all of you girls that ate it, I want to know.

I encapsulated mine, but it doesnt gross me out anymore. I imagine it might actually taste good, so did it? would you reccomend it?

I tried cooking it, but it tasted really funny. I prefer it raw. It's even healthier that way, it preserves a lot of nutrition you would otherwise lose by cooking.

I'm just wondering how on earth it could actually taste good. Considering what it is.

I encapsulated mine too, had a sort of metallic aftertaste when I took them. I've thought about saving a bit and doing it like liver and onions. I couldn't eat it raw though. I know of some that do that.

what does it taste like raw? i would imagine very iron-y? I wonder if i could stomach it. I could definitely eat it cooked i think. it grossed me out when i first heard about it, but then i encapsulated it. It helped me A LOT and i know the dehydration process makes it lose a lot of vitamins so i thought about eating it cooked or maybe even raw instead.

I know someone who makes placenta chocolates! Don't think I could handle cooking and eating it. I am squeamish about dark meat poultry, I can't imagine organ meat being any easier to stomach.
