I will explain about the potatoes used in our shop
1. Features of natural life
The yam used in the potato soup Toro Honmaru is a yam called [natural raw].
Yamanoimo native to the Japanese archipelago since ancient times is a rare Japanese yam.
Natural life that has cultivated the health of the Japanese since ancient times is a treasure trove of health power given by the mountain god!
Because it grows naturally, it is called "natural life", and "natural potato" is a popular name.
On the aerial part of natural life,
Vine leaf (vine): It grows along the surrounding trees from early summer to summer. It becomes golden yellow in autumn.
Mukogo: Natural raw grain. It is called a phantom wild vegetable because of its short period.
Mukago is very nutritious and can be boiled, roasted, or eaten delicious as Mukago rice.
In the natural underground,
Root: The upper part of the germination point is called the kappa head.
Stone: Since it often winds to extend to the bottom of the earth while avoiding rocks and hard soil, it is also called the root of the mysterious staff of the hermit.
The winding natural life is genuine proof.
2. About cultivation management of natural life
In the past it was said that matsutake mushrooms and natural raw (natural yams) could not be grown.
However, in recent years, research has shown that natural vegetation (natural potatoes) can be raised if the environment is properly prepared in mountain soil suitable for growth, and rare natural resources are protected.
Even if you say “Jinjo” (natural potato) in a bite, it is from pin to drill.
In our shop, we use only carefully selected high quality varieties from a wide variety of naturally growing potatoes (natural potatoes).
We are proud of the flavor and texture that we can not taste elsewhere,
At the same time, the more delicious it is, the more sensitive it is to environmental changes and the more difficult it is to grow.
The weather of each year and the front and back of the crop have a great effect.
In our shop, we provide such raw preservation for 12 months, 1 month, 1 week, 1 week, 1 day.
By taking that management system, we use precious natural life carefully.
3. How to identify the real raw (natural potato)
Flavor is condensed in the skin of Jinjo.
The skin of Jinjo (natural yam) is thinner than other yams, and it can be said that it can be eaten with the whole skin.
Considering the real pleasure of Japanese food, which cooks the whole thing, cooking on a skin-by-skin basis is a flavorful and optimal way to taste.
Commercially available skins, such as yam and yam, are thick and unsavory, whereas natural raw skins are thin and can be eaten together with the skin.
The skin is grated together with the skin so that the skin is the most packed with flavor and nutrition so that you can eat the whole skin.
The grated aku is also the vitality of a highly functional plant.
The black changing ak is also a real proof.
A strong proof is also a real proof.
4. "Natural raw" is a super food rich in functional ingredients.
Many alien species imported in recent years require fertilizers and pesticides to control pests, but `` natural raw '', which has grown natively in Yamano, Japan since ancient times, has its natural wild power. It grows without fertilizers and pesticides.
Components such as polyphenols for self-defense and many enzymes and components to survive in harsh environments are stored in the underground potato section and the vine granulated mukago.
Needless to say, this "natural life" is an important food and fits the constitution of the Japanese who has been able to connect life for many years. It is "soul food" and the reason why it is "super food".
I think rich life is not about luxury.
Isn't it a life where you can enjoy nature naturally while spending time and effort, and enjoy slowly and carefully? That is the best nutrition for both body and mind.
“Natural life” (natural potatoes) may teach us the ancient way of thinking.
