Just read the label on the Japanese jar of "vegetable cream stew" I bought for Baby-Beansprout Joel as an emergency meal, and I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the kanji (characters) for horse meat (baniku)!
Anybody ever had horse? It's a delicacy over here, and my husband loves basashi, raw marinated horse meat. Can't say I go for it myself.
Also, if you buy canned "corned beef" over here, chances are that it's horse meat in there. I don't indulge, though sometimes I get my egg at Denny's with corned beef - I just don't ask what's in it. Sometimes ignorance is bliss.
LOL on your sign-out.
I can't think of horses as food! I guess it's depends on the culture you grow up with. Horses are so pretty, it would make me sad to eat one.
I've only had it as basashi, can't believe they are putting it into the baby foods here...wow!
Joan, just doing a little bit of neigh-saying! :)
Reeni, I know - I love to ride horses and can't imagine eating them, but really it's just another form of meat. You're right - it's just what you're used to.
K and S, I was surprised, too! It doesn't bother me and I'll feed it to Joel anyway, it was just a bit of a shock! :)
Ooh! Look at that giant vegetable over there walking around. I think I'll eat it. Yummy!
