Surströmming

Grandpa (age 95) and I on our trip to Northern Sweden in 2011 had the opportunity to taste surströmming, which is fermented Baltic sea herring. It's known as the stinkiest food in the world and you aren't allowed to eat it inside! It was a cross between rotting fish and outhouse in smell. Apparently it promotes a long life because Grandpa is still going at 98 .... and he has a girlfriend!

Weasel Poo Coffee Anyone?


My sister gave me some Weasel Coffee from Vietnam. It had the most incredible rich dark coffee smell. The grounds were oily so when I made the coffee, there were big droplets of oil.

Weasel coffee is supposed to be Kopi Luak coffee... the coffee that is made with the beans that the Civet cat eats, then poops. Can you imagine a worse job?

Apparently, they only eat the best beans, so the coffee is supposed to be incredible. I don't think I did it justice by using it in my espresso maker. But I can proudly cross it off my bucket list.

Facebook

I love Facebook. It's allowed my far flung family to keep in touch. Pictures have been posted from all over the world and we are amazed that our great uncle Joe looks just like someone's new baby.

I have my reservations though. Businesses and organisations ask you to connect to them. Is this a good thing? What can they access? I'm a little leery about this aspect of it.

However, since we moved in the Fall, it has been a great tool to keep in touch with friends. So All Things Edible, jump on board! We miss you!
