I’m equipped for the cherry blossom season that is looming… It’s really early this year. I’ve seen only pink ones so far, but within a few days, the country will be white.

Japanese sakura sweets are flavored with pickles made the year before. I should make mines maybe, but well I’ve bought some. さくらの花(塩漬け), cherry blossom, pickled in salt.

The leaves are also pickled but less salty.

They need a rinsing.

Then you add petals to some food, let a pair of hours and they are magically flavored. You’ll see that in future posts.

干菓子higashi (dry sweets) to go with matcha. I didn’t make those either.

  2. Cool !! J’ai hate de voir ce que tu vas préparer !!!!
    L’année dernière j’avais fait pas mal de chose (glace, roulé, sakura-mochi)
    L’odeur de sakura, le parfum, c’est vraiment entêtant, mais j’adore. ^v^

    Amuses-toi bien ! Au fait, tu as déjà goûté la sakura-jam ? J’aimerai bien savoir si ça vaut le coup d’en acheter é.è !

  3. Jam comme la confiture aux petales de rose ? Il y en a de la bonne, ca depend des marques. Par contre, si c’est la pate rose “sakura an”, il vaut mieux la faire car il s’agit simplement d’une pate de haricots blancs (fayot cuits + sirop de sucre, piler et tamiser), a laquelle ils ajoutent dans le meilleur des cas ces fleurs salees et un colorant. J’ai des haricots qui trempent justement…
