Wakame
Japanese often eat seaweed such as wakame, nori, konbu (kelp) and hijiki. They are well known as health foods, wakame and nori being the most popular among them. Wakame is rich in water soluble dietary fiber and is an alkaline food with excellent mineral balance. In addition to Japan, it is also popular in Korea, these two countries being the only ones in the world where it is widely eaten. Wakame is often used in miso soup and served in salads and side dishes. As a standard ingredient of miso soup, some Japanese eat it everyday. Most wakame is sold dried or salted. The harvest season is from winter to spring, and another type, raw wakame (a signal of the coming of spring) is sold only during this period. Dried wakame is sold throughout the year, and is convenient to use for many dishes. If you are interested in seaweed, why not start off with dried wakame?

How to Store Dried Laver (Nori)
Do you eat dried laver (nori)?
In Japan, we eat it with steamed rice, and it is also used for rice balls, maki-zushi (rolled sushi), temaki-zushi (hand-rolled sushi), etc. Dried laver is very nutritious and good for your health.
However, because it is weak against moisture, it is important to store it properly.
Dried laver that is sold in a bag can be kept in the bag or taken out and put in a zip lock bag with a desiccant. It is also sold in cans, but after opening, put it in a zip lock bag  with a desiccant.
The best storage place is a refrigerator because it is dry. The laver will last one to two months there.
For long-term storeag, a freezer is best. It will last one year there. However, please eat as soon as possible after removing because the flavor and smell decrease quickly.
Also, after removing it from the refrigerator or a freezer, open the bag only after it reaches room temperature in order to prevent the laver from becoming moist.

Daifuku Mochi Varieties
Daifuku mochi is a traditional popular confection in Japan. It is usually called daifuku. It is round with an outer layer usually made from glutinous rice flour, and is filled with anko, mashed sweetened red bean paste. It is soft and chewy like mochi (rice cake). The combination of sweetness and chewy filling makes a unique confection. Actually, there are many kinds of daifuku, mame daifuku and ichigo daifuku being the most famous among them. Mame daifuku has red peas kneaded into the outer layer. The red peas make the daifuku taste more enjoyable. Ichigo daifuku is round with one strawberry at the center, covered with anko and surrounded with an outer layer of glutinous rice flour. The combination of the three ingredients gives it an exquisite taste. There are other types of fruit daifuku such as chestnut, orange, peach, melon, and so on. If you have the opportunity to eat daifuku, please enjoy it with green tea.
