Hon kuzu 5kg


235,50 € tax incl.

Description : Hon kuzu is made from the roots of the plant of the same name, also known as Japanese vine. Rich in starch, kuzu roots are reduced to a fine powder to be used as a thickener, especially in Japanese confectionery. Compared to other thickeners, kuzu particles are extremely thin, resulting in a fine and unique texture. It also helps promote better temperature preservation of food. Our kuzu producer is a family owned business that has been making kuzu for 450 years and is honored to present their product during the enthronement ceremony of emperors. 

Flavor : A particularly smooth and gentle texture with a neutral taste.

Use : Kuzu is used to thicken sauces and soups, giving them a smooth aspect. It can also be used to make fruit paste, jelly and more delicacies. Hon kuzu can be sprinkled on top of vegetables before cooking to make them crunchier or combined in a frying mix for a crunchier result. Once mixed to a small amount of water and slightly heated up, kuzu becomes transparent.

Ingredients : Kuzu starch 100%

Preservation : Keep at room temperature, away from sunlight, heat and moisture.

Morino Yoshino-kuzu Honpo was founded in Yoshino, Nara and its name derives from the city it was founded in. The production of kuzu starch debuted during the 16th century under the lead of the founder of Morino Yoshino-kuzu Honpo, Tadashi Hyobu. Striving to improve the products, his successor decided to move the company to Ouba, which area is known for its really low temperature during winter and where water flowing out from the depth of the earth is purer. Thus, all these characteristics make Ouba the perfect place to make kuzu. Pure and abundant water, and low temperature are required to make a good kuzu and almost 20 generations after Tadashi Hyobu, this traditional production process is still used, without adding any additives, to make the hon kuzu we offer. The same kuzu is also used during enthronement ceremonies to be presented to emperors. Ideal to thicken your preparations, this imperial quality kuzu brought you by Morino Yoshina-kuzu Honpo through Umami will undoubtedly find its way to your kitchen counter and enhance your dishes.
