How do you enjoy sakura cherry blossom? Why don’t you try to make this Sakura shiozuke (pickled preserved sakura cherry blossom)? The cherry blossom is an edible flower, and once pickled you can enjoy the lovely pink colour throughout year. I prefer to make it with Yaezakura (double cherry blossoms), but it’s possible with other types too. It can be used for sweets such as biscuits and also savoury foods such as sakura gohan (cherry blossom mixed rice). Enjoy making it and enjoy to using with your imagination!
