Wild vegetable tasting "Horsetail"

I found some shoots(stems?) of field horsetail.

It's still cold but spring is getting closer day by day.

I pick them up with my daughter.

these shoots are edible so we tried them.

Soaking them in water to get rid of harshness. (Better to boil them.)

Fried them with soy sauce and sugar(mirin sake).


It was pretty good taste.

Many wild vegetables or herbs are coming out in springtime. It's so fun to taste them.

No need to look after them they just grow naturally and organically.

I imagine that hunter and gathering era people could not wait to see spring.

And my DNA might remember the taste and my body gets energized by eating wild plants.

Now I feel I'm so rich.
