Our Spring Taste;

*Cooked Bamboo shoot; our favorite spring taste*
Sorry that my old friend may remember my old post about this dish. About a week ago, awaited annual gift of spring taste from my next-neighbor arrived. Wife of the family has parents who are semi-agricultural and lives mountain side.  Its season starts from April and we can enjoy them until May. My blog friend taught me that one of the highest fiber content vegetable. So it help us to keep cholesterol levels. I wonder if mine suits my friends' taste in western country.
Ones sold at the stores are a little bit expensive, 
we were blessed with the precious and delectable spring gift. 


This was my late brother's favorite dish too and  I remember his happy face when he came to have them or pick them. We have superstition that Life is prolonged for 75 days when we eat firstling of the season"       I wish to believe it p;)

Dear Miyako, I had a delightful time looking through all your recipes and photos.
You have put a lot of thought into your posts and I enjoyed reading them. Thank you for sharing them.

I like the saying about life being prolonged for 75 days when eating firstling of the season :D)
