Nagai togarashi, they are local green sweet peppers.
I’ve filled them with sakekasu (sake lees) mixed with minced onion, paprika, turmeric, salt, a little olive oil and lots of cumin.

栗黄金 kurikogane (chestnut yellow gold potato) is the princess of sweet potatoes. It is cultivated in Kagoshima, Kyushu. It’s very sweet and flavorful. They make high quality shochu liquor with it.
