富山干柿

旧福光町及び旧城端町(現在の富山県南砺市内の一部)で約400年前から栽培している産地固有種の柿である「三社」を原料とした干柿です。飴色で砲弾型のずしりとする大きさといった外観に加え、強い甘みと歯ごたえをもった味と食感が特徴です。

Hoshigaki, or Japanese dried persimmons as we know them in English, are a popular seasonal Japanese snack food made primarily during the autumn months when you can spot persimmon trees laden with their brightly colored orange fruits throughout the country and in supermarkets.  In Japan, hoshigaki are said to bring good luck and are often eaten on New Year’s Day in a custom known as Hagatame in Japanese.

Hoshigaki can be eaten on its own as a snack or used in other dishes. When eaten by itself, it is often served with green tea, with the hoshigaki providing a sweet-tasting contrast to the bitter matcha. It can also be used in salads or added into desserts such as cakes and ice cream and is a popular ingredient in wagashi – traditional Japanese sweets.
