How to Cook Fresh Edamame with Shells with Perfect Saltiness - Video Recipe

Edamame (green soybeans) are perfect meal starter, commonly served at Japanese restaurants.
This video will show you how to cook fresh Edamame with Shells with Perfect Saltiness.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sd0W_Eo5SKs

If you get some fresh Edamame with shells, you want to cook them within a day or they can get bad and lose nutrients quickly. If you cannot eat them on the day you bought, you want to cook and keep them in the freezer. You can keep them good for about a month.



---------------------------------
How to Cook Fresh Edamame with Shells with Perfect Saltiness

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 15min
Number of servings: 4

Ingredients:
300g (10.6oz.) unshelled Edamame (green soybeans)
1200ml water
3 tbsp. salt

about 4% salt is the key to the perfect saltiness

Directions:
1. Cut off both ends of the pods with scissors (in this way salty taste will soak through them). Then rub the Edamame bean pods with 1 tbsp. of salt to remove the surface fuzz.
2. Put water and 2 tbsp. of salt in a large pot. Bring to a boil and add Edamame (leave the salt on). Cook for 3.5 min to 5 min. Little hard is okay. Do not cook more than 5 minutes or they lose the flavor.
3. Drain well in a strainer, then use a fan to cool.

You can keep cooked Edamame in the freezer for a month in a Ziploc bag.

How to Make Nitamago Ramen Eggs - Video Recipe

Ramen Eggs, also called Nitamago, Ajitama, or Ajitsuke-tamago, are savory soft-boiled eggs with creamy runny egg yolk, known as Ramen topping.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXJeJM8q5YA

Ramen Egg is not only for Ramen but also for fried rice, pasta, rice bowl, and more! It even makes a perfect topping for white rice. Great dish to stock in the fridge :)



---------------------------------
Ramen Eggs

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 10min + soaking time
Number of servings: 4

Ingredients:
4 cold eggs right out of the fridge
Tare seasonings
* 2 tbsp. soy sauce
* 2 tbsp. Mirin (sweet Sake)
* 1 tsp. sugar

Directions:
1. Bring a pot of water to a boil.
2. Tap each egg with a spoon to make cracks in the bottom of the shell. OR you can poke a small hole using an "Egg Hole Puncher". (Water goes in between the egg and the shell which helps the shell to come off).
3. Place the eggs in a strainer and place it in boiling water, the crack-side up (to let water in). The strainer prevents eggs from hitting the bottom of the pot.
4. Boil for 7 minutes. Place them in water to cool, then peel.
5. Place the Tare seasonings in a Ziploc bag and mix well. Then place the eggs, close securely, and put in the fridge for about 30 minutes ~ 12 hours, rolling over once in a while.

If you soak the eggs too long, they become salty and the egg yolks pectize (like jelly). Please eat when you think are ready. I think it becomes too salty after 12 hours.

You can get an "Egg Hole Puncher" at Daiso 100yen shop to poke a hole in the egg.

Onsen Tamago is a traditional Japanese soft-boiled egg. The egg white is milky and the egg yolk is creamy. It makes a perfect topping for rice :)


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xwg9drpyEXE

The traditional way of cooking Onsen Tamago is to place eggs into rope nets and leave them in a hot spring. However in this tutorial, I will show you how to make them in a pot at home :)



---------------------------------

Number of servings: 4 eggs

Ingredients:
4 eggs

Directions:

Easy-to-Peel Hard-Boiled Eggs in 10 minutes! - Video Recipe

Here's the technique I saw on TV how to get hard-boiled eggs that peel beautifully!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agsRmI4F2mI



---------------------------------
Easy-to-Peel Hard-Boiled Eggs in 10 minutes

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 10min
Number of servings: N/A

NOTE: Use cold eggs right out of the fridge!

Directions:
1. Bring a pot of water to a boil, then place a metal strainer in it
(to prevent eggs from hitting the bottom of the pot).
2. Tap each egg with a spoon to make cracks in the bottom of the shell. OR you can poke a small hole using an "Egg Hole Puncher". (The water goes in between the egg and the shell which helps the shell to come off).
3. Place the eggs in the strainer (boiling water), the crack-side up (to let the water in).
4. Cook for 10 minutes. Place them in ice water for about 30 sec. (The sudden change in temperature causes the egg to shrink slightly inside the shell.)
5. Now the eggs are easy to peel :)

You can get an "Egg Hole Puncher" at Daiso 100yen shop to poke a hole in the egg.

How to Make Anko (Azuki Red Bean Paste) from Scratch - Video Recipe

This video will show you how to make Anko (Azuki Red Bean Paste) from Scratch. Anko filling and topping can be used to make so many healthy Japanese desserts!!!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyE9a8gejHA

Sweet Azuki Red Bean Paste with Skins is called "Tsubu-an". "Koshi-an" (Sweet Azuki Red Bean Paste without Skins) is prepared by passing through a sieve to remove all bean skins to make it smooth.



