Ginger and Mochi

Grandma and Grandpa dropped by our house the other morning, big plastic container in hand. Ginger and Mochi. Grandma makes this “good luck” sweet every Christmas, New Years, and on certain birthdays. Rounds of chewy pink and white mochi in a calming ginger syrup bath – pleasing to both the eye and tongue. I prefer this sweet chilled, straight out of the fridge. Mom and dad, however, like it warm, which actually does sound more appealing on this snowy NYC morning. Hope you have a Happy New Years!

    Hey Kristina!We don’t really use a recipe – it’s all by eye. It’s simple though, just ginger boiled in water, add cane sugar to taste. Boil the mochi balls in a bath of water, rinse under cool water, and then add to the ginger syrup. ^_^
