I found them in my garden. They tell you that spring has come, although cherry flowers “Sakura” have not start blooming yet. I picked them up and washed by water.
It should be boiled as short as you can. If you boiled too long, its green color and bitterness would be lost. So, instead of boiling them in a pan, I poured boiled water onto butterbur using a colander.
I mixed miso paste, Japanese sake, and sugar for seasoning. I was not sure how sugar would affect on the taste. So I checked the taste, felt a little sweet, and then I put small pieces of fresh ginger.
And this is the main dish last night. It was canned mackerel “Saba”. My mom bought it for my dad to eat several years ago. However, it was expired on February 2020. Although the expiration was more than one year ago, I wouldn’t like to throw it. Having hoped that was not harmful because it was canned food, I ate the Mackerel with sliced onion, grated ginger and garlic, and soy sauce.
