False Autumn

Incredibly enough, it’s the end of September, already! The weather has cooled enough to be manageable but its still quite hot. There have been maybe 2-3 light sweater days which always makes you try to change habits too soon. The fall snacks are definitely here and I as well am here to support them. This kurikinton・栗きんとん from Kichi Zoh was a perfect autumn treat, with sweet chestnut paste placed around smooth red bean paste. This is a really popular one so I’m sure it won’t be my last.
