Mitoku Shredded Sun-Dried Daikon

Giant white radish (daikon) is the most popular vegetable in Japan, and Japanese cooking is impossible to imagine without it. Mitoku Sun-Dried Daikon is made the traditional way, by simply shredding the fresh daikon and leaving it to dry in the sun during the clear, dry days of winter. After shredding, it is laid out on rice mats (tatami) to dry outside in the sun for several weeks.
