Surume, dried squid

Surume, dried squid, Kyoto, Japan

These dried squids are called surume in Japanese and one of the typical appetizer for drinking, especially going well with beers. We usually eat them with a little mayonnaise and powdered red pepper after roasted lightly and torn up in long and thin.

This is a little hard and many bites are needed to swallow down, but the more bite, the more tasty, unlike chewing gam.

In Spain we dehydrate chestnuts curing them near the fire. We call it "castaña (chestnut) pilonga". I ate "surume" (most delicious thing)in Japan, thirty years ago, and it reminded me the dried chestnuts of my spanish homeland. As Macky says, the more you chew the hard "pilonga", it becomes more tasteful.

Dried squid is actually one of my favorites. I, at least, eat it twice a month. Don't you ever feel that you would like to eat something when you watch TV on your couch. Then dried squid could be the answer even though some of my american friends said that thaey can smell the dead from squids. ^_^
