Comfort Food Easy Homemade Nametake (Marinated Enoki Mushrooms)

This makes a large amount of nametake, so you can use as much as you like.

Enoki mushrooms
2 packets (200 g x 2)
Mirin
30 ml
Soy sauce
30 to 40 ml
Dashi stock granules
About 4 g
Water
50 ml

Steps

1. Remove the roots of the enoki mushrooms and cut into half.
2. Put all the ingredients except for the mushrooms in a small pan and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to medium, and add the mushrooms while shredding them into small clumps. Stir for 2 minutes with cooking chopsticks.
3. Cover with a lid and simmer over low heat for another 2 minutes.
4. Uncover the pot. If the contents look thick, it's done.

Story Behind this Recipe

This is my mother's recipe. She's a great cook.
I've been used to this since I was small, so I can't eat commercial nametake.
Even when I'm overseas, this nametake is something I can rely on, so I find it indispensable.
