Aburae (sesame) dishes

In the Edo period (1603-1868), oil from wild sesame was used for cooking food and lighting lamps. It is called "Aburae" in Hida Region and has been long used. Its unique and aromatic taste enhances various dishes as an ingredient in Japanese salad, Goheimochi (skewered sweet rice cakes served with soy sauce and miso) and Ohagi (pounded rice covered with bean paste).
