100% Pure Japanese Sudachi Juice Extract, 5 floz
Sudachi citrus boasts a uniquely elegant aroma and refreshing tartness with an abundance of minerals. It actually has more citric acid and vitamin C than lemon! This bottled juice is made by squeezing only fresh sudachi harvested specifically from mid to late-September in Tokushima Prefecture, and it perfectly captures the refreshing aroma and flavor of the citrus. The locals in Tokushima have traditionally enjoyed sudachi extract as a seasoning, for mixing into drinks and making desserts, just like lemon and lime. Its soothing aroma and tart flavor are particularly great with dishes like grilled fish, sashimi, and fried chicken. You can also add a dash of sudachi extract into soy sauce and vinegar to make an original dressing or mixing it with mentsuyu (sauce for Japanese noodles) to invigorate your udon and somen noodles. It is also good for marinating raw fish, and serving it like ceviche, crudo, or carpaccio. No additives, colorings, or preservatives are used.
You can enjoy sudachi’s elegant aroma and distinct tartness just by using it like lemon or lime. Whether splashing over grilled fish, sashimi, and fried dishes, or mixing into dressings and noodle soups, the sudachi extract adds a wonderful accent to any dish. For example, you can easily make a wonderful salmon carpaccio with a Japanese twist. Just sprinkle salt and pepper over thinly-sliced sashimi-quality salmon, drizzle the sudachi extract over it, and then add a few drops of vegetable oil to finish. We also recommend you to use the sudachi extract for beverages—you can make a refreshing drink by diluting the sudachi extract with water and sweetening it with honey. If you freeze the drink, it transforms into a sudachi sorbet! You can make original cocktails just by adding sudachi extract to your choice of alcohol such as shochu, sake, vodka, or gin.
