Today I will finish my bean recipes series with a couple of delicious bean desserts. I hope you’ll like them.
Black Bean Dessert
Discard the soaking water and boil the beans until become soft.
Mash the beans and place in a medium sized pan. Add the milk, sugar, cinnamon and cloves.
Take to medium heat stirring constantly until thickened and remove from heat.
Take out cinnamon sticks and cloves. Stir in 1 tablespoon sesame seeds.
Transfer to a bowl and top with remaining sesame seeds.
Adzuki Bean Dessert
Wash Kanten under running water and squeeze excess water out of it.
Chop up Kanten into small pieces and soak in saucepan with 4 3/4 cups of water for 15 minutes.
Then cook Kanten stirring constantly until dissolved. Add sugar and salt. Add the Azuki beans and continue to stir for at least 5 minutes until the beans are warmed.
Remove the saucepan from heat and pour the mixture in a flat pan.
Cool and refrigerate until hardened and cut into bite-size pieces.
