What kind?
I've eaten several varieties, but prefer the spicy sprouts (radish) on salad...

lamb's quarter is a tasty green. cress and 'creasy greens' are also good vitamin source.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Goober Peas (boiled peanuts).

Anything that has had a whole song written about it can't be all bad.

I haven't tried them but I did do some reading about the best way to fix them.
Just Jim...

How about JUST A BOWL OF BUTTERBEANS by Little Jimmy Dickens??
(My mother hated that song as it uses the tune to JUST A CLOSER WALK WITH THEE.)

Boiled peanuts must be an acquired taste. I have tried them and they are not good.
