ADZUKI BEAN

Description

This small, dried ruby-coloured legume has a sweet flavour and is prized by Asians for centuries to bring good fortune. It is also traditionally used in weddings and New Year celebrations.

Adzuki beans can be purchased whole or powdered at Asian markets. They are particularly popular in Japanese cooking where they're used in confections such as the popular YOKAN, made with adzuki-bean paste and AGAR.

These Adzuki beans have a strong, nutty, sweet flavour, and are used in the macrobiotic diet. They probably originate from China, and are imported from China and Thailand where they are harvested in November and December. In the Orient, adzuki beans are usually cooked to a red soft consistency and served with ingredients such as coconut milk. They are also cooked with rice, their bright colour tinting the rice an attractive pink, as in the Japanese Red-cooked Festival Rice. In the East, it is also common to find adzuki beans sweetened with sugar and made into cakes and sweetmeats.

Together with winter squash, it is said to be traditionally used to minimize sweet cravings.

How to use

First soak beans overnight to reduce cooking time. Rinse and drain thoroughly. For 1 cup beans, add 3-4 cups water. Cover and simmer under medium heat for 45 min to an hour until soft; 2 hours if the beans are not soaked. You may add honey or brown rice malt to consume.

5 day sprouts add a sweet, succulent flavour to salad.

In East Asian cuisine the azuki bean is commonly eaten sweetened. In particular, it is often boiled with sugar, resulting in red bean paste.

Yokan is a thick jellied dessert made of Azuki bean paste, agar, and sugar.

Pastry can be decorated with sweetened Azuki beans

Red bean paste is used in many Chinese foods, such as tangyuan, zongzi, mooncakes, baozi, and red bean ice. It is also used as a filling for Japanese sweets such as anmitsu, taiyaki and daifuku. A more liquid version, using azuki beans boiled with sugar and a pinch of salt, produces a sweet dish called red bean soup. Azuki beans are also commonly eaten sprouted, or boiled in a hot, tea-like drink. Some Asian cultures enjoy red bean paste as a filling or topping for various kinds of waffles, pastries, baked buns or biscuits.

In Japan, rice with azuki beans is traditionally cooked for auspicious occasions. Azuki beans are also used to produce amanatto, and as a popular flavour of ice cream.

Azuki beans, along with butter and sugar, form the basis of the popular Somali supper dish cambuulo.

In Gujarat, India, they are known as Chori.

Non-GMO Policy
Genetic Modification of crops is a process of adding genes from other species eg bacteria into plants so that they can produce more yield and be resistant to attack from pests. Insects that take GMO crops die due to the toxins that the GMO plants secrete. The safety to humans is still not conclusive and we are concerned.

Hence, Nature's Glory abides by a non GMO policy when we select our products. Hence, we shy away from products made in the USA including fresh produce unless they are tested for non GMO. (These tests may still be insufficient due to the uncontrolled spread of GMO pollen). The introduction of GMOs in Europe had caused half the bee population to go extinct and hence it was banned in Europe. GMOs are also banned in Japan, NZ and Australia. There have also been an increase in the amount of pesticide and chemicals used on crops after the introduction GMOs. The large increase in chemicals on crops has now become a global threat to our environment
