Mizuame : The Japanese Sweetener

In Japanese ” mizu ” means ” water ” and ” ame ” means ” candy “,
Mizuame is a thick, clear and sticky sweetener made by converting
starch to sugars, it is used a bit like honey and is quite similar to
corn syrup.
The starch source can be rice mixed with malt or sweet potatoes,
the rice & malt method ( mugi mizuame ) is considered more tasty.
