During winter holiday, I made some sweets for my family, it’s alyays nice to share the home made food/sweets with peaple you love.

Kusa mochi is green color mochi, because of Yomogi leaves(mugword) and there’re Anko inside.


When I was kid, I went out with my mom to pick up Yomogi leaves to make this sweets, but I can’t do that now in Tokyo since there’re no Yomogi around you. It’s very sad.
So I bought dried Yomogi at market this time.

1. Combine Joshin-ko and sugar in a bowl. Add the warm water little by little until the dough became earlobe texture then mix well.
