Japanese Mugwort Soba Noodles
Has anyone tasted these?
I have quite a large Asian noodle collection (LOVE to try different types in different recipes), & my mom sent me a package of pale green Japanese Soba noodles flavored with Mugwort that I've been putting off trying, even tho I do have a recipe for it.
Now I know from my past & more intense herbal days (I used to do herbal landscaping, & talks, etc., etc.) that Mugwort (which grows virtually everywhere as a roadside weed) is considered a medicinal herb & is supposed to be extremely bitter. I've never tasted it, but do like the fragrance. (And oddly enough, I used to have a horse who LOVED to eat the stuff - lol!!!)
Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone here had ever had the Mugwort-flavored variety of soba noodles & could give me an idea of what they taste like.
