The grainy texture is more reminiscent of grainy crystals than peanuts. A higher powered food processor would produce a creamier texture. If you want to gain weight this is the more sensible […]

Japanese Hot Dog

The Japanese hold onto their soy sauce like we do our ketchup. Almost. We don’t put ketchup on everything, just some things. And we have a wider variety of dipping sauces than they do.
