Black Bean Kinako Arare
Fluffy, crunchy, light arare meets richly flavored Kinako (soybean flour). New Tanba black beans from Kyoto are roasted and ground to make premium black soybean flour. This is then mixed with Wasanbon (fine-grained Japanese sugar) from Sanuki and the secret ingredient, “Nuchimasu” (Okinawan salt), to create a rich, deep taste.
Made with specially cultivated sticky rice (hiyoku-mochi) from Saga prefecture, wasanbon sugar from Sanuki, and sea salt from Okunoto; harvested using Agehama-style beach-drying methods. The carefully selected ingredients give a delectable and light sweetness, from which you will never tire. The wafer-like texture melts gently in your mouth and pairs particularly well with ice cream.
Sakura-ebi Shrimp from Suruga Bay is mixed with our rice dough and baked to create a distinctive savory taste. These crackers are finished with a sprinkle of sea salt harvested around Awaji Island; extracted by simmering to a rich brine in iron kettles for 40 hours, and then left to crystallize in cedar barrels. We hope you enjoy the combination of arare and the blessings of the sea.
