Word Press – Post A Day -Bacon and chocolate, caramel and cheddar… Is there an unorthodox food pairing you really enjoy? Share with us the weirdest combo you’re willing to admit that you like — and how you discovered it.
Ok Ok, so I thought about this…. and my first one wasn’t exactly well thought out- there actually was one food that I had that was absolutely completely bizarre to me. BUT, it is a staple dessert in Malaysia!
I went to Malaysia for the month of March. I have never been there before and it was absolutely amazing.
There is a dessert called – Ice Kacang! Also known as ABC in some areas.
This dessert has an assortment of things in it – nothing that I would ever imagine putting in a dessert! But everyone there seems to love it.
So the ingredients are:
- Crushed Ice
- Coconut Sugar
- Brown Sugar
- Condensed Milk
- Canned Red Beans
- Cream Style Sweat Corn
- Grass Jelly Pieces
- Attap Chee (Palm Nuts) – optional
- ice cream – optional
Now, I would never think of eating a dessert like this. It just seems like a weird combination to put together. Corn with shaved ice? Red Beans with shaved ice? And those Jelly pieces — they looked like worms to me. But, I guess you never know what something is going to taste like unless you try it!
So, again, I would say — never judge a book by it’s cover.
