  1. Natsukashi ne! One of the seaweeds I studied in Japan (for my MA thesis) was ao-nori, the special nori used on mochi for New Years. It is wrapped around the roasted mochi pieces and it is sooooo oishii (delicious)!!

      • I have never seen it sold outside of Japan. It is a very different variety and only grows in a couple of places on the Northeastern coast — it’s been so long I have forgotten (30 years ago) — I would have to go dig up my Master’s Thesis and reread it to know more! LOL I do remember it was a sort of spider webby sheet that they made and it was wrapped around the mochi right after it was roasted, so it was hot and crunchy. Yummy!
