the only way to get some is to stick your hand in a fish pussy. got it.

Knowing what it is and where it comes from only makes me think it's worth even less.  I will never understand people that intentionally eat fish eggs and organisms that feed on decomposing organic matter.

Caviar comes from the virgin sturgeon

You mean you don't eat animals, plants, or fungi?  How do you survive?

I don't get why people will claim to like caviar but claim to hate anchovies.

I doubt they eat either.

Caviar tastes like sea water. Enjoy your unpleasant, expensive garnish.

I eat anchovies a lot. Caviar is a once a year treat.

A DAMN TASTY ONE. So tasty, I hadda use CAPS.
Actually- lobsters are underwater scorpions, crabs are the spiders. Yay tasty, tasty sea arachnids !

I don't get caviar. I've had it a number of times but it really doesn't taste like anything special. Foie gras, varies cuts of beef, even expensive tuna, I understand. Caviar just seems like a waste of money to me.
 
2012-12-28 03:20:46 AM
This is my last post as I have to babysit a scifi chat on another site- Caviar is great on good crackers with neufchatel or cream cheese, as a light snack or appetizer. A little goes a long way, like 1/2 a tsp max per cracker. One can substitute sourdough mini- bauguettes for the cracks, but whole wheat really brings out the flavour, imho.

Animals don't feed on decomposing matter, except certain scavengers, which no human eats.  Plants leech nutrients out of soil; they can't survive if you just plant them in a pile of rotten scraps of droppings and dead animals.

I do not eat fungus, and I'm actually allergic to aquatic filter feeders like clams and oysters.

I like it on crackers with a vodka chaser. Before I learned that from my Kazakh girlfriend, I hated caviar.

Wow, thanks for putting THAT image in my head (dammit-so-much).
I hated it before, but now the thought of someone having to diddle a female fish to get at her ovum is a whole new order of disturbing.

Anchovies are delicious. I've never tried caviar except for those orange fish eggs that I occasionally get in sushi which I don't think count as caviar.

It helps wannabe aristocrats differentiate themselves from the hoi polloi. Much like the ridiculously expensive clothing and accessories that are functionally no better than items within the reach of the middle class.

You Plebeians wouldn't know good food if it bit you in the ass. Go back to your breakfast tacos and leave this thread to adults.

Most people who like caviar only do so because it makes them feel sophisticated it has nothing to do about taste.
 
2012-12-28 10:33:33 AM
The few times I've had caviar, I didn't like it. But give me some salmon roe with a raw quail egg on top and I'm all over it.

It also used to be considered poor-people food, and was considered punishment to the point where they had to make laws about how often it could be fed to prisoners.

It remains expensive because it is a status symbol. If they sold it cheaper, the rich would no longer want it.

Decomposition starts almost immediately after a plant has been harvested. All that feedstock that your hamburger was eating? Decomposing. The grain that your chicken wings grew plump on? Decomposing.

Enjoy your next meal!

In Nova Scotia many old timers will tell you how they were either bullied or bullied others because they had lobster for lunch (thus classifying them as 'poor') instead of the 'wealthier' kids who brought bologna for lunch.

Salmon roe is good enough for me.

If you want to get really down to it, I'm pretty sure we get most of our nutrients via accelerated decomposition. That's why poo is what poo is.

So, ask a Catholic when the communion wafer stops being the flesh of christ and starts being poo.

/POO!!!

You can do some pretty kinky stuff with a large female sturgeon, some toast points, and a willing partner who likes caviar.

Hence the quotes....

More likely these days would be the ones whose parents got one of our fine upstanding doctors to rubber stamp a disability assessment.

What kind have you had? There's an extremely wide continuum where prices range from several dollars per ounce to several hundred dollars per ounce.

Communion wafers with a half teaspoon of caviar and a chilled vodka chaser (with a bit of pepper in the vodak) is sacrilicious.

Most things sold by the ounce can vary wildly in quality.

This article is wrong. It's not expensive because it's harvested by hand. It's expensive, at least Russian & Co. caviar, because the Russian government has an artificial scarcity policy in place. When I lived there as a kid we used to eat it regularly, and we were poor.

The thrill of eating fish eggs, the cheapness of bulk candy, and the sweet taste of artifical passion fruit.

Cod roe is perfectly good, and there are excellent, cheap Scandinavian sources for it (plus Ikea carries some, if you have one near you). Sure, it comes in a tube, but it's tasty, and that's what matters.
