Cooking is easy and delicious with amazake|Ren MURO, a store specializing in rice koji and amazake [official mail order]

Hello, this is Suzuki from Ren MURO Kagurazaka.
On the calendar, it is the season that corresponds to one of the twenty-four solar terms, “Kanro”.

It is said to be the time when the dew on the flowers and plants feels cold, and it is cool and chilly not only in the morning and evening, but also during the day.

Also, at this time of year, the harvest of five grains, including the rice used for sweet sake, is in full swing, and this year's new rice begins to appear.

Amazake was often chilled during the hot season, but recently it has become more common to drink it warmed up or at room temperature.
It is also the season when you can enjoy the arrangement of warm amazake, such as adding spices such as ginger and cinnamon, or mixing it with herbal tea.

Kagurazaka Amazake Hot Tea Arrangement

In the upcoming season, amazake will be very useful in stewed dishes such as meat and potatoes and stews.
Since I started my life with amazake, amazake has become a well-established seasoning in our home.

For example, just by marinating the meat used in curry with amazake, it will not become hard even when simmered, and will be soft.
Breast meat, which tends to be dry, can be marinated in amazake to make it plump and juicy.

Since amazake is rich in amino acids, it is not only sweet but also has a rich umami flavor.
Therefore, it has a rich taste with a gentle sweetness and umami.

In addition, the action of proteolytic enzymes makes ingredients such as meat and fish moist and tender.
It will improve the taste of your cooking up to one rank and two ranks.

Also, it is nice to add nutrients such as dietary fiber, oligosaccharides, and B vitamins derived from amazake to the dishes.
In addition, the koji contained in amazake makes it easy to digest ingredients such as meat and fish, so it reduces the burden of digestion.

Amazake used as a seasoning leads to daily health maintenance.

Amazake Cooking Chicken Marinated

~Benefits of using amazake in cooking~
☑Boiled fish, teriyaki, sukiyaki, miso soup, soup, dressing, etc.

☑Deep-fried chicken, Saikyo-yaki, mackerel simmered in miso, etc.

☑Plump cakes, steamed bread, fried eggs, etc.

☑Nikujaga, curry, beef stew, gyudon, etc.

Among them, the recommended amazake menu is grilled pork with ginger.
It's easy to cook, just mix powdered and grilled pork with grated ginger, equal amounts of amazake and soy sauce, and you'll have an authentic taste.

Basically, just replace the "sugar" in the recipe with "sweet sake".
For concentrated amazake, add twice the amount of sugar, and for straight type, add 3 to 4 times the amount.

Chicken Saute Amazake Dishes

We have various kinds of amazake, but it is also interesting that the finish of the dish changes depending on the characteristics of the amazake.

Depending on whether the rice is grainy, how sweet it is, whether it is white rice amazake or brown rice amazake, the taste of the dish will be different.

Just like choosing seasonings such as miso, it may be fun to think about which amazake to use next time.

Please try to find your favorite amazake to accompany your meal from our many amazake.
