I Love Mochi!

MOCHI is a Japanese rice cake made out of glutinous rice pounded into a paste and molded into a shape.  During the mochitsuki event in Japan, otherwise known as the mochi pounding ceremony, mochi is made.  In Japan, it is a traditional food mainly eaten during the Japanese New Year, although it is served throughout the year.  Mochi can be made savory and sweet.  The sweet version is known as Daifuku, which are round glutinous rice balls filled with sweet ingredients such as red bean or white bean paste.

I can’t keep mochi in the house.
