Azuki Yokan

Do you like red bean? I love it. We Japanese use it a lots for dessert. This is my creation. I made azuki yokan. Sweet red bean plus agar( seaweed gelatin) , sugar, salt and blackberry preserve.
Sauce is easy. I use green tea ice cream. Just leave it and add green tea powder. This is a great combination of sweetens and bitterness.
But it is hard for Americans. You guys mind of bean is side dish and vegetables. If you go to Mexican restaurants, you might see red bean but it is not sweet, of course. It shouldn't be sweet. I cannot eat that because of my imagination. Anyway, this is a nice summer dish, I believe.
