And just what is sumalac, you ask?

In a nut shell, it's liquid bread.

You take wheat seeds, germinate them for a few days, then brown them, add flour, oil, sugar, water and other stuff. Simmer for 12-24 hours, and you end up with a thick brown paste that tastes like, um, boiled wheat stalks.

Supposedly it's very good for you. But then, in this part of the world (Uzbekistan) they say the same thing about vodka, so who can you trust?

    So I'm wondering....if they drink their bread, what do they do with their vodka???? P.S. the bread looks disgusting!!!! :-)

    Bailey - to say "Thank You" for sharing that "Malort" commercial would not be saying enough! Maybe chasing sumac with Malort would make both more tolerable?…but then, it could make a paring that'd surely open the slices at both ends. THANKS for the moment and the share!

    The thing about both, I am surmising, is the incredibly short half-life end to end. I think the stain, however, is permanent.
