Cooking with urine

Miss Needle | Apr 12, 2008 09:31 AM

I was reading some comments on Ruhlman's blog where one poster said the newest thing in Singapore was cooking with dried urine, sprinkling it on fried foods. Has anybody heard of it or tasted it? I know historically urine (from a baby boy) was added to Chinese medicinal herbs, but people don't do that anymore (thank goodness!). What kind of flavor does it add?
