Summer Grape Sweets

Summer is here and brings all the amazing Kyushu fruits and veggies. This part of Japan is famous for its produce so I’m excited to try everything. Throughout Japan a wide variety of (usually expensize) grapes are a prized treat. And today, an adorable little treat from Minamoto Kichoan・源吉兆庵, where I’ve gotten lucky a few times. Its a daifuku with a very thin layer of mochi, with white bean paste and at the centre is a green grape that has been jellied on the inside our sugar crystalized on the outside. Kichoan really focuses on fruit and they are always inventive and delicious.
