The green seeds this lady is picking are 'sansho', a very nice Japanese spice / condiment.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Mmm, I like sansho too, but I've never seen it fresh like this. So green!

Very educational. I've been here over half my life and I had never heard of this.

@Mike Cash: It's the green powder you often find in yakitori places, usually together with the spicy red shichimi, in 2 little glass jars Never had it? Goes very well with buta bara and kimo!
