Dover Yomogi 和酒 蓬
Country of Origin: Japan
- Yomogi, or Japanese mugwort, is an extremely aromatic herb that is traditionally used in Japanese cuisine, for example by cooking the leaves and processing them with sweet mochi rice. In Taiwan, however, the leaves are fried or added to soups. The plants are very large and evergreen and have green, flaky, finely cut leaves. The hardy plant thrives in most climates and is traditionally used in Eastern medicine. Mugwort is closely related to wormwood, but is less bitter and much milder in taste.
