"Broccoli" is rich in nutrients such as carotene, calcium, and iron, with vitamin C twice as much as lemon.
You can see them all year round at supermarkets, but Kagawa Prefecture's winter is at its peak. This time, Kaji-san will eat!
Broccoli in Kagawa Prefecture?
Kaji-san who came to Manno-cho is actually the first time to see a broccoli field.
Immediately when the producer, Ono-san, guides you to the field, Kaji-san Kyotong? "Eh, is this cabbage?"
Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable like cabbage. The leaves are similar. But if you take away the big green leaves, you will find the familiar broccoli. Moreover, Kagawa Prefecture is even more surprised to hear that it is the fourth largest producer in Japan.
But broccoli in Kagawa prefecture still had a wonderful secret.
Flower buds are large, stems are thick and sweet!
"Kagawa broccoli is thick, soft and sweet."
Certainly, unlike broccoli often seen in supermarkets, Kagawa Prefecture has thick stems! "There are a variety of" Kagawa prefecture-originated ideas "that are packed with ice to maintain freshness and quality, shipped with leaves to improve the appearance at stores, and now follow other production areas. It is. "
People in the production area who are thinking about not only cultivation but also shipping and store appearance.
Mr. Kaji unexpectedly drops his mind.
Because the stem is thick, for various dishes
"Kagawa's broccoli can be eaten up to the stalk, so it can be used for a variety of dishes."
When you visit Ohno's home, you will find various broccoli dishes. "Fried food, boiled Chinese cabbage rolls, gratin, kimchi, soup, pickled in sweet and sour ... can you do this?"
Kaji's tasting one after another! "The broccoli stalks in the chikuwa! The chewy texture. Soup, sweet! Pickled in sweet vinegar is the best snack for sake."
And this time, it is the emergence of "mochi with broccoli"!
Sample colorful broccoli mochi!
When Mr. Ohno puts the paste of the flower buds and leaves of the broccoli into the mochi-stick, a bright green mochi is born. Kaji himself packs and rounds anko.
Soft and slightly warm, freshly pickled mochi! "It has a good smell of broccoli-it also has a sweet taste. This is cool."
Mr. Kaji, who enjoyed the delicious and nutritious broccoli from Kagawa Prefecture, ran to the next report in search of a wonderful encounter with local products.
