Amazake Recipe (Japanese Traditional Energy Drink in Rice Cooker) Beauty Drink

Amazake Recipe (Japanese Traditional Energy Drink in Rice Cooker) Beauty Drink

We are making Amazake with this dried Koji, a type of edible fungus used to make miso, soy sauce and sake. This drink brings back memories. My mother made a lot of amazake in a large jar when she was in good health. This can be a great nutrient support to beat the hot summer heat.

  7. Next, insert a kitchen thermometer into the rice to achieve the right temperature. If the temperature is too high or too low, the enzymes produced by the koji will not convert the rice starch into sugar well, making it difficult to ferment.

Recipe Notes

Amazake is rich in vitamins and essential amino acids and it is also known as a medical drip for drinking in Japan because of the similarity of their ingredients.
Amazake is written as Sweet Sake in Japanese but it contains no alcohol so people from all generations can enjoy it.
If the mixture is kept warm for 10 hours, the surface turns slightly yellow and the sweetness gets stronger but you can still enjoy the amazake.

Does the type of rice used in the recipe matter? I have Botan Calrose rice I would like to use for this recipe. Would that rice be ok?
