When making caramel sauce with brown cane sugar, I created kuro-mitsu! You can make tasty anmitsu abroad (sweetened adzuki bean and fruits with kuromitsu).
I was looking at a book on caramel sweets and thought, "so, this is how you make kuromitsu...!"Now you can enjoy Japanese desserts even when you're abroad.
It is better to stir boiled water, not cool water, as it won't spatter. Be careful not to burn yourself.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
