Crunchy Pickled Yuzu Daikon
No meal in Japan is complete without a side of pickles (known as tsukemono). Daikon and carrots are the base for these refreshing and crunchy tsukemono. The addition of both yuzu peel and yuzu juice provide a natural tart, sweet citrus flavors while the pickling ingredients add a mellow acidity and subtle umami.
Yuzu Sushi Vinegar
Sushi vinegar is typically made with rice vinegar seasoned with sugar and salt which is then combined with rice to make sushi rice. This rare sushi vinegar also includes yuzu peels, which add refreshing citrus accents, and is used by top chefs at sushi restaurants and traditional Japanese-style restaurants. It’s made in one of the leading vinegar breweries in Kishu that has been brewing traditional sake and vinegar in Wakayama Prefecture for over 100 years.
Yuzu Salt Candy
These delightful and generational yuzu salt candies have a mild, natural sweetness and are the perfect balance of sweet, citrus and salt flavors.
Yuzu Noodle Sauce
This light, citrus “mazeru mentsuyu” (mixed noodle sauce) is made from Choko’s signature soy sauce combined with yuzu juice from Kochi Prefecture and is the perfect dressing for making a refreshing cold noodle salad.
Spicy Yuzu Kosho Cookies
These bite-sized cookies are made with flavorful yuzu kosho from Miyazaki Prefecture which is uniquely combined with wheat flour, eggs and olive oil to create a cookie that has a citrus yuzu flavor that enhances overtime and is finished with a slight spicy aftertaste.
Ōsumi Yuzu Green Tea
This steamed green tea is made from the freshest tea leaves picked in Ōsumi, located in the eastern part of Kagoshima Prefecture. The leaves are carefully and diligently steamed to produce a tea with the highest quality color, richness and taste, which is then combined with yuzu to create a tea that balances vegetal green tea with tart, sweet citrus.
