A new entry for the Banquet From Hell

Fermented Bean Curd, aka "Pickled Tofu"

Always looking for something new to try. While looking for Coconut Cream, I ran across this delight which really has a "zing" to it. I've never experienced carbonated tofu before, and the liquid it comes in looks more like snot than the strings off of Natto (which looks like rubber cement). Get past that, and it's something to write home about. From the hospital.

With interest, I noticed that the store also has frozen whole durians and frozen prepared durian meat. w00t!

I think this may become a tradition...

Pickled Tofu? I thought fermented bean curd was natto?

I could ignore the strings in natto, but I don't think I could deal with something that closely resembles snot. Heck, I can't even get butterscotch pudding down because of the resemblance.

An understandable confusion. Fermented whole beans is natto... fermented bean curd is pickled tofu.

Don't feel bad... gastronomic adventure is not for everyone.

I bought a durian once, King of Fruit they say. sure does smell. I didn't find it offensive though.
The flavour of the fruit itself though I didn't like at all. But we try these things to find out! Better to try a new thing and declare it unpalatable than to never try it at all, let we end up living on nothing but bread and water.

!

That's how I got to like so many things... I tried them! And in some cases, again and again until I enjoyed it.
