Generous Friends

Little hands put to work shelling peas given to us yesterday evening.

We're making mame gohan in our rice cooker. This is the recipe according to my friend. 3 cups rice, 2 tablespoons sake, 1 teaspoon Japanese dashi, 2 teaspoons salt, water as indicated for three cups of rice and fresh (or frozen) peas, about 2 cups.

I hope it works out.

    sounds like a lot of salt. and i don't add any dashi. but it should turn out ok. How was it???

    my kids just love mame gohan. and isn't it fun putting kids to work shelling peas!!!!!

  2. It was OK thanks Jan. I didn't measure the salt, but it was more like a teaspoon. I put dashi but I won't next time, probably tomorrow as we have a lot left.
    Little Guy was excellent at shelling, Biggie joined in late in the piece and his went flying everywhere.
