Hojun (Full-bodied) Sesame Oil, 3.7 oz
Sesame oil is an amazingly fragrant and delicious oil that can be used for everything from stir-frying vegetables to garnishing salads. This premium sesame oil has been made with the highest graded sesame seeds in the world, and was processed using the traditional method, rather than mass-market methods that utilize chemical additives to promote a quick extraction of sesame oil in a shorter period of time. The traditional time consuming process without any chemicals is well worth it, because the result is a full-bodied, aromatic oil. You'll definitely notice a significant difference in this sesame oil versus other mass-produced sesame oils.
Sesame oil is a versatile ingredient. Use as cooking oil for stir-fry for tofu, meat, veggies, or any types of noodles including rice noodles, yakisoba noodles, udon noodles, and buckwheat noodles. Drizzle it on soup dishes such as udon or miso soup. Whisk it into vinaigrette or salad dressing such as rice vinegar. It goes well with a little tamari soy sauce. Of course, adding sesame seeds is always a perfect combination. In Japan (especially in Eastern Japan), it is added to tempura oil or salad oil to cook tempura or deep-fried dishes, resulting in a subtle nutty flavor.
