Following the very old custom, today, January 7th, I cooked rice porridge with seven kinds of herbs of spring time. As many of you may know, one of the herbs is Japanese parsley that appears in the article I posted yesterday. When cooking the porridge, I used packed herbs I bought at a nearby grocery store and some long-forgotten sticky rice for pounding “mochi”, which fortunately caused no problems.
