1 teaspoon sancho pepper -- garnish
2 1/2 cups sake
1 1/2 cups mirin -- * see note
2 cups brown sugar
4 cups japanese soy sauce
1/2 cup tamari soy sauce
1 small onion -- chopped
4 cloves garlic
1 piece fresh ginger -- chopped, 2 inch piece
1 small apple -- chopped
1 medium orange with peel -- chopped

Preparation / Directions:

Make the tare yaki sauce: Combine in a medium pot all the tare yaki sauce ingredients. Bring everything to a boil and cook until the mixture is reduced by 20 percent. Strain into a large jar. The sauce will keep in the refrigerator up to 3 months. Preheat the barbecue to medium-high heat or turn on the broiler and adjust the oven rack to 6 inches beneath the heating element. Brush the mochi with a little oil. Grill or broil for 3 minutes on each side, or until it is puffed and golden. Dip the mochi in tare yaki sauce and then wrap one of the nori strips around each piece. Sprinkle with a little bit of sancho pepper and serve.
