tempeh is from indonesia. now i know.


following up on the post below...
i'm not sure where i thought it was from, but i would've guessed somewhere north or west of the island nation.
tempeh is made from fermented soybeans, with a flavor more complex than that of tofu, and a flavor i enjoy more. it also freezes well, maintaining its texture-- which is firmer and more crumbly than tofu. i used the white wave brand's soy flavor, which is 2.49 for an 8 oz pkg at open harvest.
