(from Davis Rosback)
I used to hate tomatoes and it really makes me sad. Sure, there are a lot of terrible tomatoes out there but a perfectly ripe, in-season tomato with just a little salt and pepper (or as part of caprese salad) is a beautiful and delicious thing.

I know it sounds a little weird, but I didn't really like potatoes for a really long time. I would eat one tiny roasted potato because I had to (thanks to my mum's rule) but I didn't enjoy it. They still aren't my favourite (although fries are pretty awesome), but I will now actually eat a baked potato. That's definitely something I've grown into.
I don't think it is completely weird not to like chili as a kid - strong flavours, potentially spicy - but as an adult I think it is a little weird. I think I was well into my twenties before I grew into my love of chili. I'm so glad it is - it is one of my go-to meals to make and freeze in the fall and winter.
Things I haven't grown into? Ketchup, beets, and lamb. Actually - lamb I think I grew out of. I would eat it as a kid and now I don't like it. Any foods you've grown into? Or any foods that most people like or love but that you just can't get behind?
