Until the opening of Japan to the West in the late 19th century, Japanese sweets meant invariably one thing: anko, or red bean paste, in its numerous variations. And even though today you can get all kinds of fillings like whipped cream, custard, or chocolate, if you're looking for the real traditional Japanese taste for your dessert, anko is the way to go. And the most practical way to add some to your breakfast or sweets is this Tsubu-an Red Bean Paste Topping.
Made of all-natural azuki red beans, the Tsubu-an Red Bean Paste Topping by Imuraya will make even a plain slice of toast a delicacy worthy of any traditional Kyoto inn. No preparation, no instructions: just azuki beans from the island of Hokkaido, boiled with sugar, ready to top or fill your pies, ice creams, cakes, or anything else you might think of. Three tubes are included in this pack, making for dozens of deliciously Japanese combinations!
