Specifically, we make an Natto Oyaki (Rice chips with fermented soybeans) and Grilled Salmon. And finally, I made a set meal with Miso soup and Japanese sweets Anmitsu.

How To Store Eggplant (Freezer ver.)

Categorised in: | Link of this article

Eggplant is a vegetable that can be liked or disliked if not cooked well. Nasunin, the pigment in the skin, is a type of polyphenol that has antioxidant properties and helps prevent lifestyle-related diseases.
To freeze, fry well and place in a freezer bag. It can be stored in the freezer for about 1 month. When you use them, we recommend using them straight into miso soup or stir-fry!

Eggplant is a vegetable that can be liked or disliked if not cooked well. Nasunin, the pigment in the skin, is a type of polyphenol that has antioxidant properties and helps prevent lifestyle-related diseases. It absorbs oil well, so it is effective to soak it in salt water or sprinkle salt on the cut end after cutting.

Shichi-go-san (Festive Day for Children)

Categorised in: | Link of this article

November 15 is Shichi-go-san (7-5-3). It is a day to give thanks for health and pray for guardian gods for the future happiness of three and five-year-old boys, and three and seven-year old girls.

In the old days, the mortality rates of young children being so high, children were thought to belong to the gods until the age of seven. A child younger than seven years old was not considered a full-fledged member of society. They were not punished for their sins and did not have to mourn. The Shichi-go-san festival was an important event to mark turning points during infancy, and to show one had become a member of society.
