Description

Product Description

    • Gluten Free
    • 100% wholegrain
    • Low fat
    • Ready to eat in 8 min
    • Mochi is made from a short grain japonica glutinous brown rice which has been steamed, pounded into a paste and shaped into blocks and dried
    • The best mochi has a perfect balance between viscosity and elasticity but this requires exceptional skills as it is especially difficult to perfect when using brown rice

Ingredients

  • Sweet brown rice* (100%). *organically grown

Directions

  • Clearspring mochi can be pan-fried, grilled, deep-fried, boiled or even oven-baked. To oven-bake, cut mochi into 1-1.5” squares and bake in a pre-heated oven for 8-10 minutes. They will puff up and when done are brown and crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Serve with dips or fillings of your choice such as tamari and maple syrup for a delicious sweet snack. Also great wrapped in toasted nori with a tamari & ginger dip or cut into bite sized pieces and add to soups or stews just before serving as crispy croutons. A match box sized piece of mochi has the same calorific value as a small bowl of rice. For this reason it is popular with Japanese farmers who often eat mochi on cold winter days to increase their stamina while samurai took mochi onto the battlefield because it was easy to carry, easy to prepare and a great source of energy.

More

  • In Japan mochi is traditionally made from whole rice in a labour intensive ceremony called mochitsuki. While now enjoyed all year-round, mochi is a traditional food specially prepared and eaten during New Years celebrations in Japan. After the polished glutinous rice is soaked overnight and steamed it is pounded with wooden mallets (kine) in a traditional mortar (usu). Two people will alternate the work, one pounding and the other turning and wetting the mochi. They must keep a steady rhythm to prevent injuring each other with the heavy kine. The sticky mass is then formed into cubes and dried.
