MOOD FOR FOOD: ANKO

3 sweets that contain ANKO, and you must try them.

What exactly is ANKO? Adzuki beans have been boiled, mixed with sugar, mashed, and thickened into a sweet pulp that comes in red, green, and many shades in between.

Anecdote 1: In the Kamakura period (1185-1333), salt was used to make Anko, and in the Edo period (1603-1868) local sugar production increased and sweet Anko became the standard.

Anecdote 2: Anko is used to make most Japanese traditional sweets.




The 3 best ANKO sweets we love, and you must try

1. Yatsuhashi - traditional Kyoto sweet - a rice dough filled with ANKO and cinnamon.

2. Taiyaki - Japanese pancake fill in with Anko (or sweet potato)

3. Daifuku - Rice dough fill with ANKO and strawberry
