Halloween

Halloween has recently become known in Japan, but it's still an unfamiliar event to many of us.  Recently, we can buy Japanese-style confections modeled after Jack-o'-lantern.

There are some Japanese confections containing pumpin.


Kabocha-no-Ukishima(かぼちゃの浮島)

The colors of this confection are produced by pumpkin pulp and shell.


Yamaji(山路:mountain path)


This confection contains white bean paste, adzuki bean paste and green peas.





These confecitions are variations of ukishima(浮島) which is a steamed moist sponge cake that contains bean paste, sugar, eggs and flour.
