Wasabi pack : Azumino wasabi root + wasabi grater


57,70 € tax incl.

Description : Wasabi has been consumed in Japan for centuries, particularly for its anti-bacterial properties. This wasabi is cultivated in the mountainous region of Azumino, renowned for producing the best wasabi in Japan thanks to the clear and rich spring water from snowmelt of the Japanese Alps and the harsh climate of the region. With the stainless steel grater you will be able to make a smooth wasabi paste, with a hot and fresh flavor that gets up to the nose and a unique aroma developing gradually. This grater can also be used with garlic, ginger or even yuzu to realize a thin zest paste. Made of stainless steel, it is easy to use and maintain. It does not rust easily, you just have to rinse it after use.

Flavor : Once grated, it reveals a beautiful green color, a very fresh and powerful spiciness, then come the softer notes. It's this palette of flavors that makes Azumino wasabi so famous!

Use : Wasabi is known to spice up raw fish like sashimi and sushi. It also goes very well with Japanese cuisine such as "Soba" noodles, grilled eel or cold "Hiyayakko" tofu for example. But wasabi also fits very well into Western and modern cuisine, for example as an accompaniment to a beef tartare, in a wasabi oil, in an ice cream, a yuzu and wasabi pear compote, a cocktail, etc.

Way of use : The end of the wasabi rhizome is where the oldest cells are located while the top, near the stem is where the youngest and freshest cells are. They have a milder flavor, a brighter color and are more flavored. The central part of the wasabi rhizome is well balanced in terms of spiciness, flavor and texture. Over time, when the wasabi is grated from the root upwards, the wasabi becomes harder or even more bitter and its color lighter. We therefore advise you to grate it from the top that was attached to the leaf.

The hot flavor of wasabi wears off quickly after it has been grated as the spicy particles are very volatile. That is why the more you consume it freshly grated the stronger the spicy flavor. If you prefer a lighter spiciness and a pleasant bitterness, let it sit for a few minutes after grating it.

Ingredient : Fresh Azumino wasabi - Material : Stainless steel 

Preservation : Once the sachet opened, in order not to lose freshness, gradually grate the desired amount and store your wasabi root in the refrigerator wrapped in damp absorbent paper and consume within a week. If you don't consume all, grate your entire wasabi root and freeze it the spread into a freezer bag. You just need to defrost the desired amount little by little. When its spiciness or flavor has worn off, use it in cooking, heated to bring out its aroma.

Origin : Japan

Shelf life : 2-3 weeks

Container : Sachet with food grade gaz

Azumino is well known for its wasabi production. The city is located at the foothills of the Japanese Alps, from which depths spring out pure water that comes from snow melt. This pure and abundant water is essential to grow wasabi as it is a plant that requires a lot of water. Not only is the water abundant, it also has the same temperature all year long, which is the other required characteristic to grow a high quality wasabi. Therefore, wasabi producers from Azumino are renowned for their high quality wasabi production that can be enjoyed all year long. Throughout this pack, not one but two wasabi producers make their way into your kitchen thanks to the wasabi grater of Wasabiya Yuu and fresh wasabi from Fujiya Wasabi Farm.
