The nature is never totally asleep in Japan. Even if it’s the middle of Winter and most trees are naked, there is some greenery and some lowers.
Camellia, called tsubaki in Japanese is the flower of the tea tree (AKA camellia sinensis). It’s the middle of tea blossom season right now. I didn’t have to go far, these bushes are everywhere in town.
Well, a simple dough (flour, oil, water, a pinch of sugar and a pinch of paprika for the color), filled with apples dices, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and a little yuzu lemon juice. I painted them with oil.
Baked and sugared.
To bite when they are still warm…
