The maple leaf might be the national symbol for Canadians, but in Japan, fried maple leaf is a tasty snack to be devoured with gusto. Although it might be the ultimate fall treat, there is much to work to be had before indulging in a fried maple leaf or two. Not only do they have to be collected once every turn of the season, the leaves are then preserved in salt for more than a year.
Once properly prepared, the maple leaves are fried in a sweet batter for about 20 minutes, resulting in a dessert that is not only tasty, but pretty as well. Dubbed 'momiji,' the fried maple leaf is made by the Japanese people of Minoo City.
