Trial of Raw Thornback

Sliced raw thorn back would be possibly less interesting food you can have in Korea. First you chop a raw thorn back and the pieces are sealed in a jar over a week. During this riping process, thorn back, in order to control the osmotic pressure, generates some elements and ammonia. Therefore these cause some stink when we eat it. Raw thorn back is normally served with other two companies, kimchi and steamed pork, and thus they are in total called 'trial.' It was the first time for me to have raw thorn back and I'm glad you cannot smell it on your monitors.
