Snow Carrots

Snow Carrots


In Tokyo I'm discovering ingredients I never see in America, like these carrots. Called yuki wari ninjin, they're buried under snow for months, a traditional mode of food preservation in Japan's snow country (in this case, Niigata). Not only does the snow stop spoilage, it lightly dehydrates the carrots and concentrates their flavor, so they taste extra sweet. Amazing.
