Japan has done it again– having come up with another wonderful gadget for our world and this time it has to do with hearts, stars, and cucumbers. Yeah, that’s what I said…CUCUMBERS.
Here’s how it works:
When the cucumber is still small it is put into a heart shaped container and allowed to grow. In Japan they call it heart-stick and it can be found in supermarkets throughout Tokyo Midtown, Ropongi. Stars and Hearts appear when you cut the cucumbers and these shaped veggies can be used in your favorite stir-fry, or for the child in all of us it’s a perfect memento reminding us of how fun snacks can be!
