Yellow like a quince : karin kinton tea sweets


These simple Japanese tea sweets bring sunlight in Winter, they are also a cure for sore throats. Well, that’s supposed to be a property of this fruit :

Karin are Japanese quinces/marmelos . I boiled it, then mashed the flesh.

Then I’ve added the same amount of boiled satsuma imo (sweet potato), turmeric for the color, kurozato black sugar.

And shaped them. That’s not necessary. Kinton can be some kind of mash. Like this :

kuri satsuma imo kinton

Or shaped like this :

 sweet chestnut kuri kinton

Other wagashi tea sweets.
