Spring when you want to start something new. At the vegetable counter, I suddenly caught my eye on spring carrots and thought, "Let's make Nukazuke."
However, making the bran floor by yourself is an image that it takes time and effort to mix and age the ingredients. In the first place, I'm worried if I can season it well ...
So, I tried this time with a bran pickled kit called "My Nukazuke" sold by the organic farm "Kanazawa Daichi". Only domestic rice bran grown without relying on pesticides or chemical fertilizers is used as the raw material, so you can start with peace of mind. The price is 1,512 yen (tax included) and can be purchased from the official website or "Ange web shop".
Below, I will introduce the points that the author of "super beginner" felt "this can be done".
Part 1: Can be made from the day it arrivesTo make a bran floor, it is necessary to mix raw bran, salt, water, etc., throw it away, and ripen it. But with "My Nukazuke", you can use it immediately by opening the Nukazuke in the pack. The attached tapper can be used as a storage container as it is, so there is no need to prepare a container.
Beginners can rest assured that the instruction manual also describes the preparation method and the pickling time for each vegetable. Basically, it seems that the trick is to do salt fir well.
Part 2: "Slightly pickled" sizeThe bran floor contains 1 kg, and the amount that can be pickled at one time is about 1 to 2 cucumbers. Even if you don't feel like "let's make nukazuke", you can make it with the surplus vegetables, so the hurdles will be much lower.
After pickling vegetables, they are stored in the refrigerator, but it is also a nice point that they are compact and can be stored anywhere. If you place it in a place where you can easily see it, you will not have to worry about forgetting it.
Here is the one that has been soaked for about 12 hours. Everything was delicious!
I tried various other things, but I recommend it because the processed cheese was really delicious. It's the best snack for sake!
