Our culture can be seen as quirky so it is an honor and privilege to read these words; especially coming from you! Makes me proud to be Japanese. Thank you for sharing on your blog!
Wow. This is the best articulation of yama imo I have ever seen and I love that you eat yama imo like we (the Japanese) do. It's also amazing how you eat umeboshi -- it is an acquired taste! Do you also put slivers of unflavored nori on top? We cut slim pieces from the large sushi/hand roll nori as a garnish; that adds another dimension to the flavor combinations. Almost ocean-like.

Thank you kindly for answering my question! I, too, remember Land o' Lakes wrapped in foil and that was the exact reason my mother (traditional Japanese) only cooked with Land o' Lakes. When they switched the packaging, she complained the paper disrupted the taste, and shaved the outer layers before use hahaha. My mother passed away a few years ago but your response triggered some fond memories. I hope you keep blessing us with continued updates on your blog. One entry and one comment expanded my recipe index while making my heart smile. Thank you, for being you!

Hi Ruth, thank you so much for sharing the recipe. One question: what kind of butter do you use?
