MOCHI party
 
Mochitsuki2008

     On December 30th some Rits friends and I went to make mochi the traditional way at Expohouse. Apparently, making mochi before the New Year brings good luck and I sure hope so! The first step in the mochi making process was steaming the rice using a giant gas powered steamer. It was a cold day so we all gathered around the steamer to keep warm as we drank hot coffee and tea. After the rice was steamed it was put in a big stone bowl and we all took turns pounding the rice with a huge wooden mallet. Sometimes after a strong swing of the mallet little pieces of rice shot out of the bowl causing everyone to duck for cover!
     After a few minutes of pounding, the rice pretty much looked like mochi. Then it was time for us all to test out our sculpting skills as we molded the mochi into small balls. There was a big table covered with flour and we gathered around to shape the large ball of sticky mochi into smaller bit-sized pieces. At this stage, the warm mochi was ready to eat. Some ate it plain, others chose to fill it with red bean paste, and both options were great!
