confections with Japanese citrus fruits
Kanten jelly including mikan juice was poured into hollowed out mikan (温州蜜柑:Satsuma mandarin).
mikan (Satsuma mandarin) is becoming out of season. In Japanese citrus fruits, Iyokan (伊予柑) is in season. Dekopon (デコポン) is also in season and it became popular rapidly.
Hassaku(八朔) is bigger than mikan and come into season soon.
Kanten jelly including hassaku juice was poured into hollowed out hassaku (温州蜜柑:Satsuma mandarin). Kanten(寒天:Japan agar) like jelly solidify at room temperature and is tougher than jelly, so we can cut hassaku-kan with a knife. Hassaku skin is thicker than mikan
