Green Chile dishes

Have you ever had Green Chile pizza or Green Chile ice cream? If you haven’t, give it a whirl for your tastebuds. Try some classic New Mexican dishes like stuffed sopaipillas, Green Chile enchiladas, or Green Chile Quiche. Just a word of warning, it is a spicy ride.

Everything Sweet Woodruff (Gallium Odoratum)

Bear with me – this is fairly unknown in the rest of the world. Woodruff-flavoured things exist mainly in Germany, as well as some countries to the east of it. In Germany it’s called “Waldmeister” (Master of the woods). It has a unique, relatively mild taste and is used in everything from sweets to schnapps. The actual plant is mildly toxic in high concentrations, and while totally fine in amounts used to flavour food, many manufacturers have switched to using aromas imitating the taste and smell of real sweet woodruff. Most woodruff products tend to be green in colour.

Very well known products incorporating sweet woodruff:
– Berliner Weisse (Beer)
– Götterspeise mit Waldmeister-Geschmack (Woodruff Jelly)
– Multiple Haribo sweets (most commonly Haribo Waldgeister)
– Drink syrups
– Ahoy-Brause (soda powder to dissolve in water, but honestly, most german kids dip their finger in it and lick the powder off)
– Maibowle (“May Wine”, similar to mulled wine but with fruits and sweet woodruff – this one’s a real specialty)
– Soda/Pop/Lemonade
– Alcohol (shots, Berentzen Schnapps, etc)
– Tea
– Ice Cream (particularly soft-serve from street vendors)
– Ice lollies (fun fact: German rocket lollies, instead of the yellow pineapple part, have a green woodruff part)

As a German who moved to England 10 years ago, it’s a taste I quite miss. No one’s ever heard of it over here – they gave it out at a German international convention and friends came back raving about “that green stuff”.

You can find images of a ton of German woodruff products below this article:

Kickass Beef Jerky

What else can I say except for that it’s, in my opinion, the best jerky and meat sticks I’ve ever had. Found them while working in a small town in Texas.

They also have a reaper challenge!

Irish People Try a Quarantine Dinner Party

Tryers get together via [select group video chat option here] for a good old fashioned Quarantine Dinner Party and some great virtual craic. Maybe they start early and do a segment on how they made or bought what they’re eating/drinking. Twist: each Tryer gives another Tryer a weird ingredient (like peanut butter) that they have to incorporate into their meal/drink somehow.

Irish People Try Authentic Traditional Chinese Dishes

Chinese food places tend to serve “westernized” versions of their dishes (sweet and sour pork, lemon chicken, etc) in restaurants. They do in North America, at least. But there’s often a more authentic menu full of flavours, textures, and ingredients that aren’t as familiar to a “western” palate (bitter melon, tendon, daikon, gai lan, non-fried fish). I’d love to see the Tryers’ reaction to more authentic, more traditional Chinese dishes, the ones without the bright red sauces or battered, deep fried chicken. I don’t recall seeing a lot of Asian foods on the channel, and I don’t know what the Asian food scene is like in Ireland.

Irish People try food from Publix

Publix is a grocery store that’s known for its Publix brand of food. They have the best ice cream and chicken tender subs, but I don’t think that could be sent to Ireland. But they could try Publix brand salsa, jam (organic), chips, soda, cookies, sour gummy worm candy, or cereal.

New Mexico (USA) Hatch Green Chilli

We use green chili in almost EVERYTHING. We have green chili foods such as green enchaladas, green chili cheese burgers, green chili beef jerky, and a ton more. We also have green chili drinks such as different kinds of beers and wines. You can get the green chili in 3 different hot levels, mild, medium, and HOT. Green chili is really huge in our state we are the ONLY state you can get or have green chili on ANYTHING and EVERYTHING if you so wish. Just thought it might be a fun idea. You msg me if you’d like and I can send recipes or items to y’all. Thank you for your time and channel.

Icelandic food

Iceland has a number of both delicious and horrible traditional foods. Hakarl, fermented shark, is the most famous – usually eaten with a shot of Brennevin (caraway liquor, very strong!). Also in the horrible side is sheep’s head, though that may be more difficult to obtain. On the cusp between horrible and nice is Skyr – a sour, thin cheese that’s almost a yogurt. Then on the nice side is Kjötsúpa, (lamb stew), and then Icelandic hot dogs.
