I taught The Art of Sushi class today at my house since my husband is traveling this weekend.
I had young Indian couple and they are very interested in how to make tasty sushi at home.
Today’s menu is Hand Wrap Sushi/Inside Out Roll/Miso Soup/Green vegetable with Salt Koji.
They understood that making tasty sushi rice is very important for sushi making process. I used house grown Turnip for miso soup.

After the lecture, I walked trail and enjoyed short hike.
I had been growing organic vegetables for six years since 2009 in community garden plot in San Jose. But the community garden belongs to school’s property and the school will expand grades starting next year. So the school district needs more land and decided to use community garden plot for school.
I broke down railing and moved pole brace to friends house who want to make front yard vegetable garden.
I harvested Komatsuna today, and made Komatsuna with sesame dish. Even it is very big but still tender and tasty.
