A delicious fresh dessert for all the lovers of sour sweetness.
Why zu zu zu ?
Zu or su, is sourness. Many acidic ingredients have this sound in Japanese. Today :
Anzu : Apricot.
Yuzu : yuzu citrus.
Kuzu : kudzu is a root resembling arrow-root and similarly used as a jelly starch.
About 1 volume of dry apricot for two of oat meal in the blender, then just a little water. Put in the mold, dried in the oven.
Yuzu. I’ve really discovered something here : yuzu and apricot are one of those rare matches made in even. Paired they become something else, a richer fruit flavor.
Kudzu as it is sold. It is 本葛 Honkuzu, pure kuzu. There exist others (explanation here).

I mixed the kuzu powder with the juice and zest of a yuzu, a little yellow cane sugar, enough water (as suggested on the package of kuzu) and cooked while stirring, till it became transparent.
Filled the crust. Let cool a few hours. Garnished with whipped coconut cream, toasted sesame seeds and yellow cane sugar.
