I love Japanese produce. So fresh. So organic. So yummy! There is something to be said for locally grown fruits and vegetables. I appreciate knowing my produce wasn't picked before it was ripe and sprayed with some chemical to make it LOOK ripe. Right now apples, kabocha squash (Japanese pumpkin), Mikan oranges, persimmons, figs and Naruto sweet potatoes are all in season. I love autumn! Every time I go to the checkout counter, my shopping cart is so colorful! Now I know why the Japanese live so long.

Isn't your mouth watering?!?!
I wasn't crazy about sweet potatoes.....until I tried these.
