Flavor of Spring! Sakura Mochi

Early April is the season of cherry blossom called Sakura !  We can find Sakura mochi at Japanese confectionary shop. But it’s not usual mochi and used Domyoji-ko (a kind of glutinous rice but soaked in the wa
ter then dried) . The leaf of Sakura is preserved in the salt and keeps the aroma aroma and the texture becomes soft. So we can enjoy it together with mochi. Usually inside is red bean paste. Flavor of spring in Japan!
