eat at your own risk | mochi

mochi1

the warning labels on packages of asian foods can be quite amusing / the warnings are polite, emphatic & very precise and sometimes can be funnily dire <will feature in future posts, the chestnuts one are good>\ here it is for mochi – traditionally for the japanese new year but eaten year-round as well \ it is made of glutinous rice & is chewy | gummy when eaten <so chew slowly! & supervise old people | can glue to dental appliances!> / above are the mochi sweets | stuffed with sweetened red or black bean paste or peanut jam \ variations are mochi coated with sesame seeds <favorite!> or with a light peanut or sugar coating / love this fun <but potentially hazardous> food! 🙂
