Uzuki in Satsuki: May
The East Japan earthquake happened on March 11th.
My deep thoughts are with all the people in the devastated areas.
Also we thank you so very much for thinking of Japan and helping us in many ways.

New onion stew a la Uzuki; Japanese farci?
New onions are soft and sweet. Simmer in dashi(Japanese broth) with a little mirin(sweet rice wine) and soysauce, try not to destroy onion's mild flavour.
