Preserving Whole Foods

Many people may think eating already made food is not good for their health because of preservatives are added in the food.

Here is a TED talk video that talks how you can preserve food by yourself so you have extra unneeded preservatives in your food.

Preserving is also a great way to save money so if you feel you want to store some whole foods for later, try this method of preserving food.

Hope you enjoy this video!


Karaage – Japanese style fried chicken

Well Known Fact: Sushi is a Japanese food.
But normally Japanese people don’t make Sushi at home.

From my experience, a lot of  Americans know about Sushi. But what many don’t know it that we don’t make Sushi at home. As a Japanese person, I would like to introduce a Japanese food that we cook at home.

My recommendation is eating Karaage with white rice.

Here’s the recipe below!
