Serious Eats: Talk
My entire childhood I was TERRIFIED of spinach. It scared the buhjeezis out of me. The opening of the can... the smell that came from the can... the used up looking spinach inside... it really did not look like something I wanted to eat. It wasn't until college that I finally brought myself to eat spinach at a friend's house. Her mother had cleaned fresh spinach, wilted it with a little garlic and chili oil, and that was it. After that moment, I decided that canning spinach should be punishable by a swift kick to each shin with steel-toed boots.
What do people do to food that you think should be punishable? What punishment would you give for the action? What terrible thing that people do to food should be punishable by a dropkick to the groin?
