Buy fresh yuzu fruit

Yuzu is a highly aromatic citrus fruit, delivering a complex blend of mandarin, grapefruit and lemon notes. The wonderfully tart yuzu zest is a staple of Japanese cuisine. As well as desserts, this most popular Japanese citrus fruit is used to flavour ponzu and soy sauce - as well as yuzu tea or alcoholic drinks such as a yuzu sour.

Yuzu combines spectacularly well with cream-based desserts and sorbet, makes wonderful jam, candied or chocolate peel and adds a fantastic burst of powerful citrus to cocktails and sparkling water.

When the fruit is unripe, green and rock-hard, yuzu peel can be grated and used in wonderful garnishes for fish, soups or salad dressings. The fruit is also used to make yuzu kosho: a spicy fermented paste made with yuzu zest, chillies and salt.

Available in 250g, 500g & 1kg.

Stores well in the fridge for 14 days.

Marmalade time again

I think this is the sixth or seventh year that I've bought a stash of yuzu from the Wasabi Company, and it's always a high spot for me now that seasonality is a rare thing. (Although I remember tomatoes and other taken-for-granted fruit and veg being absent every winter.) The yuzu always arrive in good condition and there's nothing wasted. Every single bit gets used except for the the hard lump on the stem end. Those that don't end up as marmalade go to the freezer, divided into zest, shaved peel, pulp, and seeds for a pectin boost for other preserves. If there's any frozen peel left when the new season's fruit arrives, it gets crystallised. Now that's what I call value for money.

If you like the yuzu jam, try making the gloriously golden marmalade with just yuzu and sugar, nothing else, not even a dash of lemon juice. There are lots of recipes out there, some of them with a relatively short storage life, but I use the Seville marmalade method, and it always turns out well and lasts a very long time. (I had some of the 2018 batch this morning... firmer, darker, but just as delicious.) Blissful on toast, of course, but also perfect for glazing ham.

That marmalade looks amazing Karen! Thank you for sharing that with us, and making our stomachs rumble :)

This is a real treat.

I'm thrilled to have been able to buy yuzu. I have bought two 500g batches which are in the freezer waiting for the Seville oranges to appear in the shops. I'm just sitting on my hands, waiting to make some Yuzu and Seville Orange Marmalade for the first time ever. I think it will be stupendous! It's a great way of using the entire fruit with next to no wastage. I would imagine that yuzu have a high pectin content that will help the marmalade set.

Thank you Hilary, the Yuzu & Seville Orange marmalade sounds divine - what a great idea! Hope it turns out well for you :)

not as scented as usual

The yuzu this time were much bigger than usual, and weren't as scented as before.

Hi Keiko, thanks for taking the time to review the Fresh Yuzu and sorry you felt they were only worth 3 stars on your review. As a regular customer, you know we do all we can to make sure everything meets the high expectations of our customers. All feedback is valuable to us, good, bad or indifferent; you are the first to make this comment on this year's yuzu so we will take it onboard. You may have noticed the yuzu were not fully ripe yet as it is still relatively early in the season (this is the first batch we have had available) and so the scent will increase as they ripen and I hope they will be more satisfactory for you.
