Japanese Yuzu Marmalade

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.

Prefecture: Gifu

Gifu is Japan's literal and figurative heart, with untouched traditional villages nestled in picturesque mountain ranges. Gifu Prefecture is steeped in history, and its significance shines through to this day. The pivotal battle that united the nation took place at  Sekigahara , and you can visit the battlefield today. Swordsmiths practice their craft in Seki, and traditional cormorant fishing is still alive along the Nagara River. The town of Takayama has gone mostly untouched by time, while the nearby villages of Shirakawa-go and  Gokayama  are one of the few places where thatched-roof houses remain in Japan. The dramatic mountains, pure rivers and snowy winters create a remarkably picturesque setting.

Hida beef is a famous specialty—which can be pricey, but is well worth it. Known for its tenderness, it is best served as a steak, but is also found grilled on skewers or added to hotpots. Head to a shabu- shabu restaurant for some good options.
