I gathered a cup or so of leaves from my new little mugwort plants, and I'd love to hear ideas for using it in recipes --any ideas very welcome!

mugwort = yomogi!

Wow, I didn't know what mugwort was actually, so I looked it up and voilà! Now I know that mugwort = wormwood = yomogi! OMG I have missed fresh yomogimochi for ages, and now I know I could make it if I can get a hold of wormwood. Thanks mosaica! (Basically yomogimochi is blanched and finely chopped yomogi kneaded into the mochi dough, then wrapped around azuki an...not much of a recipe I know but i'd need to make it myself first ^_^)

Re: Mugwort ideas?

Oh yes, I think it was a mochi I heard of! I'm so looking forward to trying this too. I'll research yomogimochi (between trout fishing & bean patch weeding) and report back. Thank you Maki!
