Amazing colour. It is natural colour, reaction by vinegar !!
It seems Red Shiso (red perilla) is effective for many things, such as improving eye sight, protecting from allergy, beautifying skin, etc !!
Moreover, this drink is yummy and make you refresh.
You can enjoy both hot and cold.
If you have Red Shio, why don’t you try to make this drink?
Cook Shiso leaves in the pot.
Then take all Shiso leaves out from the pot.
You only need this liquid after you cooked Shiso leaves. In another word, Shiso soup?
Add some sugar.
Then pour vinegar.
If you use fruits vinegar, the taste become more mild.
I used Apple vinegar.
Right after pouring vinegar, you can see the colour changes, from dark brown to amazing red colour.
Pour this liquid into the bottle to store. Keep in cool place.
If you add lemon juice at the end, it become nicer fresh flavor. ( I prefer with lemon!!)
What you made is liquid concentrate ♪
When you drink, just pour a little bit in your glass, then drink with water or soda water.
In summer, you can put Mint leaves on top with ice cubes.
It is nice refresh drink.
Good for party drink, too.
It is so good when you know there is home made pickles in your fridge.
You can always add this to your dinner as “one more taste” or “one more colour”
So! When you get vegetable, why don’t you make pickles?
When colourful vegetable meets vinegar, beautiful reaction will happen!
This is one of my favorite vegetable for pickling.
Colourful turpip ♪♪
First, cut them into bite-size pieces, just like this.
Then put them into suitable jar. (Please use hot water-heated jar with lid)
Then, pour sweet vinegar, (rice vinegar + sugar = make it your favorite sweetness vinegar)
No need to pour a lot of vinegar, just little bit is fine !!!, which is like…1 cm from bottom probably.
Gradually, water will come out from vegetable and your jar will be filled with liquid.
This is little tip for you!
Then store the jar up side down for first few hours.
When you open the jar, the upper part of vegetable is totally pickled if you put jar up side down ;-p
Later, you can just store the jar normally.
And~~~ that’s it.
You can enjoy home made pickles anytime you like.
