A Couple Things

This blog post is going to be a little short in that I recently sprained (maybe broke, but probably just sprained) my hand playing basketball and typing is not as easy as it usually is.

I’ve talked a bit about our growing kuromai rice (black rice), but I’ve not posted a pic of it.  So here’s that:

We harvested about 4 or 5 30kg bags of this.  That’s not a lot, compared with the white rice, but you don’t eat the black rice the same way as white.  I guess you could, but I haven’t tried it yet.  Usually you just mix a tablespoon or so of it in with a batch of white rice.  It’ll turn the rice purple once it’s cooked and give the rice a more grainy taste.

And now for something completely different…  I present to you sushi from one of Sado’s conveyor-belt sushi restaurants:

Whoever thought up this design for the sushi is genius.

  1. You might not even remember us but your Mom is Reggie’s cousin. We got a Christmas letter from her and it gave your blog info. It’s been a really long time since we saw you or your family but we think of you often and it’s really interesting to hear about your new career. We wish you luck in farming (sounds like it’s going well). We’ll try to check out your blog again later.

    Best wishes.
    Reggie & Millie
