Our Konbu is specially picked along the coasts of south hokkaido and processed carefully to make sure each piece of konbu can bring out the most flavor possible. Konbu is the base to making a dashi stock which is then the base of many Japanese home cooked dishes such as miso soup, ramen soup, hot pot and many more!
Our Konbu comes in an easy to use 100g pack and is perfect for home usage, konbu is extremely flavourful when placed in a pot of boiling water together with Hanakatsuo Bonito flakes. Glutamic acid found in kelp enhances the flavour of ingredients and soups as it is the source of "Umami"
The steps are simple:
Place 15g of Konbu for every 1 litre of water into a pot
Place the pot on the stove and turn on a gentle/small flame/low heat
Let the konbu simmer in the pot and try not to bring it to a boil
after 1 hour it is ready!
Add in bonito flakes and other condiments to your liking to add taste and flavour
Most recommended with our Narabi Uni and some Soy sauce.
