"The dedication with which the cooks make the sauce based on a recipe that is over 400 years old fascinated Azim," said the photo description.
In the past every household in the village used to store jars of soy sauce to use all year round. Today they make not only for their own use but also to sell outside the village.
Soy sauce is made from glutinous rice, salt, soybean, and water and is especially delicious if made with rainwater.
