How to Make Matsutake Clear Soup (Pine Mushroom Osuimono) - Video Recipe

Matsutake Clear Soup is very simple and aromatic. You can even enjoy a small piece of Matsutake :)

Matsutake is also called pine mushroom. It is usually found at the foot of pine tree, very expensive mushroom because of its rarity. Price varies depending on the area of production.


Recently, my mom said worm-eaten ones sold at discounted prices are really good and affordable, so I tried them out. Yes! They are truly great. They are worth to try!!!

BTW, I usually get Matsutake at Takashimaya (高島屋) department store in Futakotamagawa (二子玉川) ;)
