Ingredients: (Anko sweet red bean paste)
1 cup red beans
1 1/2 cup sugar
Directions: (Anko sweet red bean paste)
- Put red beans in a pot with 2-3 cups of water. Let boil for 5 minutes and discard water.
- In a clean pot, place red beans and 2-3 cups of water, cover, and let it simmer at low heat for 1 1/2 to 2 hours (add more water as needed). The beans should now be very soft, easily crushed between fingers.
- Discard water again, put soft beans back in the pot with sugar at medium high heat and constantly stir and mix about 10 minutes until forming a paste that looks shiny but still loose. Immediately transfer the paste to a container.
