Homemade Tsubu-an Chunky Sweet Bean Paste

Homemade Tsubu-an Chunky Sweet Bean Paste

I created homemade red bean paste for my daughter who loves it so much.
When the red beans become soft, add sugar for a finished touch!

Ingredients

Red beans
500 g
Sugar
about 400 g (adjust the sweetness to your liking)
Salt
1/2 teaspoon

Steps

1. Wash the red beans, and boil in water 5 times the amount of the red beans. When cooked, drain.
2. Boil them again with plenty of water. After bringing to a boil, turn down the heat, and simmer until they become soft.
3. When the amount of water is reduced just to cover the beans, mash with a masher. (A blender makes it easier.)
4. Add sugar and salt to Step 3, and simmer it for a little while, and it's done.