It takes over an hour to make it, so if you are in hurry, it is much faster to use store-bought one ;) hehe

---------------------------------
Anko (Azuki Red Bean Paste) from Scratch

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 1.5hr
Number of servings: about 750g (1.65lb)

Ingredients:
300g (10.6oz.) Azuki beans
250g (8.8oz.) soft brown sugar
a pinch of salt

Directions:
1. Put Azuki beans in a pot, add plenty of water, bring to a boil, then drain well. You want to repeat this for 2-3 times to remove the harsh taste if you have time. But just once is okay.
2. Add 3 times as much water in the pot, bring to a boil, then simmer on medium for an hour, removing the foam and adding enough water to cover if necessary, until the beans become soft enough to break by pressing with your fingertips.
3. Drain excess water, add sugar, then cook until the mashed-potato-like consistency. Add salt to taste and stop the heat. It is bit soggy when it is hot but it hardens when it becomes cold.

You can keep it in an air-tight plastic wrap, or a zip-lock bag, in the fridge for a week, in the freezer for a month.

How to Make Very Basic Dashi Broth (Perfect Soup Stock for Japanese Food) - Video Recipe

This video will show you how to make the very basic Dashi broth, the base of many Japanese dishes, as well as Japanese baby food ;)

This is one of a few ways to make Dashi!
You can make vegetarian Dashi by using only Kombu (kelp).
Dashi does not mean fish btw... it means "Soup Stock".


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ObUMAxtnCCA

Kombu (kelp), Hana-katsuo (large bonito flakes), and/or Niboshi (small dried sardines) can be used to make the broth. The combination is up to you.



---------------------------------
Very Basic Dashi Broth (Perfect Soup Stock for Japanese Food)

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 15min + soaking time
Number of servings: 4 cups

Ingredients:
800ml water
20cm/8inch-long Kombu (kelp)
handful of Hana-katsuo (large bonito flakes)

Directions:
1. Cut Kombu in half, then clean it with moistened towel. Soak in 800ml water for 30 minutes.
2. Heat the pot on medium, before it starts to boil, remove the Kombu, add Hana-katsuo, mix, stop the heat and wait until they soak completely.
3. Strain the Dashi soup with a strainer (with a clean cloth or a paper towel if you have). *Do not squeeze the bonito flakes too much since they can add bad smell.

For baby food, you can store it in the freezer for a week!

You can make homemade Furikake (rice seasoning) with leftover Dashi ingredients!

How to Make Salted Preserved Lemons - Video Recipe

Salted Preserved Lemons are the lemons that have been pickled in salt for about a week or more.

They are common in Indian and North African (Moroccan) cuisine. It is much talked about in Japan on TV and magazines recently, so I am sharing this idea :)

The flavor is mildly sour, and of course very salty. Thus, the juice and the peels can be used as a salt seasoning (substitute). However, peels are intensively salty, so I personally don't recommend using it. hehe


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZ3-0GTEgLk

These are some good effects that you can expect from Salted Preserved Lemons:
- cut down salt intake (prevents swelling)
- citric acid will help carbohydrate metabolism (beauty effect)
- rich in Vitamin C (beauty effect)



---------------------------------
Salted Preserved Lemons

Difficulty: Super Easy
Time: 10min
Number of Servings: 500ml glass jar

Necessary Equipment:
500ml glass jar

Ingredients:
300g (10oz.) organic lemons
30g (1oz.) salt (10% of lemon)

Directions:
1. Pour some hot water in a glass jar to disinfect it. Empty the jar and dry it out. It will dry quickly with residual heat.
2. Wash the lemons, dry them with paper towels, cut off and discard the end pieces, cut into wedges, then remove the seeds.
3. Put salt and lemon wedges alternately in the jar. Close the lid securely.
4. Keep it in the fridge for a week. Shake the jar once a day.

* You can keep it in the fridge up to 3 months.

How to Make Kuki Wakame no Tsukudani (Wakame Seaweed Stems Boiled Down in Soy Sauce) - Video Recipe

Fresh Wakame (seaweed) is in season in spring in Japan!
My mom bought it as a souvenir. wow

I love Kuki Wakame no Tsukudani (Wakame Seaweed Stems Boiled Down in Soy Sauce) which my grandma makes, so I decided to make it with the stems.

It goes great with white rice and perfect for bento box :)


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PkSmR9XF3nc

You can blanch the fresh Wakame in boiling water (which will turn the natural brown color to the green) and freeze up to a year. When you use, you can just defrost at room temperature or soak in water.

