This is a recipe for kusa-mochi (yomogi mochi).
This is kusa-mochi made with yomogi, a plant that can only be eaten fresh at this time of year. I found some soft yomogi down by the river and it made me want to make these.
Fresh yomogi is very delicious but for those who feel uncomfortable picking it (there is a poisonous plant that looks very similar) or can't get hold of it, you can buy it safely by mail order.
