In East Asian cuisine, the adzuki bean is commonly sweetened before eating. In particular, it often is boiled with sugar, resulting in red bean paste (anko), a very common ingredient in all of these cuisines. It also is common to add flavoring to the bean paste, such as chestnut.

Red bean paste is used in many Chinese dishes, such as tangyuan, zongzi, mooncakes, baozi, and red bean ice. It also serves as a filling in Japanese sweets such as anpan, dorayaki, imagawayaki, manjū, monaka, anmitsu, taiyaki, and daifuku. A more liquid version, using adzuki beans boiled with sugar and a pinch of salt, produces a sweet dish called hong dou tang. Adzuki beans commonly are eaten sprouted, or boiled in a hot, tea-like drink. Some Asian cultures enjoy red bean paste as a filling or topping for various kinds of waffles, pastries, baked buns, or biscuits.

Traditionally in Japan, rice with adzuki beans (赤飯; sekihan) is cooked for auspicious occasions. Adzuki beans are used in amanattō and ice cream with the whole bean (such as in the ‘Cream & Red Bean’ product produced by IMEI) or as paste. 

Storage Advice:
Dried beans last for years, However the older they are the longer they will take to cook. Canned beans last for years and fresh beans last about a week.

You can help dried and canned beans stay fresh longer by storing them in a cool, dark place at a temperature under 75 degrees Fahrenheit.

Fresh beans are best kept in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

Once cooked, beans should be stored in a tightly closed container to keep out moisture and other contaminants and then placed in the fridge. Always place leftover product into a proper airtight container before storing in the fridge. For a long-term option, you can freeze your beans while preserving their taste if you use a freezer safe container.

Some benefits of proper food storage include eating healthier, cutting food costs and helping the environment by avoiding waste.
