コンペイトウ作り~Making Kompeito

今回はポルトガルから伝来したコンペイトウ作りを体験してきました!あの小さな一粒が出来上がるまでになんと2週間はかかるそうです。カラフルな色のものや、ほうじ茶やコーヒー味のコンペイトウもあってたくさん試食してきました!

On this week’s trip we went on the train to an exhibit in Fukuoka. This exhibit was sponsored by one of Japan’s largest candy manufacturers, that has been in the industry since 1907.

We learned of the history of this candy, called compeito, originally confeito. This activity stimulated my knowledge of early European interaction with the Japanese, regarding the time period, evangalism, weapons, and sugar.

It was fun!
