DESSERTS: Amasake (Amazake) Pudding

Amasake (Amazake) is a naturally sweet rice beverage sold in many natural
foods stores. Be sure to check the label so that you get the kind with no added sugar.

4 cups amasake

6 tablespoons kuzu

Water for diluting kuzu

A few toasted sesame seeds or roasted chopped almonds for garnish

1.  Place amasake in a pot. Stir and slowly bring to a boil.

2.  Place the kuzu in a small bowl and cover with water.  Stir with your fingers until you can feel the kuzu lumps are dissolved.

3. Pour a trickle of diluted kuzu into hot amasake, stirring continuously with a whisk to avoid lumps.

4. Continue stirring until the kuzu is cooked.  The starch turns from a milky white to a more clear consistency.

5.  Spoon into a dessert cup and garnish.
