A traditional Japanese dessert worth bringing into the modern world! This ogi yokan, made in West Kyushu using the finest ingredients, is a little different from other varieties of yokan in that it has a thin film of sugar around the outside that becomes crusty over time, giving the yokan some added crunch. Enjoy this yokan as a dessert or snack with a hot cup of green tea.

ITEM ID: #6631

Background

Yokan is one of the most well known traditional Japanese desserts to have survived to the present day. It is a cake with a jelly-like consistency (although yokan is slightly chewier and heavier), made from mashed sweet azuki red beans and kanten (a gelatin-like substance made from seaweed). Other flavours, such as chestnut, sweet potato, and matcha, are also often added to yokan. Take a look at Japan Centre’s great range of traditional desserts.

How To Use

Yokan is brilliant for:
• Drinking with sencha green tea for a traditional and refreshing snack.
• Cutting into smaller blocks and sharing with friends on cocktail sticks.
• Buying as a traditional Japanese gift.
