Textural aversions

t
tinnywatty May 13, 2011 12:27 PM

I've never been able to enjoy macaroni and cheese (homemade or box), pasta with cheesy/alfredo sauce, anything that's too creamy (very high fat ice cream, whipped cream, cream cheese) unless it's in very small quantities or spread thinly on something with a rougher texture.
If I make a quesadilla, it either has a very thin layer of cheese, or I let it cool until the cheese is no longer stringy/squishy- same with pizza. I don't like anything with a mucousy texture either (hot and sour soup).
I'm convinced it's a texture thing, since I enjoy the flavors of all but the boxed mac and cheese, and if they're baked to be crispier, especially in the case of homemade macaroni and cheese, I like them fine.
Does anyone else have a similar aversion to an entire texture? Not liking mac and cheese made me an odd kid!

    I'm just the opposite; I can't handle anything crunchy or crispy.

      Really? Why? I think of that as the one texture most cultures can agree on in one form or another.

        Crispy / crunchy does nothing to enhance or add to the taste. All it does is scratch my palate and gums while making noise. Crunching sounds emanating from someone's mouth are unappetizing to me.

      I can not eat creamy things with soft but chunky bits in them, like rice pudding or tapioca pudding.

        I don't like slimy, mucous-like things, such as: over-cooked okra and eggplant, purslane or natto. Just makes me want to gag. I can't even chew the stuff, just swallow it like a pill.

                      What flavor? The sea flavor of the brine? If you are sucking them down whole you are not tasting the oysters but the brine.

                      I didn't mind either until I had them fresh, I adore fresh water chestnuts- so sweet and crunchy- and can't stand bamboo shoot. I bought a fresh one once and when I got home I spent fifteen minutes looking for an electrical fire in the kitchen before I figured out it was the bamboo shoot that smelled like that. They both have a great texture, though

                  Used to hate them both for flavor and texture, tho water chestnuts don't have much of a flavor. But the bamboo shoots.... crunchy and stringy at the same time. Ick.

                  I like the water chestnuts now and again for the texture, actually. But that's because they are so subtle in flavor. And I do like crunchy. And crispy!

                        Raw mushrooms...spongy and little, if any taste. Sauteed in butter, they're wonderful.
                        And don't get me started on uni (raw sea urchin, for non-sushi diners).

                                Never been a big fan of butter, esp. for cooking.

                                My choice of fat is either lard or oil.

                                I don't even use butter for things like grilled cheese sandwiches.

                                I will use butter if I have to for baking, but that's about it.

                                          Yup. You can use more and it's much easier to spread, so the bread gets super crisp without being as greasy as if you used a bunch of soft butter.

                                                    nope, if you put enough mayo on the side that's going down in the pan it will brown very nicely. it's only with butter, if your butter is semi-hard or hard, that you need to add additional butter to the pan, because it doesn't always cover the whole side of the bread. mayo's much more spreadable, it fills iin all the nooks in the bread easier than even soft butter does.

                                                      I can't imagine it would come out as crispy or crunchy as something battered and deep fried. It sounds as if it would be more like a piece of toast, which I have no problem with. If I'm wrong, please tell me.

                                                        well, as someone who loves crunchy & crispy textures, i guess i just don't understand.

                                                        batter gives way more than a piece of toast, and i can't count the times a toast has scratched the roof of my mouth. that doesn't happen to me with, say, fried fish, or chicken wings, or french fries....

                                                        that's all.

                                                          For me, toast is relatively soft as compared to, say, tortilla / potato chips or deep fried batter crusts. Even cookies have to be soft and chewy for me.

                                            No worries. I'm strange that way.

                                            The though of taking a big chunk of chicken or steak fat (or whatever fat) and downing it like it was an oyster makes my esophagus shudder.

                                              as a kid, my mom would cut the big pieces of fat off their steaks, the fat with the big purple stamp? and leave them in the pan, along with the congealed, cooked blood, and i would go back to the pan and eat the fat chunks by themselves, scraping up the blood with them. so good. (sorry about your esophagus.)

