Tsukemono, or Japanese pickles, have come a long way from being just a simple dish paired with rice. They're made using a variety of ingredients and seasonings from all regions of Japan. There was a time when Nukazuke, the most common type, was being prepared in nearly every household. Its mild aroma — a product of fermentation — always evokes a feeling of nostalgia. In recent years, tsukemono has gained traction as a health food. Learn quick and easy recipes and check out an interesting collaboration with Danish food preservation culture. (Reporter: Kyle Card)
