While spring never seems to truly arrive (in Chicago), it is not too early to enjoy the spring sweet treat. That’s right, it's time for Hanami Dango!! <花見団子> or Flower Viewing Dango. In Japan, these dumpling are usually enjoyed in early spring, and as the name suggest, during the flower viewing picnic. Hanami Dango usually come in three colors (red, white and green) For this recipe, we are going to use all natural coloring. However, it may be more convenient for some to use artificial color.
This recipe is very simple to make and is good as a group activity before going out on a picnic. To take things up a notch, I have also include a the recipe for matcha fondue dip as well.
