What’s Konnyaku (Amakara) like?

This is the food.
We call it “Konnyaku no Amakara” or “Amakara Konnyaku”.

“Amakara” means “sweet and salty”.
For this recipe, we use Mirin and soy sauce.

Mirin is sweet, soy sauce is salty.
That’s why the name of this food has the word “Amakara”.

This is so tasty and perfect food for Japanese sake.
