Cooking with

Kanten makes an especially good summer dessert since it is light, cooling, and requires little time and heat to prepare.


  • 4 cups juice (apple, apple-strawberry, or apple-raspberry)
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 6 tbsp Mitoku Kanten Flakes
  • 1 tsp finely grated lemon peel
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cups fresh berries

Preparation Method

  1. Pour juice into a saucepan and add salt. Sprinkle kanten over juice and allow to sit for 15 minutes.
  2. Bring juice to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Simmer 3 minutes, then remove from heat. Add lemon peel and juice.
  3. Pour hot juice over fresh whole or sliced berries in a casserole dish or mold. Refrigerate or set in a cool place, uncovered. The kanten will be firm in 1-2 hours. (If you want kanten to set more quickly, place mixture in shallow individual serving bowls and refrigerate.)
