Sake Tidbit - Sake Is Medicinal

Posted by Beau Timken in 2012, July, Newsletter
From the Glossary of a Japanese cookbook called "The Enlightened Kitchen - Fresh Vegetable Dishes from The Temples of Japan," by Mari Fujii (2005):

"Sake is wine made from rice. Although Buddhist monks avoid alcohol, sake is often used as a seasoning in cooking, or for medicinal purposes. A little sake is often said to be 'the best of all medicines' because it stimulates the circulation, and relieves stress and insomnia. When cooked rice seems a little too firm, 1 or 2 tablespoons of sake will soften it."
