Nita kumoji (boiled pickles)

"Kumoji" meaning pickles was a word used in royal courts during the Heian period (794-1185/1192). The origin lies in the fact that in those days pickles that soured in spring time were not thrown away but boiled and seasoned to be offered as food. This item was created out of the effort to make good use of food materials.
