« on: June 08, 2009, 21:03 »
Am I the only person who thinks rocket is absolutely revolting.  Actually no cos OH hates it as well andjust to prove his point said to me taste it and see what I mean.  Well I nearly heaved had to spit it into bin.  Can't understand it everyone says its great stuff.  Didn't taste peppery at all either.  It was Mr fothergills 'Rocket cultivated'.

Have to agree.  I've had one or two leaves in a salad with no ill effect, but when I grew some it tasted like soap.  Yuk.

You have to eat it young....once its been growing for a while it is a strong 'acquired' taste...a little goes a long way then, but young i could eat bunches or the stuff :D
Mind you i can't stand coriander and most people think that's luverly :tongue2: tastes like dust to me yuk :lol:

Maybe I ate it when it was too old, but it really put me off.  More Imperial Leather than Black Pepper. ::)

No the rocket is young but could have been a random weed.  Know what on line it says in rare cases can cause an alllergic raction, don't say that on the packet.  Wasn't in the least spicey.  Soap taste maybe.
