Red Bean Paste

1 c Chinese red beans
Water to cover
1/2 (up to) 3/4 c Sugar
4 (up to) 6 tb Peanut oil


Wash red beans. Place in a saucepan with cold water and bring to a boil. Then simmer, covered, until beans are soft (about 1 hour). Let cool slightly.

Strain beans through cheesecloth or force through a ricer. (Discard skins.) Combine beans with sugar and peanut oil.

Oil a pan lightly and heat. Add bean mixture and stir over low heat for 5 minutes. (The heat must be very low and the stirring constant to prevent scorching.)
