Sushi

Hello there! It’s getting colder here. How have you been?

Today I want to write about sushi. Do you know that we have so many different kinds of sushi?

Nigiri is the most popular and famous in the world.

Besides Nigiri, we have so many different kinds of sushi. I don’t think I can mention everything, but I want to mention some which I am familiar with.

A couple of days ago, I made Chirashi. This is home-made sushi.

I mixed dried veggies, mushrooms, tiny fish called jyako, eggs, raw sermon, cucumbers, fish paste called kamaboko, renkon (Japanese vegetable) and so on. Since it’s easy for fixing, I make this often.

I was born and grew up close to Kyoto. In Kyoto we have hako-zushi.

My favorite one is the brown ones. They are grilled eels.

I lived in Wakayama prefecture with my hubby 20 years ago. Kakinoha-shushi is really popular there. It looks like hako-zushi, but the difference is after we make the sushi, we wrap it with a fruit (persimmon) leaf.  I love kakinoha-shushi too!

Next is my mom’s favorite! I didn’t like the sushi for a long time, but recently I came to like it. Saba-sushi is made from a vinegar flavored  mackerel.

The last one is called Masu-zushi. This is a bigger version of kakinoha-sushi, but after we make the sushi, we wrap it with bamboo leaves. The sushi is local food of Toyama. Since my father in-law’s hometown is Toyama prefecture, we often get the sushi from him. The red fish is a trout.

Which one looks yummy for you? Which one do you want to try out?

All have different flavors and all are good!

I hope this blog entry helps to learn about sushi more.

Have a lovely day! See you around next weekend here again!

    Hi, Yumi. Good post. I love the beauty of your pictures; they make sushi look even more delicious. The one that caught my attention most was hako-zushi. They are so pretty. I’ve never tried them before, and they are the ones that I’d definitely want to try when I get a chance.

      Hi, Daka-san!

      Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving the comment! I do appreciate you a lot! Hako-zushi is really good. When you come over Kyoto, you should try it out!

      Hi, Gay!

      Thanks for visiting my blog again! You should try sushi out with me next time! This year I brought some ingredients for sushi, but we didn’t cook it. Yuki got it, right? Next year I will bring the stuff again and cook it for you. I am sure you will like it. The home-made sushi is not fishy. I don’t use fish for the sushi for you.

      Well, we have both peanut butter and bread, but you know I don’t like both right?

    I love all of your posts and photography. I think I am like Dixie and would like the Chirashi. I am very interested to see how you came out in the earthquake. I have prayed for your safety. Love and Hugs from Tennessee!
