Fried Maple Leaves: Tasty Japanese Autumn Snack

Did you know that some people eat Japanese Maple leaves?  Yes, that’s right, leaves. They’re actually quite tasty.

But! These are not just regular leaves collected off the ground and then fried. They are preserved in salt barrels for over a year. Then, they’re taken out of the salt and are fried in a delicious, slightly sweet batter for over twenty minutes until they are crisp.
