Kingyoku Kan Wagashi : Japanese Confection

 Kingyoku Kan Wagashi : Japanese Confection recipe how to make


I came across Wagashi when i was on pinterest and boy i was really inspired to make them myself! It was a little difficult to look for the perfect recipe since there are many ingredients that i am not able to get anywhere in my place.

Kingyoku Kan is a type of Wagashi (Japanese Confection) that is mostly eaten during summer and is some sort like an agar jelly that's sweet, cooling and transparent.

I came up with a simple recipe that might not taste like any Wagashi but it definitely looks like one. And it's really pretty for photography! Simple and easy to make, let's have a look!

I decided to make a one that is similar to a pond and Sakura petals!

I made the fish and the lotus leaf using tangyuan powder and natural food coloring. I do have to say the taste is really sweet but it'll go perfect with any japanese tea!

Since i have leftover agar powder, i decided to make something a little more fragrant and sadly i didn't have any sakura tea so i went with rose tea! Please stick to sakura tea if you want to make these because boy.. do they taste weird lol

I wouldn't call these wagashi but i just decided to make these for fun! They are just pretty for photography but not to taste lol

I had lots of fun making these and photographing but i would not want to make these as a dessert to be served since i'm not person who can enjoy sweet food ;;

However i'm really curious and would love to have the chance to know how a REAL wagashi tastes like.

Have you tried any wagashi? How do they taste like?
