What you will need

200g azuki beans

Water as needed

200g sugar

How to cook

1

Soak beans

Wash and sort your beans. Add enough water to cover by at least 2 inches. Set aside to soak for at least 8 hours.

2

Rinse

Strain the beans and rinse them well.

3

Boil

Transfer the beans back to a pot and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil.

4

Strain

Once the water comes to a boil, strain the beans once more.

5

Simmer for 1 hour

Return the beans to the pot. Add water to cover, and bring to a simmer. Simmer the beans for 1 hour, adding water every so often to keep the beans completely submerged.

6

Stir in the sugar

When the beans are cooked through and tender, stir in the sugar.

7

Simmer until thickened

Continue to simmer until the liquid begins to thicken, stirring often. Stop when you can draw a line through the beans with your spoon, and the line remains visible for a couple of seconds. Stir in a pinch of salt and chill.
