Bontan,
the largest of citrus fruits,
was made into a chewy, citrus delight
called
Bontan Ame in 1926 in Kagoshima
and it has not changed since
.
Kagoshima prefecture is famous for Bontan
so it makes sense Bontan Ame comes from Kagoshima
.
This delicious morsel
is wrapped in rice paper
,
edible paper you are never sure
if you can eat or not
-
for me, the picture on the cover
makes me think
of all of those beautiful,
picture-perfect fruits in the groceries in Japan.
How can you cut those things?
As an American
I can not,
but I am sure
the Japanese have found a way to cut the fruit and do it justice.
