Yuzu is a citrus fruit between lemon and tangerine, but its flavor goes beyond with hints of orange sweetness but the acidity of key lime or lemon. De facto, yuzu is a star condiment in Japan, in addition to being excellent for your health! Until you have experienced it, Yuzu flavor is hard to imagine, yet once you’ve tried it you’ll never forget the taste!
You can enjoy here a carefully selected Yuzu powder, made from a unique Japanese citrus fruit between mandarin and lemon that has a typical acidic flavor and is very fragrant, a scent close to citron with notes of grapefruit and tangerine. Made with care and love by our VIP (Very Important Producer) Nagaoka-san from the mountain of Wakayama, this yuzu powder is widely used in Japanese gastronomy but not only! It became a fashionable product a few years ago in European kitchen chiefs and spread its deliciousness around the world in the blink of an eye.
Its savory acid taste impressed many chefs that have adopted it in the kitchens of great restaurants. As it’s a citrus fruit with very little pulp, very little juice, and a lot of large seeds, the most used part of yuzu is its zest. To be a chef at home we suggest you use the peels of a basic lemon and mix it with our yuzu powder to prepare a delicacy that is also very popular in the chef kitchen: the yuzu peel marmalade. Twist and mix it with your favorite recipes.
The dried yuzu zest has a powerful and balanced taste. Acid but so fruity. Its use extends from starter to dessert, including drinks and grandmother's remedies, in short: you can sprinkle it everywhere, even in your bath! Indeed, taking a bath perfumed with yuzu is part of Japanese customs and is a popular tradition to relax the body and mind. Yuzu bath is reputed to soften the skin, to relieve fatigue and muscular tension.
But it is in Japanese kitchens that this product is a star. It is used to flavor shabu shabu (Japanese fondue) or chawanmushi (salted egg custard), in the Shishimi spice blend and is one of the main ingredients of the famous Ponzu sauce.
Make it yours and use the powder as a condiment on all your meats: beef, lamb, duck but the must is to combine it with chicken, they are truly made for each other! It will flavor all your fish and seafood, steamed, grilled. Add it in your marinades but also in your sauces and gravy dishes. Sprinkle it on your summer salads, beets, avocados, hot goat cheese, radishes, or your tofu for vegetarians to add a touch of freshness to your favorite veggies. Really, don’t hesitate to garnish your salad dressing with a pinch of yuzu, it works wonders!
