I heard rumors about the birth of a new product that attracts attention from such Japanese sweets, so I will introduce it immediately! It is "Amo" of the prestigious Japanese sweets "Kano Takumi-an" of Mr. Otsu, Shiga Prefecture! Hmmm, it's a pretty name, but what kind of Japanese sweets are they ...?
"Amo" is the finest sweets made by wrapping soft mochi in azuki beans that have been carefully cooked and have an elegant sweetness. By the way, it's a trivia, but it's said that sweets are the shape of Japanese sweets, and stick-shaped Japanese sweets are called like this! This "Amo" is a famous confectionery that represents Kano Takumi-an, which was born in 1971. Notably, a new "salt-flavored" version was released on October 8th! It's an exquisite harmony of sweetness and saltiness, a trendy style.
Even if it becomes a salty version, the commitment to "Amo" remains the same. One pot, one pot, azuki beans with a low sweetness that the craftsmen cook with great care so as not to crush the grains, and rice cakes that have a fine and smooth look like the skin of a baby made by the craftsmen, which is truly a traditional confectionery!
In addition, it is full of attention to the point of saltiness! By adding Shiratamako to the mochi, you can make a chewy mochi that matches the salt. The salt is grilled salt from Ako, which is grilled at 400 ° C (752 ° F). By using this grilled salt, you can enjoy a mellow taste without emphasizing saltiness! Since its release, it seems that it has been so successful that a total of 1,000 limited editions are sold out per day!
In recent years, salt sweets have become quite popular, but isn't this salty "Amo" a big favorite?
