Gobo Frenzy

I ate gobo (burdock root) for the first time in Koriyama with av-san.

We asked the restaurant owner what it was, and he brought the long long root out of the kitchen to show us.

I found gobo and a recipe at home, and now I make kimpira gobo pretty regularly.

Last year I found some burdock plant starts at a market back home.

Mrguy did the growing, and we harvested this mad tangle of roots last week:

From which I made pickled gobo:

And our very own kimpira gobo:

Couldn't let the harvest pass without celebrating it.
