Love friend okra but won't eat it cooked in any other way including in a gumbo.

That's just good sense .

Re: Food items you will eat one way, but not another way.

Somebody's mention of soup reminded me about - clams.

I really like clam chowder but you couldn't pay me to eat clams (or oysters or mussels or any of those).

Seafood

I want it grilled not battered and fried. I love the true taste of the shrimp, lobster, scallops etc

I like oysters...But won't eat them on the half shell.

Same with clams....They have to be ""in"" things....

But I love mussels and eat them steamed in a broth...go figure...

Re: Food items you will eat one way, but not another way.

Husband loves cole slaw, but won't eat cooked cabbage.

Oldest daughter loves spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, and ketchup, but you could not pay the girl to eat a slice of tomato.

Youngest daughter loves the center filling from a deviled egg, but will not eat the egg white. She also will not eat fried eggs, and you almost have to pay her to eat a scrambled egg.

I love pickles, and use a lot of them in tuna, chicken, or ham salad, but I do not like to eat pickle slices on a sandwich. I do not like strawberries, but love strawberry jam, jelly, and preserves (however, if there's an actual berry in the jam or preserves, I will toss it).

The only one for me is ricotta cheese. I cannot eat it uncooked (i.e. right out of the container). Cooked into lasagna, cheesecake, or even as dollops on top of pizza, I love it.

Re: Food items you will eat one way, but not another way.

I like tomatoes on a sandwich or in a sauce like on pizza or lasagna. I won't each tomatoes in a salad, sliced tomatoes, or stewed tomatoes though. It's probably the only food I can think of that I don't like.
