The New Year's Traditional Food Events in Japan 七草粥と鏡開き

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments


Hi,Thanks for coming to my blog.
Do you know the new year's traditional food events such as Nanakusagayu and Kagamibiraki?
There are some special traditional food events during the year in Japan.
Nanakusagayu is rice porridge with the seven grasses of spring,
and we usually eat it for breakfast on January 7 as a way of wishing for good health throughout the year.
And we usually take down kagamimochi( mirror-shaped rice cakes used in New Year's displays), divided up,
and cook Zenzai(Oshiruko) with sweet red beans soup on January 11. We call it Kagamibiraki.
I made Nanakusagayu and Zenzai(for Kagamibiraki) and ate them with my family this year too.
I wish we all have good health and happiness!

Hi Mittanr

You are really a good wife and mother.

To tell the truth, I've never cooked Nanakusagayu
and Zenzai.
I don't know why, but if there is a reason ,the reason is
that I don't care about those traditions or I have to go to work on January 7th and I have no time to prepare
Nanakusagayu. I don't know well.
I like mochi very much but I have hated 鏡モチ with mold.
Even if mold is taken away, I taste something bad in my

After I got married, I gave all my kagamimochi to my mother-in-law!!!
What a bad bride I am!!!

Hi, ダイエット妄想ママsan,
Thank you very much for your comment!
I like events like these annual events in Japan.
But, I don't like Kagamimochi with mold too, OF COURSE!
