Kanroni of natsume (sweet-boiled jujube fruits)

Natsume (jujube) trees were traditionally planted in the yards of many households in Hida region, and people harvested their fruits in autumn and boiled them in sugar and soy sauce to make sweets. Ripe, madder red color fruits are sweet and can be eaten fresh, but for the preparation of sweetened boiled sweets, lightly-colored, hard fruits are selected. It is too difficult to resist taking going back for seconds when offered as sweets with tea or as a snack.

A uniique sweet taste after elaborate simmering
It is a new Road Station which was just opened in April 2016. We looked for ways to prepare some food using locally harvested jujube, and decided to make Kanroni, that is, a traditional sweet boiling cooking method. We use relatively large amounts of sugar and boil the fruits for over two hours to offer this natural food from the highlands.
