Really. What was going through the mind of the first guy to eat natto, or anything fermented, for that matter?

“Boy, this sure looks old and putrid. Think I’ll put it in my mouth!”

Now, don’t get me wrong. I actually find natto quite tasty. It’s great with a light soy sauce and some nori, over rice. (Although I would caution all to steer clear of dry roasted natto, which I assume is intended as a snack food akin to dry roasted peanuts, but which left me with the distinct impression of having been dutch ovened in the mouth.)

There’s just something about eating old, moldy, and rotten things that smacks of pure desperation. Or insanity. (Notice, also, how often these things become delicacies for the fine and fancy crowd. Wine and cheese, anyone?)
