Today’s spice is「Alpinia zerumbet」

Alpinia zerumbet

! [] (

Okinawa herbs, Alpinia zerumbet. It contains more polyphenols than wine and it seems to have antioxidant action.
It is a very refreshing fragrance, it is sold in lotions etc. from its efficacy.
Unfortunately we can not see the flowers at this time because it is a plant with white flowers bloom around May, but in Okinawa it seems to be a plant planted around there. Will it look like bamboo leaves?

Tsukimo, it was not the target from the beginning.
It is not an exaggeration to say thanks to the fact that the antenna of the spice was standing but it is the cafeteria of Naha city where there is meeting.
So, I ate spice curry. At that time, spice rather than Alpinia zerumbet! What? I jumped to.
So, when you look at the menu

Alpinia zerumbet curry

Is not it written as!

Alpinia zerumbet? ゲットウ? what’s that. . But I have written Okinawa’s spice. . I have to confirm the taste here, and challenge.
What incense is fresh. Flavor is honest, taste of Alpinia zerumbet, bitter? Astringent? I do not know what it is.
However, other spices were included, so delicious ~!!
I do not feel stylish in instruments, but curry and rice are also free to change on self-service.

When telling this story to the instructor,
Because moon peach is not a thing to buy, I got a leaf of the fresh moon peach growing, so that it goes to take it.
I want to try making it myself, challenge Alpinia zerumbet curry tonight ^^;

Recipe, at a later date.

  1. Does your site have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an email. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.
