[LIMITED QUANTITY AVAILABLE]
Ingredients:Sweet potato (from Kyushu), vegetable oil, sugar, soy sauce (includes wheat and soybeans), butter
This special treat combines satsumaimo (sweet potatoes) from southern Kyushu and Yamauchi Honten’s traditional honjozo (authentically brewed soy sauce). The sweet potatoes are fried with their skin on until crispy and then baked with a mix of butter, sugar and honjozo which adds a rich, umami sweetness.
Yamauchi Honten began making their miso and soy sauce over 270 years ago in 1751. In 1999, in an effort to preserve the local groundwater, they installed a rainwater infiltration basin and in 2009 became the first small and medium-sized enterprise to reach an agreement with the Council for Promotion of Water Recycling Farming to recycle groundwater in the Kumamoto region. These efforts are expected to replenish ~120,000 tons of groundwater annually.
