Japanese spring taste Fukinoto 春の味ふきのとう
Fukinoto(Petasites japonicas) is an herbaceous perennial plant in the family Asteraceae. It is native to Japan,, where the shoots are used as a vegetable.
Fukinoto taste a bit bitter but very tasty.
The most common ways of preparing fukinoto are as tempura or fukinoto miso.
I had almost given up having fukinoto in here(Victoria in Vanada). I got them from our beautiful local organic Uminami farm. They grow lots of beautiful Japanese vegetables in here Canada. Their vegetables are so beautiful and wonderful taste.
