Konnyaku no Tosani

When I was writing up my last post about konnyaku, I got hungry for it again, so I chose it for this meal. Yusuke and I tagged-team to prepare Just Hungry’s recipe for Konnyaku no Tosani. Yusuke even figured out how to make the cool twisty konnyaku strips. Basically, we just boiled the konnyaku, changed the water, and then boiled it with more water and dashi, soy sauce, mirin, sake, and ginger. We ate it topped with more ginger, sesame seeds, green onions, and bonito flakes. Our accompanying soup was miso with wakame and tofu. Yusuke also decided he needed fried eggs to slake his hunger after kendo practice.

This post also marks a new era of better food photos. We had planned to buy a new digital camera in Japan, but the loonie is absolutely wretched against the yen at the moment, so it was less expensive to just buy one here (Yusuke managed to find something suitable amidst the stone age technology of North America). I still have lots of old pictures kicking around that I might use, but the photography will, I hope, improve.
