These delectable sweets are created by simply mashing fresh chestnuts, boiling them with sugar, and then shaping them dry with a tea cloth so that the final product resembles that of a chestnut.
The use of such few ingredients allows one to enjoy the natural chestnut flavor with a refined sweetness that pairs well with tea or coffee.
Kurikinton were thought of to be created in southeast Gifu, an area known for producing high-quality chestnuts, where many historical confectionaries continue to sell their sweets to this very day.
This refined chestnut treat is something you don’t want to miss!
