I suppose the commercial fish sauce sold in bottles at the grocery is made a little differently, but here's how the rural peasants made it: take the carcass of the fish that was eaten for yesterday's meal. Place it with others on a board for several days in the tropical sun. To get good and ripe.
Now, take this rotten flesh and boil it for a while, skimming off the goo that rises to the top. This process can be smelled FOR MILES. The "aroma" is garanteed to gag a maggot.
Continue boiling until everything is dissolved - meat, bones, everything.
Keep this concoction for use in cooking. And remember - the villagers had no electricity for refrigeration.
As any Nam vet about how the smell of Vietnam hit them when he, or she, first go off the plane.
The #1 trouble with most Americans is they have never been to a Third World country. They have no idea how well off even the poorest in our country are.

I'm thinking of buying and trying this one: https://www.fruitionseeds.com/Organi...Rice-p/gr1.htm
Too bad it won't grow through fall, winter, and early spring - the regular kind. We have super wet property those months here in the rainy, wet, gloomy PNW!!! I could Easily keep it flooded! In fact, as we do a perimeter walk every single day (rain or shine), we usually say we should grow rice in most of the pasture. However, late spring and summer, well, not enough water. Maybe we should tap our neighbor's spring too! They won't mind...
@Redneck Your project sounds interesting. How would you thresh the rice? Is there a mill nearby where they could clean it for you? You are fortunate to have the ambition and desire to try new ventures. Godspeed and keep us posted on your experiment.

AMEN BROTHER! Well said!
Add to that , most Americans have never been to ANY foreign country. So our arrogant fellow citizens think they “know” all about the benefits of socialism when in fact they don’t understand shit. But these ignorant fools are about to get a very rude lesson in reality.
Sorry for the rant. I’m pretty far off the original topic!
