    Having just watched Gorden Ramseys F word, and had an arguement with a very stubborn Londoner i have merely confirmed my thoughts on eating such things. Yuk. No Way. Ever!!

    Would you eat them?!

    Or even worse! Have you eaten them?!

    My mother-in-law comes from London and she loves them infact she goes mad for them!
    Just watching her eat them makes me feel a wee bit sick:eek:
    She has offered me some to try but that was not chance in a million years even if you paid me a million pounds would i ever eat one!!!

    Mind you it would be a boring world if we all liked the same things!!;)

    Jellied, pickled, marinated.. Eel is larvely!!

    I haven't had jellied eels in ages (since moving up North in fact!) but I do remember always going down the fishmongers with my gramps for a large bag of prawns (shell on of course), Whelks and Jellied Eels for an early evening snack and sitting round the dining table peeling prawns whilst troughing the Whelks and Eels.

    Teriyaki Eel is also one of my favourites on Japanese menus (Little Tokyo in Leeds is by far the best in the area if you fancy a Japanese eatery BTW!)

    Ranks highly alongside Whelks, Octopus and Sea Cucumber! Bring it on!

    Jellied Eels...lovely...eel is really good for you , low in fat and really tasty. eel goes really well with oxtail and a nice thick beef stew..Try it , you might like it..
    cockels , whelks , mussels , crayfish ( Dublin bay prawn) all good..yum

    Its not the Eel (which is quite nice) its that horrible Jelly / Aspic stuff thats disgusting. Can't stand jelly in pork pies either. Jelly should be red, green or yellow and be served with ice cream.

    Being born in Hackney you would think I'd like these things but NO WAY could I EVER eat
    1. Jellied Eels
    2. Roll Mops
    3. The liquor that goes on Pie and Mash.

    I have eaten and enjoyed whelks, cockles, mussels and prawns but I could never eat jellied eels. Just the thought of them repulses me. YUK! :eek:
