Sunomono (Japanese Cucumber Salad)

2 medium cucumbers, peeled and seeded
2 teaspoons salt
1/3 cup rice vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons Kikkoman Soy Sauce
1/4 teaspoon grated fresh ginger root

Cut cucumbers into thin slices; place in bowl and sprinkle with salt. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes, or until cucumbers are softened. Drain and squeeze out excess liquid.

Combine vinegar, sugar, soy sauce and ginger in serving bowl; add cucumbers and mix well. Chill thoroughly before serving.
Makes 4 servings

Apple Kinton – Japanese Sweet Potato and Apple
What You Need
2-3 satsumaimo (a little over 1lb)
(Yams may be substituted)
3 tablespoons sugar
1 medium apple
lemon juice
dash of salt (optional)

What to Do
Steam or boil the satsumaimo until they are very soft when pierced with a fork (30-40 minutes). Or microwave them for about 10 minutes.
Remove from pan or microwave and let cool a bit. Peel off the skin with your fingers. Discard it.
Mash the satsumaimo using a fork or potato masher. This is fun. A food processor will do the job also.
Stir in the sugar.
Wash, peel and dice the apple. (If no chemical pesticides were used, the peel can be left on.) Soak in a bowl of water with a few drops of lemon juice so the apple won’t turn brown.
Drain the diced apple and mix into the satsumaimo. Check the taste. Add more sugar if you want it sweeter. Add a dash of salt if you like.
