Add sticky-sweet flavour to Japanese desserts and more.

Sweet and well-rounded in taste, this Kuromitsu black sugar syrup provides Japan's treats with an irresistibly rich and golden glaze to indulge in. Popularly poured over kuzumochi, anmitsu, dango and even pancakes, this treacle-like syrup is thin enough to be drizzled over desserts, coating them in the smooth, exquisitely pure sweetness of Okinawan black sugar. Provided in an easy-squeeze bottle that allows it to be mixed and poured to your preferred amount, try stirring this syrup into cakes or yoghurts to enrich their flavours or pair it with kinako soybean powder to create a classic dessert topping.

ITEM ID: #16830

Background

Similar to molasses or maple syrup, but just as popular when it comes to classic Japanese sweet making, Kuromitsu black sugar syrup is a key ingredient in some of Japan's best known wagashi desserts. Commonly combined with kinako soybean powder and poured over mochi, dango and even ice cream, the mellow, full-flavoured sweetness of this syrup enhances the softer, more subtle tastes & textures of Japanese confectionery, and works great as a light, yet potently sweet flavouring for Western pastries and bakes.

Very pleased to be able to get this at last. Not just for anmitsu, it's lovely on porridge and yoghurt as well.
