Ready-made Osechi

Some traditional foods are pre-packaged to cut down on all the cooking. Department stores sell food arranged in boxes. It can be transferred to the traditional lacquer boxes. This is the salty soy sauce covered dried fish.

Sweet black beans.

Small dried shrimp.

Ham. About six inches long.

Thinly sliced smoked salmon from Russia.

Packaged pre-cooked vegetables. Baba cooks her own.

Packaged kamaboko.

This is how kamaboko looks before it is cut.

Chestnuts. We bought these and other things to eat at our house upstairs for the rest of the holiday.
