You Can Snack On Tasty Fried Leaves in Japan

l

Minoo City in Japan is famous for its Japanese Maple trees called momiji, and each year when the leaves change, they celebrate by creating momiji tempura. These fried leaves are first soaked in salt barrels for more than a year before being dipped in batter and fried up into a snack. This is a very old tradition with some saying it’s been around for 1000 years!
