my mother often makes dried daikon. she still does.
she cut them thinly, dehydrated in breezy sunny
location for many days and conserve for a long time.
she often send us those daikon and homemade
pickles and etc...whatever she can find.
i noticed that every time when i received those,
they are always wrapped in pink paper.
ever since when we were little, she was our
mentor who showed us how to garnish each
dish with fresh green from the garden. she
would run to the backyard garden, find
small green, put them on the side of the plate
or on top of homemade food she had prepared.
having fresh green on each dish, it always made
simple, positive effect. food appearance changed
dramatically and tickled our appetite.
today, i soaked them in water for a while. will be
cooked and enjoy having them for dinner and
