Wasabi is a fragrant rhizome native to Japan prized for its aromatic spiciness and sweet, pungent flavor. Wasabi is one of the most difficult plants to grow due to their stringent requirements and long maturation period of 2 years. Kinjirushi hon wasabi is 100% grated true Japanese wasabi with no added horseradish or mustard. It is a richly flavorful condiment that is sweet, fragrant, and umami with a distinctive sinus-clearing heat. This wasabi is processed using an oroshi grater yielding a slightly coarse texture that is perfect for sashimi or sauces. Try using wasabi together with its stem to amplify the flavors of both.
Uses: Wasabi is an essential part of a variety of traditional Japanese foods such as sushi, soba, and steak. Wasabi is mostly commonly mixed with soy sauce or ponzu to make a delicious dip but it is an excellent addition to a wide variety of sauces, dressings, and seasonings.
