Yuzu is a Japanese citrus fruit with a flavour that is somewhere between Lemon and Mandarin with a less acidic, more delicate flavour. Naturally sweet, with no sugar thanks to a beetroot extract, making this super-food even more super! Don’t expect too much sweetness, this marmalade is more like an extremely fragrant lemon curd.
It adds incredible delicacy to elegant desserts like grilled peach meringue, but also works beautifully when paired with hard cheeses like a Pecorino Sardo or even on your morning toast (just don’t tell the Michelin-starred chefs who are also using it!).
Made using organic yuzu from Tokushima. The producer removes all imperfections and seeds. He naturally sweetens the product with beetroot instead of sugar to make the jam. The area the yuzu is picked is 300m above sea level, therefore there is a lot of rain and change in temperature, resulting in full-flavour yuzu!
A fantastic cheese board accompaniment.
