marukoshi

mamekyu by marukoshi Sunday while shopping for some ingredients for dinner, we came upon a tsukemono display. They were selling different types, 3 (120 gram packages) for 1080 yen (tax included).

Marukoshi is a Nagoya tsukemono maker that has been in business since 1914...

Satoshi, the taster, tried almost all the different ones that the guy had out.

I didn't taste any of them but picked out these...

Mamekyu (mame = beans, kyu = short for kyuri (cucumber). I really liked the hits of ginger in this one.

daikon with sakura gelee by marukoshi Cubed daikon with a sakura gelee.

The sakura flavor is so "springy". My only peeve is that they don't use sugar but an artificial sweetener...boo!

spicy gobo by marukoshi Spicy gobo..basil, garlic. An "Italian" flavor.

Different but each one so good!
