I often look at my natto pictures (see yesterday’s lunch) and think oh gawd it must look really gross to people who don’t know what the hell it is. It is fermented soy beans. It is slimy and smells funky, too, just like any fermented food. What fermented food or indigenous food have you got in your culture that is considered an acquired taste? You know, stuff like Vegemite or Surströmming, both of which I’ve yet to try.
P.S. Hello you new folks out there!
