Yuzu

— FRUIT – CITRUS

Yuzu

Yuzu is a citrus fruit with a bumpy skin, which contains an aromatic taste and thus gives beautiful accents to dishes. Compared to a lemon, yuzu is less sharp. Yuzu is also used in some Asian countries for bathing. The peel then gives off a wonderful aroma and warmth that would reduce the cold and relax the mind. This is called yuzuyu.

Oorsprong

Fresh yuzu is still limited available. Nevertheless, Yuzu from the Kochi region in Japan is available from November to February. The conditions in which the Yuzu grows the best, are mountain areas where the temperature differs during day and night which creates the perfect flavour. But nowadays there are also yuzus from Spain and Morocco.
