Mentaiko Jyagariko

Posted by

Another in an occasional series featuring my favourite snacks from Japan - Jyagariko. http://digitalguff.aminus3.com/tag/jyagariko/

There are many regional varieties of these little potato sticks - these ones are from Kyushu, flavoured with the region's famous mentaiko (spicy pollock / cod roe).

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!

I initially thought they were firecrackers - perhaps that comes later !
