I consider myself a relatively adventurous eater in that I will try almost anything once. I don’t promise to like it, of course, but I’ll try it. I’m also not all that picky. Pickier than my husband, yes, but in general I feel that I do okay. However, I have to come clean and admit that I am really not into the Chinese cabbage and bok choi from our farm share. I like the bok choi stalks — the crunchy white parts. The texture and taste actually reminds me a bit of water chestnuts. But the leafy part? Not so much. And the Chinese cabbage? Not at all. The flavor is so much stronger than I expected raw, and I didn’t like the texture in the stir-fry I made for lunch. I feel guilty, like I should like these things because they’re so beautiful and healthful. But the fact is, I just don’t like them one bit. Drew isn’t so crazy either.
So I don’t know what to do with them now. I might leave a few stalks out for the bunny that has been hanging out around the house and see if he might enjoy them. I hate wasting food, but I guess on the bright side, if we end up not eating them, at least they’ll be feeding our compost bin which will provide great fertilizer for our plants. What are some things you feel like you should like, but you just don’t?
