Wasabi is a richly fragrant rhizome native to Japan that has a unique flavor and spiciness. Wasabi is one of the most difficult plants to cultivate due to their fickle nature and long maturation period of 2 years. Kinjurushi wasabi is true Japanese wasabi with a small amount of European horseradish added for heat. It is a richly flavorful condiment that is a phenomenal blend of spiciness, fragrance, and umami. Additionally, this wasabi is grated using an oroshi grater yielding a coarse texture that is perfect as a condiment.
Uses: Pair wasabi with a variety of traditional Japanese foods such as sushi, sashimi, soba, udon, and steak. Wasabi makes an excellent addition to dressings and sauces.
