Yuzu, also known as Japanese lemon, is one of the world's most popular citrus fruits due to its strong and distinctive flavor. The true origin of yuzu is unknown but it is thought to be a hybrid born of a cross between Ichang papeda and Satsuma mandarin. Yuzu is a sour citrus that is used as a flavoring, not eaten as a fruit, similar to sudachi, kabosu, or calamansi. Yuzu has a refreshingly tart flavor and unique floral fragrance that is reminiscent of lemon, pomelo, and mandarin orange. This citrus is particularly popular in Japan, China, and Southeast Asia where it is ubiquitous as a flavoring in both sweet and savory dishes. This intensely aromatic juice adds a touch of complexity and aroma in numerous applications: use it to flavor sauces, add a final touch to cooked dishes, or flavor desserts and cocktails.
Uses: A simple and elegant way to use yuzu is to add a splash of juice to a good quality soy sauce to make ponzu dipping sauce. This dip is commonly used with sashimi, soba, and shabu shabu meats. Add yuzu juice to cocktails, desserts, and sauces to add a unique flavor.
