Fermented black beans are fermented and salted black soybeans. They are very salty, winy, have pungent flavor and intensely savory. Used as a flavor enhancer, mostly in Asian & Chinese dishes, sauces and stir-fries.
Fermented Black Beans should be soaked overnight or at least for half an hour first, then rinsed to remove excess salt. Use in recipes, either mince or sprinkle into dish while cooking or use as part of cooking sauce.
