Sweet Red Bean Paste
|Red beans||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Water||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Sugar||3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)|
|Peanut oil||6 Tablespoon|
1. Wash red beans. Place in a saucepan with cold water and bring to a boil. Then simmer, covered, until beans are soft . Let cool slightly.
2. Strain beans through cheesecloth or force through a ricer. (Discard skins.) Combine beans with sugar and peanut oil.
