Individual Rhizomes


Available Options


 

Choose a rhizome size to match your dinner plans. Our fresh wasabi is grown in natural, mineral-rich water on our Dorset and Hampshire farms. The prized rhizomes take at least 18 months to reach harvest. Fine grating breaks down the wasabi at a cellular level instigating an enzyme reaction that delivers an aromatic, fresh flavoured pungency with a natural sweetness.

Fresh wasabi is classically paired with sushi and sashimi. Versatile in the extreme fresh wasabi can also flavour dressings, butters, sauces, ceviches, gravadlax, sorbets, foams and freshly grated will accompany meat or fish.

Wasabi is a natural product and weight can vary, we will always carefully select a rhizome to match or exceed your chosen product.

Fresh wasabi should be stored in the fridge – see details here

Rhizomes will store well for two weeks in the plastic bag they were sent in. Keep the bag in the fridge unsealed. Rinse in cold water every 1-2 days for maximum shelf life.

If you want to freeze leftover wasabi, grate it to a paste, wrap in cling film and freeze immediately. When you are ready to use, allow it to de-frost, mix and serve. Whole rhizomes do not freeze well as they lose flavour and pungency.
