Anmitsu is my favorite Japanese sweet which contains Kanten (Japanese jerry made from seaweed), Anko (Japanese jam made from red beans), and Kuromitsu (Japanese black syrup). The topping items are Gyuhi (Japanese sticky rice cake), Kuromame (Japanese black beans), Kinton (Japanese marrons glaces), and Anzu (dried aplicot). It's very tasty and healthy. But in Japan, sweets are regarded as foods for women and I hesitate to order this kind of sweets in a cafe or in a restaurant. This picture is home made Anmitsu which my mother made. It's very tasty.
