It's interesting how different that process is from our typical soy sauce and the generational nature of the traditional process #food #culture #history #japan https://www.bbc.com/reel/video/p071qklg/a-750-year-old-japanese-secret

Terrific little story. Boy, Shodoshima(1) looks like heaven for savoury flavours, well known for its olive groves as well as traditional shoyu production.

(1) the name means "island of small beans", originally adzuki

We have bamboo that looks like this here in the Carolina's, beautiful plants! I took 5 roots from a neighbor's woods and transplanted in my woods beside a stream.




 
Supply chain management and detailed tracking seemed to me to be one of the best uses of blockchains. Apparently Bellucci is using it so you can track and confirm where the olive oil in the jar you produced came from. As an olive oil lover who is leery of adulterated olive oil (which is a lot of them) and a software developer I found that to be pretty neat! #food #programming #blockchain https://www.bbc.com/news/business-47553054

Sumo Citrus


I never heard of Sumo Citrus before. Very tasty! #food https://www.nequalsonelifestyle.com/2019/03/13/sumo-citrus/

I'd say they last me five days if they're separate, less if they're touching. They tend to go moldy at contact points. Do you have a local korean or japanese grocery? They often have them for way less. I'm thinking 3/$5 or thereabouts seems more typical.

@smellsofbikes Is that in the fridge or on the counter? I just recently moved so don't know if I have a Korean or Japanese store...need to look into that. These were just at the supermarket a couple miles from me.

I usually leave them on the counter. I bought a bag full of them the other day and one was moldy after two days, because they were all jammed together. Typically I buy them individually and put them in a bowl with apples between them, so like isn't touching like, and everyone lasts longer. (I also live in the desert, so it takes far longer for things to mold. Bread turns into croutons before it molds.)

@smellsofbikes I often have a problem like that with bags of lemons from Costco. Those aren't as dainty feeling so my first thing is to lightly wash them off and dry them before putting them away. It really helped dramatically improve their lifespan.



 
I'm pretty Laissez Faire about food terms and what's "authentic" and not, even ones that hit closer to home. I've always wondered where the whole "sauce vs gravy" thing came from and who uses it where. It turns out no one knows but there are lots of competing theories. Culinary history is so interesting that way. It'd be great to have some definitive answers but we often don't. It goes along with spending over an hour researching shakshuka recipes last night. Some people are very adamant about the "one truly authentic way" to do it. Turns out there are multiple very polarizing opinions about it. I like researching all of the various opinions but I'm not going to get entrenched on it, especially when there are differing opinions on these topics (and many culinary topics have the same feature). I'll just enjoy the good food and let others get into a food fight over it if they so choose :) #food #history #... show more
