Indonesia – rujak

(I am reposting this after some issues with the blog.)

Hi there! I’ve been back from Indonesia for 1 week (almost exactly). I’m hoping to be emailing a newsletter soon, but I thought a blog post might be nice.

You probably know that I like food, so I thought I would make that my first post.

My favorite dish that I tried in Indonesia is more of a snack – rujak.

You take peanuts and cane sugar and pound it into this sweet peanut sauce. (You can add a chili or 2 but I asked for it without those.)

Then you add tart fruit (not quite ripe).

It’s all mixed together and tastes wonderful!

(The sound in this video is the waves crashing just behind the little shop we were in and I think a bit of the street that was in front of the shop.)

Here’s Carol & I with our ruajk; Ambon is known for it.
