Aomori is the top producer of many products in Japan.
The prefecture offers unique, locally sustained products.
When edamame grows, it becomes into soybean. However, the fruit becomes stiff and less tasty if harvested too late. Edamame farmers harvest at the perfect time (morning and evening when the temperature is cooler) and keep them fresh. Edamame is also a suitable ingredient for miso soup, as the pods seep out the bean's unique “dashi” (broth soup) and “umami” flavor. You can also add a bit of chili pepper, pepper, or sansho pepper to taste and enjoy a variety of miso soups! more
