The Inquiring Photographer

What’s the strangest food you’ve ever eaten?
The strangest food I’ve eaten is a peanut butter and sunnyside up egg sandwich. I don’t eat it as often as I’d like to.
The strangest food I’ve eaten is bitter melon. It is an acquired taste and is enjoyed primarily in Asian and South American countries. The color and consistency of bitter melon are like celery. The outside is bumpy. The inside is fibrous with seeds like lima beans. My father was from Suriname. He would prepare bitter melon with a type of Chinese sausage and serve it over rice.
LYNN DECKER AND ANDREW FROTHINGHAM
Lynn: The strangest food I’ve ever eaten …thimbleberries. They are grown on the Oregon coast and are related to raspberries.
Andrew: I once had a nutrition bar made with crickets and grasshoppers.
