October 2019 : AKI “The Japanese Autumn” Box

Thank you for subscribing to Kizuna Box!

Autumn has arrived.
Of course, we have the image of a lot of autumns, and many people may image of autumn leaves.
But, you can’t forget that it is the “harvest season”.
Vegetables and fruits that plenty of soaking up the sun in the summer are waiting to be harvested.
Regardless of the season, we can buy all kinds of vegetables and fruits all year round if we go to the store.
And, we can eat them throughout the year, but after all, it is the most delicious to eat in that season.

For example, “Aki-Nasu” (autumn eggplant).
“Nasu” is a summer vegetable in Japan, but “Nasu” which is pruned during the summer and fruited in autumn is very delicious.
Therefore, it is specially called “Aki-Nasu” (autumn eggplant).
A method to eat “Aki-Nasu” most deliciously is to eat in the autumn season.
It is better than any cooking method.
