Toraya has been one of Japan's most famous makers of traditional sweets (wagashi) for almost four centuries. That alone would be enough to recommend the Toraya An Paste Set, but it gets better! What the confectioner has done with this amazing set is to bring you anko, the red bean paste that is the core of every traditional Japanese sweet, in its purest form, so you can use it with anything you like - as it is or as an ingredient for your own sweets!
The Toraya An Paste Set contains three 290-gram (10-ounce) jars, each with a different flavor of anko: you get koshi an, pureed adzuki bean paste; ogura an, a whole adzuki bean paste; and shirogoma to kinako, white sesame and roasted soybean flour. These are the classic flavors you can find in hundreds of sweets all over Japan. Make everything, from a plain slice of toast to the most complicated baked goods, taste a little (or a lot!) Japanese with this amazing set from one of the country's most respected sweet-makers!
