    I'll go all in on the sweet potato hate. I hate their texture, that gritty stringy mush. I hate how they smell when they're baked in the oven. I hate the oozing burnt syrup that inevitably results from said baking. I hate sweet potato fries, I hate sweet potato casserole. If sweet potatoes were a sentient species I'd make it my life's work to bring them to extinction. Same goes with squash and its myriad of forms of squash except for zucchini. I'm ok with that.

    Out of curiosity, do you also hate apple pie? Because literally the only difference is the addition of a sprinkle of ginger in the former.

    I don't know of any apple pie recipe that calls for cloves, which is something called for in pumpkin pie. I'm sure you could put clove in an apple pie, but it's not a traditional spice in them. Pumpkin Pie spice is clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and sometimes allspice. Apple pie is just generally nutmeg and cinnamon.

    Traditional apple pie? Not my thing. At all. But "apple pie" is rarely added to everything or blow into the air as perfume like pumpkin spice is.

    i really dislike cinnamon and allspice

    Ginger? Doable but in small doses
    Nutmeg? Eh prefer mace tbh and cut it by 50-75% in what is called for but at the lower levels quite nice...horribly overwhelming otherwise. As in painful. In some cases I need a 90% cut.

    Clove? i like clove...but still often use it lightly. Like 20-50% cut

    Mostly it the demon insecticide bark that I loathe.

    I've never put cloves in pumpkin pie, and store bought pumpkin pie spice doesn't include it either, at least the ones I buy.

    FWIW I don't like the smell of those damn cinnamon brooms either, they're so cloying and strong. But the spice is different when ground or dried as sticks. It's cinnamon OIL that is so ridiculously foul smelling.

    I look a bit askance at throwing nutmeg and mace into the same category, though. They taste nothing alike to me.

    I don't know what pumpkin spice you're buying but it's so common it's even on the Wikipedia entry. It's in the Simply Organic mix (fairly popular in the States). The Amazon brand has it (also caraway and coriander seed...which is weird to me but w/e). The Kroger Brand has it, which is a massive supermarket chain in the US and also owns Fry's which carries Kroger brand stuff. So does Spice Island, a "higher end" spice choice in supermarkets in the US. Penzeys, which is a really upmarket spice puveyor that I use as a chef, has it. As predicted that some people might put clove in an apple pie, Penzey's does put clove in their apple pie mix. That's strange to me, but it is what it is. Frontier Co-Op also has Cloves on their recipe list. Starbucks, a national chain, includes it in their mix as well.

    The only big time spice mix I found that doesn't use cloves in their pumpkin spice blend is McCormick which I can only assume is because

    1. McCormick is about as cheap as you can get with spices
    2. McCormick's spices are some of the worst quality you can get because 1.

    Which brand are you using, I'm honestly really curious now.

    Well I think of mace as nutmeg's better half really. Brothers but not twins. And in many situations mace makes a wonderful substitution for nutmeg.

    And I think ground/stick cinnamon to be nearly as foul, personally. But YMMV

    I'll use either McCormick's ready made stuff or just assemble the spices individually. Pretty much all spice mixes taste exactly the same to me, no matter the brand. Ground spices are ground spices, pretty much.

    Are we including seasoned salts as spice mixes? Because if so, it's Lawry's or get out of my kitchen.

    Don't really truck with seasoned salts, since I use very little salt when cooking generally.

    I'd toss you out if you brought a McCormick spice jar into my house personally. They don't even put cloves in their pumpkin spice mix.

    Other than that they bought Lawry's, I could take or leave McCormick. Though I also don't ever buy pumpkin spice mix.

    I blended my own spice mix when I made speculoos. This is when I found out how pricey mace is.

    They ferment the pineapple first. Also pineapple has bromelein, a natural meat tenderizer.


    Personally, I love almost everything you all say you hate. My hates are all texture based, have met very few flavors I genuinely hated.
    Texture wise, my o hell no's are: hard boiled eggs, whole clams, tofu, foodservice grade mayonnaise, and tripe.

    Alcohol. For years, every time I do a thing with more than a couple other people for a little while, including just going to do some D&D, I'll end up getting recommended that I try some alcoholic beverage or drink mix or whatever that somebody else is having. It tastes like paint thinner smells, every time. Doesn't matter that it got mixed with my favorite drink in the world and is like 1% alcoholic beverage, doesn't matter that it's a well-aged ****in whatever, doesn't matter if it's so basic that literally everybody enjoys it by default, doesn't matter that it's essentially alcoholic water, it all tastes awful. And I feel kinda bad for my friends who really enjoy drinking cuz I can't tell if I'm the weirdo who can't enjoy literally anything like that and I'm kinda being a buzzkill for not drinking, or if my taste is correct and they're just suffering from a mix of addiction and stockholm syndrome.

    I dislike paprika and I hate that most vegetables taste like paprika if you keep them near paprika.

    Well, for most things that call for bell peppers in high quantities they're kind of meant to be the main focus of the dish. Like paprikash.

    In the continued question of "what is Rynjin eating and where"....where are you eating paprikash with bell peppers? The paprika spice isn't made out of bell peppers, they're made out of a different cultivator of Annum which aren't actually Bell Peppers. Having grown up eating paprikash at least once a month from actual Hungarian immigrants...I've never heard of it having any veggie other than onion and tomato.

    Every paprikash recipe I have ever seen has included bell peppers, and lots of them (at least one whole one, sometimes two). I never said paprika and bell peppers were the same thing.

    You live in a strange world of food. No recipe of Pumpkin Pie with cloves, literally one of the standard spices of Pumpkin Pie spice. Bell peppers in a dish that doesn't traditionally call for them. Does your cooking world tell you to use zucchini in a mirepoix too?

    Literally even the Wikipedia page for paprikash lists bell peppers as one of the primary ingredients. Quit with this food elitist bull****, it's borderline flaming.