                                                  omg, you totally lost me here. cold meat fat is one of the few things i hate, texturewise. it has to be either hot (still attached to its rib-eye) and almost melting, or i won't eat it. shudder. my dad used to eat all the fat we cut off of our steaks as kids.

                                                  you woulda LOVED living with me, cause you woulda always gotten all of our fat.

                                            Yep, I do not like raw oysters mostly because of the texture, same with rice pudding and flan. Oh and fat, I hate that chewy never can get it to break down fat pieces on meat. gagalicious. I will cook the meat with the fat on it but as soon as it hits my plate it gets cut off, I can't eat prime rib due to the fat deposits.

                                                I can't deal with tripe and other organs, either. But, I love squid, uni, okra, yama imo, cooked mushrooms, raw egg yolk. I can't quite figure it out. I'm not sure if it's the way it smells before it's cleaned or if it's the texture, or both, but it makes me gag. I also have a similar aversion to any kind of unprocessed liver. It's weird, because I love the flavor, but unless it's made into an utterly smooth puree, I cannot gag it down. Foie gras is out, as is ankimo, but give me a pate, and I'm all up on it. Now, if I could figure out how to puree tripe into something tasty...I guess I can't deal with a firm texture coupled with organ meat flavor? I like steak and kidney pie, though. Hmmm

                                                      Interesting. I always thought (pate de)foie gras was just a fancier name or a different type of pate

                                                        foie gras is the liver itself. pate is what you make with the liver, adding butter and other things (sometimes a liquor, sometimes cream, herbs, spices.) and all pates aren't made with foie gras - foie gras is the liver of a goose or duck that's been force fed to enlarge the liver. pate can be, and often is, made with regular chicken livers.

                                                        What mg said. To be clear, I have the same aversion to unprocessed chicken livers, ankimo, foie gras, but any of them made into a pate is fine by me. Just not country style, you know, with chunks. ;) It's weird, I know. How I adore steak and kidney pie I just haven't figured out. Maybe it's that the kidneys are pretty tender after baking so long?

Tapioca pudding...gosh, there are a lot of things that are revolting to me texturally. I hate that fact and will periodically try something again to see if I have changed. Sadly, that has not happened often. I am about to try raw oysters again (textural aversion) because my 10-year-old daughter puts me to shame in her ability to slime them right on down.

It started with my dislike for baked potatoes or potato wedges... the flavor is fine, its the texture I dont like. Same thing with beans without sauces...like if someone put strained red beans on top of a salad or something that would be squishy-grainy. But if they're in rice or have sauce or are pureed into hummus or something, thats ok. There are other examples of this but I can't put my finger on them... but most of the time if I get immediately turned off by a food its a squishy-grainy issue.

I don't like beans, but am fine with hummus (maybe because of the fat in tahini). And it took me years before I could like fresh corn. When I was a kid, fresh corn tended to be on the mealy side by the time we ate it. But I loved canned corn!

                                                                    And I don't like sour food either. I mean, that's what stuff tastes like when it goes bad (not that I know or anything, as I also live in a glass house). ;)

Some is too delicate- I don't like steaks that are "so tender you can cut it with a fork", which is usually a tender but flavorless filet. I like mariscos and carnes with at least a little resistance to the bite, the weird exception would be the tripe in menudo. can't say I actually like the soft texture, but I do love the whole package.

If someone highly skilled at preparing it offered some to me, I would probably still try it at least a few times first just in case it was good. I used to dislike injeera for the texture reason and now I love it, for some reason the third time was the charm!

Then for some bizarre reason I grew it in my garden & tossed it sliced fresh into stirfries, soups, stews - you name it. It was WONDERFUL. Tender, flavorful, & not slimy at all.

                                                                        I encourage any & all okra haters with a garden to try growing a few plants & trying it fresh. I've even grown it in deck containers, as the hibiscus-like flowers, along with the pods, are very ornamental.

He does this because it's attractive and functional and doesn't shade the rest of the garden. It grows really well in our hot summers, and the red variety seems less spiny, too.
