Huitlacoche is a Mexican specialty

Corn began to be grown in this area more than 7,000 years ago, so it is not surprising that Mexicans prepare it “in hundreds of ways” and one of them is a hit.

This Mexican specialty is corn infected with fungi. Infected grains grow into some mushroom-like formations, and the fruits are harvested after the ripening process is complete. They are prepared by cooking and taking on a woody, earthy taste and are usually eaten with sausages.

Balut is a specialty of Southeast Asia

In many countries of the world, eggs are a great choice for breakfast, but balut is prepared only in Southeast Asia. This is one of the favorite specialties, and it is a boiled duck embryo, served in a shell.

It is eaten by breaking the shell, as when eating a boiled egg, and then sprinkling the boiled cub with various spices.

Coarse sea salt is most often used, which is given to you with balut, but it can also be vinegar with chili peppers and crushed onions. In Vietnam, the Philippines and other countries in the area, this is a specialty that is said to be especially healthy for children.

For Westerners, this dish is completely unacceptable and they can’t even try it.

Fake morel is a Finnish specialty

Fake morel is a Finnish specialty

Fake spruces have a sweet maple syrup-like taste. They are very tasty, so many people do not care that they risk their lives by consuming this type of mushroom. It is banned in most European countries, except in Finland. It is considered a delicacy here.

As with fugu fish, extremely skillful and precise handling is necessary to eliminate the main sources of toxins. Before use, this specialty is usually dried and cooked at least twice, in order to remove all toxins. Even then, not all the toxins it contains will be removed.

The side effects of consuming this food are quite unpleasant. The most harmless are stomach cramps and diarrhea, and further more dangerous, all the way to death in people with excessive metabolic sensitivity to this food.

In Finland, they say that they practice active education in terms of proper handling of this mushroom, and that so far they have not had any deaths, not even poisoning.

The prepared specialty from this mushroom is usually eaten with risotto or pasta.
