Yes! Beef Jerky done right is very expensive.
Mack's, Lodi, OH, has the best.

I used to buy Jerky from a Store in Alaska on line. Used to get a variety pack. Moose, Caribou, Venison and Salmon.

It was very reasonable got 4 pounds of each for $100 including shipping. That was 16 pounds of Jerky for $6.25 a pound.(If my math is correct) That was about 10-15 years ago.

Fiddle heads (a type of vegetable native to New Brunswick), and some seafood I grew up eating, like gaspereau (alewife), mussels, and fried shad roe. Salted chocolate from Belgium is a recent discovery that I enjoy. French duck confit is out of this world.

Both of these, I suppose.

1. OK -- good.

2. You mean like this?

I thought of another one: paw paw fruit. It is native to the southern states, I think maybe extending a bit into the mid-west. I've read they are testing it for commercial growth elsewhere. Paw paw fruit tastes a little like banana and mango pudding, creamy and delicious. Has anyone else tried it?

Another southern treat is muscadine jelly, only I like muscadine preserves much better, although most people seem to make the jelly. Muscadines are a type of wild grape. The skins are very bitter but the inside is very sweet and has very unique and delicious flavor. Hot flaky biscuits right out of the oven with fresh butter and muscadine preserves... this is a treat you'd write home about and never forget, trust me!

Mouth-watering!!!

My very favorite food in the whole world: raw oysters on the half-shell. Sadly, after Hurricane Katrina, then Fukushima and the various other oil spills, I have more to worry about than contracting Vibrio vulnificus or another toxin. I could eat it and many other raw shellfish almost every day.

I mentioned whales are mammals in response to the original post regarding Beluga whale caviar.
