I finely sliced one to try. It reminded me of something that I remembered from my non-vegetarian days. Without telling anyone my thoughts I let my husband have a try. He immediately said "It tastes like tuna!" My thoughts exactly. I don't know if it was the brine it was in or the texture...but I could not get past the tuna association.
Ian was not put off and made himself a nostalgic snack...a homage to when tuna was on the menu. His Hearts of Palm and Mayonnaise sandwich went down well with him! So much so, he's taking some to work with him tomorrow for his lunch.
