Strawberry Amazake Kanten 🍓

            Strawberry Amazake Kanten 🍓

Kanten is a Japanese gelatine free jelly using sea vegetable agar flakes. Here we used Amazake as the main liquid and added strawberries for the colour and its sweet flavour. Make it fancy by cutting into a flower shape or let it set in a fancy glass to serve. 



  1. Mix the amazake with water. ( if you’d like a smooth finish, sieve the amazake before heating with the agar flakes.)
  2. Add agar flakes and amazake into a saucepan and bring to a gentile boil and simmer until the flakes have dissolved mix occasionally.
  3. Wash and slice the strawberries and place in a heatproof container, pour the amazake and leave in the container to cool before placing in the fridge to harden further.
  4. Slice and enjoy as a dessert on its own or with a scoop of ice cream

Dear Clearspring,

I hope all is well. Is there a retailer in London where you are still selling the Kombu sawead? I checked at Revital in Victoria, verious big Waitrose stores, WholeFoods in piccadilly (where I bought it in the past) and at the Japanese Centre there nearby, and it’s no longer offered or on stock. If you still distribute it in a retailer and tell me where I’ll buy it there. Otherwise I’ll order it online. Regards, Maria
