Myoga 茗荷

Myoga 茗荷, Zingiber mioga, is the edible flower bud of a variety of ginger that grows in Japan and Korea. It has a lovely crunchy texture with a mild ginger tang. It has a fresh flavor that acts as a palate cleanser and stimulates the appetite. However, too much myoga is thought be lead to forgetfulness.
