Soy Sauce Sweets

“Shoyu”, soy sauce, is one of the most important seasonings for Japanese cuisine. We wouldn’t be able to live without it. Interestingly, it is just more than a seasoning nowadays. It is also used even to make sweets, which is still rare even in Japan, though.

This is Swiss Roll with sauce made from “shoyu”.
I doubted whether it tasted good, but, surprisingly, the nice salted and sweetened flavor pleased my palate. How about tea, then?  To me, Hojicha, which has nice-smelling, was a good partner with this sweet.
