焼きとうもろこし




today i made yakitomorokoshi!! it is one of my favourite snacks! the other day my friend gave me a bag of kahuku corn (which is the best corn in hawaii), so i thought i would make this delicious japanese summer snack!

Hello =D
stumbled into your blog
when I was searching for
Ponyo images, and intently
loved your space here. . .
especially this music you
have playing.
Can you please give me the
title of this song.
I did try searching for
daremo shiranai 'Gontiti'
but cannot find this
particular song. . .
thank you ^^

jenna:
thank you! im glad it is inspiring to you too!!

aixx:
me tooo!! i wonder if they still make it? haha

debbie:
after boiling the corn and taking off the husks, you grill it with a special sauce. some use shoyu (soy sauce) and mirin (and/or sugar), but i used this prepared sweetened teriyaki sauce they sell here. im sure there are different ways to cook it :-)

r.k.z:
wow, thank you so much! im so glad you like it :-)
the band it called Gontiti, and they are playing the song they featured in the movie "dare mo shiranai". gontiti plays a similar/but slightly different version of this song on of of their albums, which, i dont know. i just downloaded a bunch of their songs before on limewire and luckily found it. but here it is on youtube:

(heres a secret) to download this song from the youtube page as an MP3 file, type the word "fire" after youtube (in the URL, before .com) and it will take you to a japanese download page. then click MP3, then it will take you to two more pages where you click a highlighted button in the window....i hope that works for you :-)
