A sakura cheese delicately flavored with cherry blossoms. Yes, I shown you one before :
It was really excellent, but too expensive to buy it often. So I thought of a way to make a slightly simpler sakura cheese, for less than 1/4th of the cost.
The base is a cheap cheese, quite neutral in taste.
The flavor comes from sakura blossoms and leaves preserved in salt. I have used them without rinsing.
I’ve put a leaf under, and a few blossoms on top. Reclosed the package and let it mature 2 weeks in the fridge.
Then, I tried it…. and that’s great ! The cheese has taken the sakura flavor. So try it someday.
Double sakura waffles. Both the waffle and its filling have a delicate cherry blossom flavor. It’s the perfect snack for the season. It’s very quickly made.
DIY sakura leaf powder : I’ve left rinsed pickled sakura leaves dry. Then I crushed them with my finger.
I mixed them with flour, baking powder, a little kurozato black sugar, soy milk. Cooked waffles.
Took out my sakura-an cream to garnish.
Cut into triangle sands.
Prepared my basket, with a thermos of sencha green tea. And I went to eat them at the nearby park… The wind froze me, I was glad to have tea to thaw me.
