Yokan and Jelly

INSIDE YOUR SAKURACO BOX

Yokan & Jelly

Yokan and Japanese jelly are timeless wagashi, traditional Japanese sweets, with a long history. Thanks to the earthy sweetness of adzuki red beans, yokan has been a popular delicacy for centuries. Over time, people began experimenting with various flavors, and even today yokan and jelly retain their popularity.

TRIVIA

When is mizu yokan typically enjoyed?

Coming to Sakuraco

Yokan

Yokan is a traditional Japanese dessert made from adzuki, agar-agar, and sugar to form a firm, jelly-like block. Originally, it was first eaten in temples by monks and zen priests, but gradually gained popularity among aristocrats and warriors. Today, yokan is infused with many flavors like matcha and chestnut, while seasonal yokan can be found throughout Japan. Sliced into squares or rectangles, it's enjoyed as a refined confection with a delicate balance of sweet and subtle flavors.

Yokan

Jelly

Traditional Japanese jelly, known as kingyoku, is particularly cherished in Japan's warmer months. Made by boiling agar and sugar, confectioners skillfully mold these delicate desserts with scenes of goldfish, maple leaves, cherry blossoms, or other nature-inspired elements. Notably, its refreshing nature and lack of refrigeration requirement add to its appeal.

Japanese Pudding

Japanese pudding, known as purin, is a creamy custard-inspired dessert made with eggs, sugar, and milk, achieving a silky smooth texture through baking or steaming. Unique variations, including hojicha, matcha, and strawberry flavors, provide delightful twists to this classic Japanese treat. Best served chilled, this sweet treat pairs well with green tea.
