Fermented black beans are (fermented) black soybeans.

I should totally highlight all the items in this list that would kill me. It would be awesome. ;)

It's odd that ma po tofu is on the list as it's usually made with pork. I make a vegetarian version but I don't think that's standard.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts are a family favorite. No holiday meal is complete without them. I even got a friend who was an avowed brussels sprouts hater to eat them...and like them.

These foods aren't weird enough, too many of them are just everyday foods. I'd put bamboo pith fungus, cuitlacoche, fufu, various weird tubers, mangosteen, pitaya, cactus pear, and durian on the list.

I think I've eaten everything on that list except for the paw paw, because the possums would always beat me to the fruit before I could harvest it. Oh well!
