Amazake Custard

Amazake is a Japanese fermented rice drink. You can find amazake and kuzu at many health food stores.

I tried it today for the first time. I bought almond flavor from Grainassance.

It is pretty thick, like a shake to start with, but you can also make a custard out of it for a cake or tart.

1 cup almond amazake
1TBSP kuzu root/starch mixed in 2 TBSP cold water

Heat the amazake. Put in the cold water/dissolved kuzu starch and stir, let simmer on low for 3 minutes stirring constantly. Pour into a ramakin and chill in fridge for 1 hour. Enjoy!

  1. I am going to try to make a nice rice pudding using the amazake custard also by adding a little cinnamon and brown rice. I love rice pudding so I am psyched!
