How to Cook Fuki, Giant Butterbur

     These days, I have cooked fuki, which is called giant butterbur in English. Fuki is spring vegetable and is eaten in Japan from immemorial antiquity.
Stir-fried Fuki

       These fukis are grown in my parents home's yard, which is pretty spacious. My mother picked them from the yard the day before we cooked.

     I'm going to share how to cook fuki with you.

     Before cooking, you need to do aku-nuki, which is harshness removal.
1. Rub fukis with plenty of salt.
2. Let fukis sit for an hour.
3. Boil fukis with salt for a minute.
4. Then put them in cold water.
5. Peel the skin.

     After aku-nuki, you are ready to cook them.


1 tablespoon of oil
1 lb of fukis (cut them into an inch)
4 tablespoons of sugar
4 tablespoons of soy sauce

1. Heat oil in a pan over high heat, and stir-fry them.
2. Add sugar and soy sauce, and stir them until water evaporates.
3. Enjoy!
