Thursday Snapshot: Green Pea Ice Cream

Sweet green pea ice cream bar in China. Yum.
The weather is turning hot here in Tokyo, which invariably puts me in the mood for ice cream. As I wandered through my vast selection of photos I spotted this one. Last year while traveling in China the weather was crazy hot. Like any reasonable culture, China offered ice cream often and in a fascinating variety of flavors. This one is green pea.

Japan has taught me that beans can be done very well as a dessert. I love my anko stuffed mochi, manju, or whatever else one might decide to tuck those lovely little adzuki into with some added sugar. Peas didn't seem like such a leap. It was stupendous.
