Japanese food ~15~ mozuku

Today's okazu was mozuku at dinner.
"Okazu" means "side dishes".
The typical Japanese dish is consisted of Gohan(=rice) and Okazu(=side dish)
Here is the mozuku.
  Mozuku is a kind of seaweed. I think there are many kinds of seaweed in Japanese food
such as wakame, konbu, nori and so on.
  Can you guess what the yellow stuff above???
 That is the a chrysanthemum.
Usually, a chrysanthemum taste bitter. So I really don't like that.
But the chrysanthemum I had today did not taste anything.
 Maybe a chrysanthemum is just for enjoying the color.
 Mozuku is in the vinegar. So this dish tastes sour.

Do you want to try it?

I don't know if you can eat this mozuku at Japanese restaurant in your country.

Thanks for reading!
