mitsumame - www.healthnote25.com

Mitsumame ( , ?) Is a Japanese dessert in the form of a cube-shaped dish served in a bowl with a set of red peas, and canned fruit (mandarin or peach). There are also mitsumame added balls of glutinous flour (shiratama dango) or gyūhi. 

Sweetener of kuromitsu (black syrup of brown sugar cane) is poured into gelatin before being eaten. This dish is eaten with a spoon or fork.

Mitsumame is one of the traditional summer foods in Japan. Mitsumame even belongs to the kigo treasury (word of season) for summer in haikai poetry. Nevertheless, mitsumame can now be enjoyed all season.
