Someone sent a box of hoshi imo 干し芋, sweet potatoes that are steamed then dried until they are dense and sticky. They don’t keep long since they are still soft, but are so sweet without any added sugar. They are a specialty of Hitachinaka in Ibaraki prefecture, where these were sent from. It’s a congratulations for getting out of the hospital gift for my mother and me from a good friend😊.
