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!
what’s in the pack?
You can enjoy 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 mountains of Wakayama, this yuzu powder is widely used in Japanese gastronomy, but not only there! It became a fashionable product a few years ago for European chefs and its deliciousness spread around the world in the blink of an eye.
Its savory acid taste impressed many chefs, who 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's kitchens: 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 starters 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 a Japanese custom and is a popular tradition to relax the body and mind. Yuzu baths are reputed to soften the skin, as well as 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.
You can use the powder as a condiment on all your meats: beef, lamb, duck but a must is to combine it with chicken, as they are truly made for each other!
It will flavor all your fish, weather steamed or grilled. Add it into your marinades, but also into your sauces and gravy dishes. Sprinkle it on your seafood and shellfish dishes: scallops, shrimps, prawns, lobsters, etc.
Also add some yuzu powder to season your soups, summer salads, beets, avocados, hot goat cheese, radishes, or your tofu for vegetarians, in order 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!
For dessert, you can use it everywhere. Enhance your pastry with its delicious scent: ganaches, Bavarois, pastry cream, whipped cream, cakes, pies, mousses, madeleines, muffins, flans, cookies, etc. Flavor your jams, marmalades, and other coulis with a little dried yuzu zest powder. It goes wonderfully well too with chocolate too, so add a teaspoon to all your chocolate preparations: cakes, chocolate creams, chocolate mousse, etc.!
Isn't your mouth watering just reading this description? If so, don't think twice about it and rinse your mouth with a yuzu flavor. Well yes, it works absolutely great with all kinds of drinks too!
Try it in your favorite tea or cocktails!
Lastly, you can replace any citrus fruit in any recipe with yuzu zest to twist it with its unique taste.
