Poll: Which Outlander Dish Will You Refuse to Eat?

Here’s the situation:

You are at the hands of Black Jack Randall.  He has agreed to release you, but first you must consume a selection of some of the more challenging foods from the Outlander series.  Because he is a gentleman (whatever), he only demands that you eat 3 out of the 4 foods listed below.

So, the question in this game of 18th Century Fear Factor is, which of the foods listed below do you think is MORE disgusting than the others?

Results will be up on Thursday, Dec 1.
