    What are some of them? For me I use to hate shrimp but now I love it. Same with potatoes I never liked them as a pup but now I could make love to a big bowl of homemade mashed potatoes with gravy.

    How about you guys?

    AardvarkPetter saidI LOVE broccoli now but when I was a kid I was naive as fuck and didn't like it. Also I liked green apples and hated red apples when I was a kid but now it's the total opposite.


    I was on the same page with George H.W. Bush on broccoli until I became older. But I still prefer green to red apples. It's all about the texture - red delicious in particular get mushy so fast, and that's just nasty.

    Interesting story about the Red Delicious---they were actually destroyed about 30 years ago by genetic engineering. Farmers discovered a way to make them redder and shinier and more eye-appealing than ever, but the unintended side effect was to render them mushy and flavorless.

    The best apples I know of is a strain called the Pink Lady. They are whitish inside, very firm, very tart, and delcious. Second choice: the Fujis, a little sweeter, but also great snap and texture.


    One word: Gravensteins.

    Well, more than that. My Great Aunt took me to the Luther Burbank gardens, and it was there that I fell in love with Gravenstein apples. He said that if Gravensteins could be grown year round, there would be no need for any other sort of apple. They ship poorly, but they are delicious and that usually means you get them ripe from the tree. Sonoma county used to be full of them. It's the national apple of Denmark, interestingly enough.
