

I mean, what's the point? Why don't I just grab some stuff off my lawn and put it in a bowl? No amount of salad dressing can disguise the awful taste of it.

I don't deny the nutritional benefit, but those greens look about as appetising to me as a compost heap.

The fault is mine, no doubt.

and the closest we came to "greens" was broccoli rabe with pine nuts. Bitter, but yummy!



Your dish looks great!

easier to scrape into the garbage!

60. Nasty. Especially kale.

I don't understand the kale fad; the stuff tastes like cardboard soaked in battery acid and has the consistency of a Brillo pad. I will say, though, that the red kale does make a decorative garden plant. But eat it? no way.