There are many ways to enjoy fresh Wakame. Leaves can be used for Shabu Shabu (enjoy leaves changing color in hot water and eat with Ponzu sauce), Miso soup, salad, etc… Stems can be used for Tsukudani (simmered dish), Kinpira (stir-fried dish), etc…



---------------------------------
Kuki Wakame no Tsukudani (Wakame Seaweed Stems Boiled Down in Soy Sauce)

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 30min
Number of servings: N/A

200g (7oz.) fresh Wakame seaweed stems
200g (7oz.) Enokitake (Enoki mushrooms)
100g (3.5oz.) Shimeji mushrooms
80g (3oz.) boiled Zenmai (Osmunda japonica)
2 dried Shiitake mushrooms
150ml hot water
A
* 3 tbsp. Sake
* 3 tbsp. Mirin (sweet Sake)
* 3 tbsp. sugar
* 6 tbsp. soy sauce
3 tbsp. ground toasted white sesame seeds

Directions:
1. Blanch the fresh Wakame stems in boiling water (which will turn the natural brown color to the green we are familiar with).
2. Soak dried Shiitake mushrooms in 150ml hot water until they become soft (after 15 minutes or so). Then thinly slice them. Reserve the soaking liquid.
3. Thinly slice Wakame stems. Remove tough base of Enoki mushrooms and cut in half. Remove tough base of Shimeji mushrooms and break into pieces. Cut boiled Zenmai into bite-size length.
4. Place the reserved Shiitake soaking liquid and A in a pot, and bring to a boil. Add the cut ingredients, then cook on medium (stirring once in a while) until the liquid is almost gone for about 15 minutes.
5. Mix in ground toasted white sesame seeds to finish.

You can keep it in the fridge for a week. Or in the freezer for 1-2 months but it may get soggy. In that case, you want to simmer it again to dry out the excess liquid.

Tips to Enjoy Yakiniku Indoors (Japanese Grilled Meat / BBQ) - Video Recipe

In this video, I will show you how to enjoy Yakiniku indoors :D

Last week, I won a package of beef at the recipe contest. And along with the beef, I received a letter with some tips to enjoy Yakiniku indoors and I never knew them! So, I will share those tips with you!!!


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvktrBRSvyQ

Yakiniku is mostly beef but you can make it with chicken or pork or meat of your choice ;)



BTW, in Japan at home, we usually use electrical barbecue called "hot plate " to cook Yakiniku at table. I really envy those who have barbecue set at home! We don't have that big yard in Japan, you know… And sadly, from this April, our closest BBQ spot is going to close because of the littering problem.

---------------------------------
Yakiniku Indoors (Japanese Grilled Meat / BBQ)

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 10min
Number of servings: n/a

Ingredients:
beef or meat of your choice
soy sauce + wasabi (in tube or freshly grated)
ponzu sauce (citrus-flavored soy sauce: you can mix 1 tbsp. soy sauce and 1 tbsp. lemon juice to make it)

Tips:
1. Color of the Meat:
Pink, red, brown, or etc… what color of the meat is the best?
To answer this question, it is difficult to tell which is better until you eat them. So just ask the butcher and trust them. hehe
2. The best way to cook Yakiniku:
Make sure you let the meat get back into room temperature before you cook. You will see the surface of the meat shining with its own juice and grease when it's ready. Then you don't have to turn the heat down to low to cook and you won't lose any good flavor! That is why outdoor barbecue is always good (because your meat is at room temperature). Of course it is the best if you have BBQ grill set at home, but if you don't, you can use a grill pan, cast-iron skillet, or fryingg pan on the stove, because the key is the meat temperature! It is the same for Sukiyaki, Shabu-Shabu, steaks, etc…
3. The best way to eat Yakiniku:
Don't forget to season the meat with salt and pepper before you cook. That definitely brings out the flavor of the meat. For the sauce, wasabi soy sauce or ponzu sauce is the best! Simple yet delicious! You have to try it out.

*Grill the meat until it's done to your taste!

Chasen Nasu

Hello! We have clear blue autumn sky almost daily since the last storm on Sunday! I enjoy walking to the station because there is a cool breeze outside :)

However, I am drowsy all the time. Last night, I couldn't stay up to finish my diary. Also, this morning, I couldn't wake up on time! It's too early to hole up...

Anyway, today I want to write about a traditional way to cut eggplant. Why I write this is because I want to translate my eggplant recipe which requires this preparation procedure ;)

The procedure is called "Chasen Nasu".
Nasu is eggplant. Chasen is a bamboo whisk for traditional Japanese tea ceremony called "sado". It is so named because they look similar.

---------------------------------
The image on the left shows the directions.
1. Use small eggplant. Put knife at the stem end, turn around, and make an incision around the stem end. 
2. Remove the stem part by hand.  
3. Make thin lengthwise cuts in eggplant.
* Pictures are from tepore.
---------------------------------


By the way, there are many other traditional ways to cut and peel ingredients in Japanese cooking! This site shows some examples.

I heard of vegetable surcharge the other day, but still not seeing the effect on the prices. We can still purchase 5 large eggplants (when in season) for 100yen (approx. $1)! Hope things won't get worse all of a sudden...

Today, the gym is closed, so I am thinking of going out for a dinner with my boyfriend! Believe it or not, I go to the gym every day for an hour!!!

You all have a nice evening, too :)
