Natto – One Of Japan’s Extraordinary Dishes

Natto – One Of Japan’s Extraordinary Dishes

Submitted by • March 3, 2014

Natto was originally made by placing soybeans in a rice straw pouch that naturally contained a fermenting bacillus. After being fermented for 24 hours, the soybeans develop a brown color, a sticky gooeyness, and a distinctly fermented aroma that resembles cheeses such as blue or roquefort. Because of its very foul smell, people tasting it for the first time are surprised by its nutty, savory flavor. Many foods are fermented but Natto is by far the winner, imagine blue cheese but slimmy slippery and smelling like a pair of gym socks.
