Hamaguri no osuimono | Cherrystone clam soup
In this video, I’ll introduce how to make Hamaguri no osuimono (Cherrystone clam soup). Osuimono is a type of soup and has very delicate flavor. The flavor from the clam is really important and key for this soup. To add fancy color, I put some pieces of wheat gluten that we eat quite often here in Japan and also mitsuba leaves. Mitsuba is a Japanese parsley and has unique bitter flavor. We have this soup on special occasion. Guess when? Enjoy this soup recipe video and please try it out!
