TRUE OR FALSE?
In countries such as Japan, Korea and China, it is considered a delicacy to eat jellyfish.

(True.) Although many people around the world eat the jellyfish, the initial reaction is of dread and revulsion at the prospect. People fear that because most jellyfish have venomous stings, they will be eating something poisonous. But the jellyfish available at the market is processed in salt and alum, which neutralizes the venom. In fact, this process is necessary to preserve the jellyfish, because it will spoil very fast, once taken out of the water. Jellyfish has an absolutely bland taste. The flesh of a cooked jellyfish takes on the flavors of the dish. So if the jellyfish is marinated in the usual vinegars and soy sauce, it will have that flavor and taste exactly like the sauce.
