Dashi is a stock made from katsuobushi and kombu that is a fundamental part of Japanese cooking. This flavorful broth adds a deep savoriness, minerality, and a hint of smokiness to anything it is used in. Hondashi is the quintessence of dashi. All of that flavor is concentrated into a granulated powder that replicates the flavor of dashi without the time-intensive process of making it.
Uses: Mix hondashi with water to taste to make a flavorful broth to use as a base for soup. Add hondashi to foods or sauces to improve the flavor.
