Tofu with hackle fringe

Posted by Callan Bentley

We were making dinner last week and took out a block of “silken” tofu* with less care than we should have, and it broke. But what a break! The fracture showed a gorgeous elliptical joint face that broken up into a twisted series of hackles along its fringe:

That’s something nice homogeneous fine-grained rocks do, too!

I hereby challenge all my tofu-eating readership to attempt similar tofu-fracturing experiments, and to document the results with photographs. Send me your best ones, and I’ll post them here!
