I had an opportunity to hang out with Akemi’s (my sister-in-law) stepmother 6 months ago, and that was the first time and the last time. Sadly, cancer took her away. She had wonderful smile and offered me her homemade “yubeshi”.

One of my very favorite Japanese pastry “YUBESHI“. It’s made from MOCHI GOME. These ones here (pictured) are bit different from what I used to have, since these are made by Akemi’s stepmother; they are wrapped in seaweed. The ones my mother make have no seaweed around them. They are both super good. Mmm, Yummy.
