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!
