Chinese onions brimming with vitality, pickled in a light brine.
Tottori sand dunes are a famous symbol of the prefecture. Sakyu rakkyo (sand dune Chinese onions) grown in this unique natural environment are white in color, and boast a crisp texture thanks to the minute fibers. Fundamentally, sand dunes are not suited to growing any crops, and people say that is why the rakkyo grown here are so brimming with vitality. Rakkyo grown here are salted, then pickled in a mixture of heated mirin, sugar, and vinegar. Sakyu rakkyo pickles are known for their fresh flavor and are also great with chili to add kick.
