Rice Bran Bags;

 (posted; Soba Noodle page) 
       Hello friends; I do wish you all are doing fine whatever the extreme weather; 
              cold or hot, whichever you have.  
The other day, I've finally made 2 Rice Bran Bags from my husband's request after hesitating for a bit of long time. They are for the use of making his soba-tools burnished and also preventing soba-dough from sticking to the table or the rolling-pins.
So sorry for the brownish pictures; it was a cloudy day and it was due to the electric bulbs color of the lights (not the fluorescent bulbs) in his hobby room.  

      Soba making table and rolling pins he needs to wipe with the rice bran bag. 

Showing how he does (mind you, he never help me for the house chores p;)
I haven't used sewing machine after making these covers for his tools in the picture below about 3 and a half years ago when he started making soba. The machine is a really old one p;)  We need  to roast rice bran before putting them in the bag. 

Thank you very much for stopping by, Love You Always;


  1. How talented you are, my dear friend! I am fascinated by the soba making process and how this helps in it all. I think you two could have a business with this somehow~
