red bean paste

I wanted to make red-bean paste to make red bean ice cream. Here we go (following Hiroko Shimbo's recipe). Bring one cup azuki beans to a boil. Drain; boil in four cups water for an hour, until the liquid barely covers the beans. Purée the beans.

Pass the beans through a sieve.

And wrap in a tight towel. Rinse in two changes of water. Squeeze out excess moisture.

Bring to a boil with a third-cup of water and a cup of sugar.

Cook until a thick paste and voilà! it's done!
