Does not sound good to me! I’ll stick to clams and scallops!lol


I’ve never eaten jellied eels and I suspect I would have to be on the verge of starvation to actually try them.
On the other hand I have caught one! My husband was a keen fisherman and in the seventies before the children we went to Norfolk in a caravan with fishing rights. I decided to have a go and did manage to catch a fish, but my second attempt I pulled the line out of the water to see an eel wriggling its way up the line! I didn’t deal with it well I’m afraid, shouting for it to be removed from the line before I threw that and the rod in the river! Needless to say that was my first and last attempt!

I’ve seen that as a meal in many books I’ve read, wasn’t sure what it entailed. Your description of it makes me want to barf! Maybe an aquired taste? But back then, if you were poor and nothing else to eat, you would gladly eat it, I guess!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
