What to do when the humidity is so thick outside? Take out a "cool" treat.
This is made by Seikanin, a Japanese confectioner in Kyoto.
It is called Asazumi tomato because it is supposed to resemble a freshly harvested tomato that is ripened in the sun. The second ingredient on the label is tomato and boy! was there a nice tomato flavor--a little tart but still tomato-y. The outside is made from kuzu (arrowroot/kudzu) mixed with peach and mango juice. The sweetness from both of these flavors fades in the background to the tomato flavor when eaten together.
