Kagawa Bean Jam Rice Cake
On New Year's Day in Kagawa Prefecture, Shikoku, red bean paste mochi is added to ozoni.
It was created in response to people's desire to eat something sweet at least on New Year's Day.
Miso soup with white miso paste and carrots, and rice cakes filled with red bean paste.
The bean paste cake is also made hard, probably to prevent it from falling apart.
I couldn't muster up the courage, so I baked some red bean paste cakes!
They were like sweet crackers. They were delicious!
