Grape Sweets (Budou Ame) 2014/5/16 01:51

I was just in Morioka and found a fantastic traditional sweets shop and brought home some really great candies. Now I wish I knew what they were made from.

My favorite was this firm gummy/jelly candy. The wrapper called it ぶどう飴.

I understand that it is grape flavor but what is the gummy/jelly candy? What is this called?

Here is an image I was able to find online of what it is I am talking about.


Any information about this kind of candy, how it's made would be amazing.

Thank you for your time and help,

sugar, starch syrup, and agar are dissolved (in water ?) and are concentrated by heat. Add fruit juice of 山ブドウ(wild grape fruit). Cool down to solidify. cut into a suitable size, and dry slowly.
