First Attempt

The other day I learned how to make azuki bean paste from a friend. I brought some home and, since the youngerchild loves bean buns, tried to make my own.

Let's just say, they looked nothing like the photos on the webpage. They were edible. That's the nicest thing I can say about them. I didn't take photos.

So, for future attempts:
  1. Don't make the dough circles too thin
  2. Mash up the bean paste more
  3. Don't overproof
  4. Put down some sort of parchment or rice paper on the steamer first
  5. Don't let them touch each other in the steamer
I'm sure there are more things I could do better, but this is a start. I think I had ONE out of sixteen that looked like it was supposed to.
