Bananas Brindando Re: Gran Nain, Grand Nain, or what?

They were very interested. Tog once told me how if a tiger ate a durian it was said to be a good and desirable tree. Thankfully no tigers but the dogs wanted the remains...............I have to credit my friend at the Asian market for suggesting I hold off and wait for this batch of durian.

Yep! Think I'd definitely prefer the dogs to the tigers . BTW, thanx for the info on the durian; if I ever get that gutsy, I'll keep it in mind.

Thumbs up Re: Gran Nain, Grand Nain, or what?

I thought it took nerve before I ate it. Not now. My new goal is to eat one where they're indiginous.

Now that you've managed a Durian, will you go on to eat a Cuy?

Fruit vs. Meat. A Cuy is a highland guniea pig. If you can get over the fact that you're eating something your little cousin keeps as a pet, they're actually quite tasty.

Pet? If it ain't on all fours & protecting the house, sounds like fair game to me! Knew one guy that had a pet pig, a while back, I named it Bacon... Yum !

Wow..! Good thing I'm not there. I'd be in prison for eating on the run!

Jack ,pigs are super intelligent and a fascinating animal to me. They are spreading and getting bigger throughout North America.Still my Rottweiler is the best behaved most inteligent animal I've ever seen. Not just because of sentimental reasons either. I'm not that shallow about animals. I'd put him against any animal because of his love and ability to communicate.
The Swiss Mountain Dog.................one out of two isn't bad.

I actually like them, Bob. They're like jumbo chewy peanuts if you do a sort of kebab thing with them over charcoal.

BTW, all, I love how this thread has gone from Gran Nain through Gros Michel to Earthquakes, Durian, and finally eating larvae!
