Trying and Making the Easy and Delicious “Butterbur Tea Sweet”

The ingredients are only Japanese butterbur and sugar. Since they are simple, healthy, and even make tea sweets, I tried to make them.

How to make them is easy.
1. Not cutting them, simply leaving them long, parboil them.
2. Peel the skin, and cut them to about 5 cm in length.
3. Cover them in the amount of sugar that you like. Without water, boil them down for about 45 minutes.
4. When the syrup is gone, there will be a shaking and drying noise.

This is a recipe I heard from a wife somewhere. How simple it is!
This experienced wife, as for the photograph is how I always do so. I’m rather sorry.

This has the feeling of a snack with a silky feeling, different from nimono.

This “Butterbur Tea Sweet” certainly has a name, but I don’t know it. Since I don’t know it, and am using “Butterbur Tea Sweet”, I think that it is good enough.
Perhaps, this could be a dish that was respected from ancient times.
