Pickled Tsuda Turnip Greens Furikake, 0.7 oz
Freshly harvested Tsuda turnip greens and salt are the only ingredients in Kenchanzuke’s Pickled Tsuda Turnip Greens Furikake. It’s a Japanese-style savory sprinkle, which features a robust flavor and aroma with an intense umami derived from fermentation. Kenchanzuke, tsukemono (Japanese-style pickles) specialty maker in the Izumo region of Shimane Prefecture, knows that fresh, quality vegetables have the power to deliver great flavors even after fermentation, without needing any additives. Kenchanzuke’s lactic acid fermentation naturally boosts the umami, flavor, and aroma of Tsuda turnip greens. These features are even further enhanced by the company’s special methods when processing the pickled greens into the furikake’s dried flakes. Because of its robust flavor, intense aroma, and crunchy texture, Pickled Tsuda Turnip Greens Furikake has more versatility than traditional furikake, which is usually enjoyed by sprinkling over cooked rice. You can also use Pickled Tsuda Turnip Greens Furikake as a seasoning for fried rice, pilaf, pasta, or stir-fried dishes. Tsuda turnip greens are a rich source of nutrition including beta carotene, B vitamins, dietary fiber, potassium, and iron. You can enjoy these benefits from the furikake as well.
Traditionally, furikake (Japanese-style savory sprinkles) is enjoyed sprinkled on cooked rice or dusted over onigiri rice balls. Pickled Tsuda Turnip Greens Furikake adds a great kick to cooked rice when used in the traditional way; however, its robust flavor, intense aroma, and crunchy texture make it more versatile! You can season fried rice and stir-fried dishes with it, as well as mixing it into pilaf, tempura batter, and pasta sauce. You can, of course, mix it into dressings and dipping sauces. This umami-rich furikake is great with olive oil, garlic, and cheese, so you can exploit its exquisite tastes with Italian or Spanish dishes like carpaccio, peperoncino pasta, pizza, ajillo, and paella.
