What's The One Thing You Can't Eat, even for money.

piccola- Chocolate bagle? never saw one tho here in Louisiana tho I'd give my eyeteeth for a good jewish deli bagle. chocolate bagle sound kinda sacreligious lol. Love this thread been laughin like crazy. Another thing to get rid of is that stuff that places outside of s. louisiana call gumbo. tomatoe rice and chicken soup is more like and tasteless to boot. Good cajun gumbo is comfort food of the higest order. Especially if made with a freshly killed "Yard chicken" from my back yard.

What food find still haunts you - that you had once and haven't found since?

Got several though this whole thread is making my mout water.
1. Wolfies resturant in Ft. Lauderdale FL back in the mid 60s made a great cake called Victory Cake. was 4 thin layers of dark chocolate cake that wasn't devilsfood but wasn't very sweet but in between and on top was vanilla frosting that was sweet but not sugary. Never before or since haveI had a cake like that. wen't there as often as I could to eat more. Moved to Oregon for 4 years and when I got home Wolfies was no more. I still dream about that cake.
2. Psole cooked in an Iron pot over an open fire at a solstice party in the sangre de cristo mts in New Mexico. I can make good psole but this was just wow. Hominy, jalepenos(just enough for a zing not hot),fresh killed kid goat, garlic,cumin and who knows what else. I ate so much I had to nap and missed a lot of a great party. (The tequila I drank with lunch might have had to do with the nap too:)
3. Rose D"Urso's pasta. growing up across the stree from an old country Italian was great. Even tho she taught me to make tomato "gravy" mine just isn't the same.

Having lived in S. Fla. most of my life I often ate what was called Jamacia pattys. Crispy round crust , soupy well seasoned groung meat. Yup thats them Havent had on in abot 10 years but the cajuns make a meat pie thats pretty close.

Cinnamon: been there, done that and you are so right. It's YUMMY! tThe mojo sauce is brushed on lightly after the butter and before the Guava jelly. We used to stop there often after fishing the Glades. Was always what I got with cuban cafe con leche.

The best sausage you ever had

Here in Louisiana we have Boudin (prounounced boo-dan). Pork sauasage made with rice, garlic, green onion tops , and black pepper. It is to die fore. The best I ever had was made by hubby and friends in my kitchen.

Sure-Gel or Clear-Jel

Up here in Louisiana, canning is a summer pastime . Been using Sure Gel for years and they also have Sure Gel for low or no sugar. I sell a lot of my stuff and many of my customers are repeats that order ahead. I also sell to a couple of local fruit and produce markets so I stay pretty busy .Sure Gel works for me.

I never eat _______ out because nobody makes it right but me.

crab cakes I'm from louisiana so I get fresh crabs(live) cook em and pick em and make cakes with more crab than cake (usually use claw meat) and an awsome dip for them - shrimp fritters also made with fresh caught shrimp more shrimp than fritter. I'm totally spoiled with seafood and I hope BP does'nt get it ruined forever! and fried green tomatoes , usually to greasy when ordered out.
