You may recall the legendary mustard thread. I'm still getting fan letters from that one. Please, Please stop writing me hepcat.

Number two would be refried beans.

Three: Sour Cream.

Both are tied to the context of Mexican food.  Not sure how I ate Mexican with out sour cream all these years. NOM NOM!

I don't know if it's the mustard or the refried beans, ATB, but something is affecting your ability to put a cohesive sentence together!

PeteRock's Brussels Sprouts:

- Cut package of bacon into lardons (strips), render over medium heat
- Remove bacon when crispy, leave bacon fat in pan
- Add two diced shallots to pan, cook for a minute or two
- Trim and quarter two pounds of brussels sprouts
- Turn up heat, add brussels sprouts to hot grease and caramelize until beautifully brown on all sides (shallots will continue to cook)
- Season with salt and pepper, add five or six ounces of white wine/chicken stock/beer/red wine/etc (your choice), cover, turn down heat and simmer for five or so minutes
- Return crispy bacon to pan, serve

There are a number of veggies that I used to not like at all that I do like in combination with other things now.  For example, olives.  I like them on some pizzas and sandwiches but I still have zero interest in eating one plain.

I can't really think of anything that went from hate or dislike to wanting to eat it plain because I like the taste.

I guess I'm a bit backwards here.  I liked far more things in the past than I like now. Every now and then I'll eat something I know I used to like and just be 'eh, no thanks'.  Green and Black Olives and Tomatoes are a few.

-Pickles (though I still skip them on sandwiches/burgers, I like a good dill pickle spear now)
-Relish
-Broccoli (still can't stand cauliflower)
-Korean Pickled Tiny Sardines (not sure of the real name -- they look disgusting, but if the spicy red sauce is right, they're surprisingly delicious. Just don't look at the tiny eyeballs as you eat them  icon_razz)
-Sauerkrat (if on a hot dog or Italian sausage)
sushi in general
-1% fat milk (a recent revelation -- I've drunk 2% fat milk for decades, but they seem to have somehow improved the taste of 1% to the point I like it).

A friend of mine had this theory that as your taste buds get older and "decay," certain things whose taste you couldn't stand in your youth sort of transform into something you can stand or even like.

Sauerkraut on an Italian sausage?  Dude, you put onions, green peppers, marinara sauce and/or cheese on those, not sauerkraut!  That goes on bratwurst or polish boys!

It's true. Kids have more sensitive taste buds, which means that things that we adults consider plain and tasteless can be a real taste explosion for them, and things they consider inedible can be extremely tasty for us.

Also, this thread title makes me cringe every time I see it. That poor grammar...

  • Spicy foods in general.  I grew up in Colombia, where the cuisine is very mild spice-wise.
  • Onions on burgers
  • Stir fry and other Asian dishes that are loaded with vegetables.

I think 3 examples are enough. Next joke...

I can eat Dannon's low fat Yogurt now. Except for the vanilla...that's gross. Blueberry is yummy, but rare.

Ate some 'real' yogurt this hippie chick I knew it '72 was, uh, growing? cultivating? Sweet heavens that was the most god-awful stuff I ever put in my mouth.

I had a fierce sweet tooth as a child. Now I like spicy, earthy, and bitter flavors and very rarely eat sweets. The decaying taste bud theory sounds plausible to me.

Yogurt
Tomatoes (Raw)  - I never could stand the texture/flavor, though I loved Salsa, and Marinara sauce, etc..  I can now do tomatoes on a sandwich/burger, and sometimes in a salad (though too much still makes me gag).

The only thing I can really think of is mushrooms. I absolutely hated them as a kid, would not eat them. It was weird how my love of mushrooms came about.

I was in Germany on an high school exchange student trip, and pretty much starving. I really didn't like the German food and was mainly living off bread. The German kids I was hanging out with decided to order pizza and got one with nothing but mushrooms on it. Big giant sliced portabello mushrooms.

I was so hungry, and not wanting to be rude, that I just said to hell with it, I'm eating them. When I got back to the states I started ordering them on pizza, and that led to just loving them in general - fried, on salads, on pizza, in spaghetti sauce, on hamburgers, etc.

So my advice is that if you really hate something and want to learn to like it, starve yourself!
