Description

Azuki beans grown by Morita Beans in the vast and beautiful land of Tokachi district, Hokkaido prefecture. The Azuki bean is a type of reddish-brown colored bean that is mostly grown in East Asia. While widely consumed in East Asia; more recently, these beans are becoming more available in bio stores in the US and Europe. In Japan, it is very common to use these beans to make bean paste for traditional Japanese sweets. If you do not have a sweet tooth, these beans are also nice in salads, or mixed in with rice. In fact, in Japan, we use azuki beans to make red bean rice (osekihan;お赤飯)
