Warabimochi is a jelly-like confection made from the extracted starch of a fern called “warabi” (bracken) and covered with “kinako” (roasted soybean flour). Kuro Warabimochi is made with black molasses, which is what gives it its luxurious color and extra sweetness. Though the name bears similarity, warabimochi is entirely different from true mochi, which is made from glutinous rice. We recommend chilling this delicious snack before sprinkling kinako on and spooning small refreshing bites into your mouth.
