Real food induced terror is not just overly fattening food but truly disgusting food like the dish where the main part of it is rotten fish.

Casu marzu, mothafuckas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casu_marzu)

Because the larvae in the cheese can launch themselves for distances up to 15 centimetres (6 in) when disturbed, diners hold their hands above the sandwich to prevent the maggots from leaping into their eyes. Those who do not wish to eat live maggots place the cheese in a sealed paper bag. The maggots, starved for oxygen, writhe and jump in the bag, creating a "pitter-patter" sound. When the sounds subside, the maggots are dead and the cheese can be eaten.

How jolly! I don't want to put anyone off popcorn, but, well, there you go. Reminds me of the tofu block with the baby eels (http://www.slate.com/id/2089630/entry/2089645/).

Ah, so that's how you get blue tortillas. I don't think you can get fresh huitlacoche in most/any of the US though, and I've always heard that the canned kind is kind of crappy. My dad was looking into deliberately infecting some corn with it with the idea of selling it to the local Mexican population, but he said there was some kind of regulation against it, or either a really arcane licensing procedure to be able to produce/sell it. I hate our food laws sometimes.

I love me some blood sausage. Whenever I visit family up in Wisconsin, I always ask for this at least once the trip. The version you get in stores there appears to be slightly different than the types you see in the Wiki link. The one I know has a consistency like chorizo, but is sweeter, with raisins and other unidentifiable bits.

The best breakfast combination is blood sausage, liver sausage (kind of like braunschweiger, but not cured. Just ground livers and spices and stuff in a casing, can't find a link to it anywhere) and some black rye bread with butter.

Hey, looks not bad! Then you realize it's lutefisk and how it was made.

The first treatment is to soak the stockfish in cold water for five to six days (with the water changed daily). The saturated stockfish is then soaked in an unchanged solution of cold water and lye for an additional two days. The fish swells during this soaking and its protein content decreases by more than 50 percent, producing its famous jelly-like consistency. When this treatment is finished, the fish (saturated with lye) has a pH value of 1112, and is therefore caustic. To make the fish edible, a final treatment of yet another four to six days of soaking in cold water (also changed daily) is needed. Eventually, the lutefisk is ready to be cooked.

Reinforcements
01-15-2010, 11:44 AM
You'd be surprised how often lye is used in food preparation. Green olives are soaked in a lye solution to leech out the bitter chemicals they naturally contain, and pretzels are sometimes dipped in lye solution before cooking to enhance browning.

EDIT: Looks like the difference is that tempeh is made with a fungus as opposed to natto being made with bacteria.

upupdowndown
01-19-2010, 09:08 PM
Another key difference between natto and tempeh is that natto is a lot more... insistent. The flavor is waaaaay more funky and the texture... oh god the texture. I tried natto a few times in college and never got used to the sticky snot strands binding together the squishy soybeans. the last time i tried natto was at a chili cook off in the summer. unfortunately, I tried the natto after sampling 12 different chilis and I puked.

tempeh on the other hand is just bland. It's much firmer than natto so you can use slices of it for burgers and stuff. It's okay, but give me seitan any day if we're talking vegetarian proteins.

I would eat almost everything in this thread once.

If there's some culture in the world that eats a certain food regularly any food at all I'd like to think I'm able to at least try that food without flipping out. The exceptions are painful flavor extremes, living animals, and dangerous substances. I'd probably avoid that curry, and I might pass on the maggot cheese (strictly because of the parasite risk), but I do hope to eat balut at least once in life. After all, I have eaten hot dogs. There's no way balut is even half as disgusting as a hot dog.

On second thought, I guess I'd only shy away from eating a live animal if it had an easily identifiable face. I'd eat a live oyster like ain't no thang.

The Christmas list I gave to my family last holiday season included a bag of civet coffee. Nobody bought it for me. I was not surprised.
