    Instructions
    1. Cut off the green part. We will only need white part for Shiraga Negi. Cut the white part into 2 to 1 ½ inch pieces.

    4. Cut the white part thinly into thin julienned strips.

    5. Soak in cold water for 10 minutes to remove bitterness and drain well. Put it in an air-tight container or cover with plastic wrap. We use Shiraga Negi to garnish Chashu, Kakuni, etc.
