Aso Japanese Chestnut PuddingAso Japanese Chestnut Pudding" is a pudding made with Japanese chestnuts grown by about 50 producers in the Aso region of Kumamoto Prefecture. The pudding has a smooth, melt-in-your-mouth texture that combines the crunchiness of the chestnuts with the gentle sweetness and aroma of the chestnuts. The authentic taste of Japanese chestnuts, which have been attracting more and more attention in recent years with the appearance of specialty stores, can be enjoyed at home in an easy way.
Aso is an attractive area with rich nature characterized by spring water, clean air, and lower temperatures than the plains. Japanese chestnuts with a sweet and flaky taste are harvested every year through a special cultivation method that takes advantage of Aso's climate.
