Yuzu

Japanese Citron

Yuzu has a strongly aromatic rind, quite distinct from Western citrus fruit like lemon and lime. Its zest is commonly used as a garnish while its juice is used as seasoning. Extremely versatile, it is used in a large number of Japanese dishes. Yuzu juice is an integral ingredient in the citrus-based sauce known as ponzu along with other Japanese citrus fruits such as sudachi, kabosu, and daidai. It can be used in savoury foods, cakes, ice creams and liquor.
