Tasteless vegetables and sweet and gooey vegetables, I prepared both.
I hope that I can make seasonings from them according to my knowledge from Japan.
I’ll make starch from one and sugar from the other.
I want to increase the number of seasonings I can use aside from salt and fish sauce.
The tasteless vegetable has a familiar potatoish texture.
It’s a pity because it’s tasteless but from what I remember, potato starch came from potatoes.
And I remember how to make it.
I peeled and grated the tasteless vegetables first.
For this, I made my own grater.
The silver ore is very easy to use.
I need to be careful with my fingers though since it’s super sharp.
I put the tasteless vegetable in a cloth and mash the cloth in water with a rock bowl.
I mashed it earnestly.
It is lighter than I remembered but what I need came out from the squeezed fabric.
I squeeze the fabric with the ingredient firmly to get everything out.
I left the rock bowl for about 20 minutes.
This is the start of the heart throbbing part.
After 20 minutes, I gently dump out the water from the rock bowl.
If something was left at the bottom of the bowl, there’s a good chance that I succeeded.
「There it is.」
When I poured the water out, there’s a white thing left.
I put water in there again, stir, and leave it for 20 minutes.
I dump the water and repeat the process.
After pouring the water out for the third time, I transferred the remaining stuff on the bottom of the bowl to a plate and let it dry.
I dried it using magic. I crushed the white stuff and it became white powder.
I sprinkled it on the meat and fried it in oil.
This is only a trial so I’ll only fry 10 pieces.
The seasoning is salt.
…..finally tasting something this good after a long time, tears run out of my eyes.
A spiderling is hanging from the ceiling.
Keep it a secret for now because we only have a little starch.
I gave it a bribe.
All the remaining tasteless vegetables were turned into starch. I worked non-stop for 1 whole day to process them all.
Then, I remembered the existence of magic before I went to bed. Why did I punish myself by working manually!
Today is the time to challenge sugar-making with magic.
In Japan, sugar beet was used.
I heard that sugar beet is sweet and it is also gooey.
Thus, I chose a vegetable that is both sweet and gooey.
This vegetable looks a little creepy.
The color is purple and the surface is bumpy. Is this okay?
Maa, I have no choice but to try.
How do I make sugar….
I only glanced at my mother when she’s making some before so I am uneasy.
I think she boiled it.
Maa, let’s try boiling it.
If I want to boil out the sugar component, I probably need to cut it into small pieces.
Then, I put them into an iron pan, add water, and boil.
Lye came out.
If I don’t clean this, it might affect the taste.
Nothing changed after an hour.
I’m afraid that I failed but I can’t stop here.
Just a little more.
Ah, the purple color has deepened.
Did I succeed?
I took the fire out for now…..it’s not hardening.
I put it on fire again and after 30 minutes, the color became vivid.
I took the fire out again….it hardened.
I tried to crush a small piece for tasting…..sweet.
This is sweeter than the sugar I know and there’s also an umami taste.
I did it!
I used magic to boil down the rest…..but when I did, it failed.
I worked hard to boil them down manually and got a large amount of sugar.
Does magic have its weakness?
It’s great that I made a big pan so I finished boiling everything by evening.

I tried making teriyaki from the meat of the winged lizard.
I want white rice but it’s also delicious when I eat it with the leafy vegetables from trees.
I got scared of Koa and the others’ eyes so I made a lot.
I need more fish sauce.
