    anyone here ever eat it? i've never tried it before, and just made a batch, and am not sure if i did it right or not. it is slimy and stringy, but kind of thick. most natto pictures/videos i've seen, the natto is stringy but not thick. it may be due to the fact that a lot of the beans separated during the pressure cooker part.

    also, it doesn't smell really pungent like a lot of people say it does. it's kind of a quiet, cheesy smell... like those cheese popcorn tins. and the taste is like cheesy stale plastic.

    so... did i do it right, or what?

    Never heard of it. Was it hard to clean your bathtub afterwards?

    There's an original Iron Chef battle with natto. It is disgusting and I highly doubt that you made it yourself.

    It is a good source of lecithin. Lecithin reduces bad ball cholesterol.

    i did make it myself. it's easy. it's just westerners don't really know about natto unless they are japanese themselves or have been exposed to it in some way. but yeah, it's super easy to make, although i did order a yougurt maker from japan especially to make the natto, because the american yogurt makers over here suck ballz and can't keep the temperature at a constant, steady pace for the 24 hours i need to ferment the stuff. i make everything i can anymore. i hate buying things pre-made. i'm like betty fucking crocker now. let's see, i grow my own wheatgrass, i have a veggie garden in the summer months, i bake spelt bread every other day, the natto which i'm trying to replicate, juice greens/fruit every morning, make my own nut butters (sunflower seed butter is the best), when i used to eat it i made my own pasta (trying to find a way to make quinoa-corn pasta now since it's better for you than wheat/semolina), we brew our own kombucha, going to learn how to do baked mochi next (which is really easy to do, also)-- anything i buy i have learned and continue to learn how to make fresh myself. my boyfriend has type II diabetes and used to eat meat and cheese all day and run marathons and bike and shit. ever since i helped him to change his diet to a (predominately raw) vegan one, he doesn't have to exercise like crazy and i feed him healthy foods that keep his blood sugar at excellent levels-- no medication whatsoever and he's not killing himself riding his bike 20 miles a day anymore to make sure he doesn't get sick. so, yeah. i'm awesome. being an eco vegan gal is the only way to be in this world nowadays.


    :snicker: cute. i only posted that pic because i know in this forum everything has to be tongue-in-cheek, otherwise the replies are destined to be 100% troll.


    fuck yeah. :badger:


    never heard about the 15 time rule. lots of recipes/articles i've read said to stir like 100 times. :shocked: well, i think i'm going to throw out my first batch and try another. i think i lost the recipe during the pressure cooker phase. i need to tweak that a bit to ensure the beans don't get too mushy.
