Yuzu juice

Have any of you used it? And where did you get it? I can see that Amazon offer it & a few other sites - costs anything from £6 to £10 per 100 ml bottle.

Is it worth the cost, & what has anyone used it in?

If you look on Wiki you will see the juice is recommended as a seasoning.

and it seems its a great cold cure, and great for marmalade making....

hmmmm interesting.

and yes i know i could have googled it - but was more wondering how queenie came across the product to mention it here. sounds like queenie may have stumbled across the 2014 ingredient of the year!

It's one of those ingredients that you hear about on the various cooking programmes. James Martin mentioned it in one of his recent shows but I first heard of it a few years ago although I haven't seen it for sale in any of my normal supermarket haunts. It's supposed to be a cross between a mandarin flavour & grapefruit or lime, i.e. citrus juice, but better, or so they say. Just that whilst I'm happy to buy new stuff, I question whether 6 quid for such a small volume is worth it ...? And if it isn't readily available is it just a bit faddy? I managed to get some pomegranate molasses - and that really is quite a special ingredient. But this - I just can't decide.

I had a Yuzu bath once. There is a magical place in Japan, Hakone. Its near Fuji. I suppose you could call it a resort. It has an impressive open air museum full of Henry Moore sculptures, picasso and then there is a Spa. The spa is open air and hewn out of rock into the mountainside. At night it is lit by millions of fairy lights. Its a huge collection of small pools or hot baths, coffee, green tea, wine, yuzu and many others..... Its an experience and place I'll never forget.

Sorry went off on a tangent there. I will be popping into natural tomoz our local japanese deli/grocer for noodles n veg stuff. I could ask the girls in there for some info if you like and report back. They are really chatty and helpful.

Info from people who may know ...

Yes please, Maggie- that would be really helpful. If they think it's fab then I can try to get some, but if they think it's overrated then I will forget it until the price comes down!

If that Japanese deli sells it then of course they'll say it's great, if they don't then you'll get something like "sorry,not enough call for it", or something, lol.

Found this in the special selection in Sainsbury's(think it was one of the stores in Derby) going to experiment with marinades and sauces to begin with. Seen it used on Sat. Kitchen.

Can you remember how much it was, foxy? And do you think the flavour is remarkably different? Let me know what you think of it ....

They sold 3 types of juice at £4 for 100ml (40per cent?!) £9 and £12 for 150ml(100 per cent) but they is Londontown prices!! She said it is an excellent ingredient in dipping sauce. A delicious seasoning in one pot cooking, chicken and fish she mentioned and can be used in puddings. Sounds versatile! : )

Ta for that - I will see if I can get any then. That sounds cheaper than the web, but I will give sainsbury's a try first...
