Heirloom tomatoes are simply a kind of (wonderful! delicious!)

Natto is fermented soybeans. My own personal opinion is -- YUCK!
They are DISGUSTING! The taste like dirty sweat socks and they are
slimy. Also, in my own personal opinion, mountain potato (or
mountain yam) is nowhere near as gross as natto -- although it is
slimy also. If you can get past the slime (which I can't) it
actually tastes okay. As I said, these are just my own personal
opinions. I have a friend who LOVES natto, and anytime we go out for
sushi (vegetarian that is), she ends up ordering a roll with natto as
one of the ingredients. To each their own!
Have a healthy day!
