Tofu can be divided into South tofu and North tofu. South tofu, also known as water tofu, has fine texture, no impurities and no water lines; North tofu is also called old tofu. There are bubbles in old tofu, and its texture is slightly older than that of South tofu. Due to regional differences, the cooking methods of tofu in the South and North are not the same. People in the north often use tofu to stew, or use it to make frozen tofu in winter. In cold winter, they make a dish of cabbage stewed with frozen tofu, and sit on a warm Kang, one by one, The mouth is full of squeaky breath, lying juice (there are a lot of holes in the frozen tofu, when eating soup is easy to squeeze out), very happy. I used to make a joke when I went to school in Northeast China. When I was hot, I stuffed frozen tofu into my mouth. As a result, I felt embarrassed when I was hot. I didn’t vomit or swallow it. Now I really miss the frozen tofu in Northeast China.
