BEAN SPROUTS *RERUN
Bean sprouts are harvested all year and have long been a favorite addition to a healthy diet. All they need is water to grow, so during a food shortage, harsh temperatures, or even after disasters like the Great East Japan Earthquake, bean sprouts are here to save the day. Our reporter, Kyle, visits a farm in Aomori Prefecture that cultivates 40-centimenter-long bean sprouts using hot spring water. Also, feast your eyes on local dishes featuring the produce.
