If you're on the hunt for authentic kombu seaweed but find yourself unable to find quality kombu in your local Asian supermarket, then consider trying J Taste Hidaka Kombu.
J Taste Kombu comes in the form of an economy-sized pack of dried kombu, sourced directly from the Hidaka subprefecture in Hokkaido, Japan. Hidaka kombu, also affectionately known as Mitsuiishi, stands out among the seven distinct kombu species harvested in Hokkaido. Its defining characteristics include a delightfully soft texture and a mellow, rich flavor profile.
Hidaka kombu is celebrated as one of the most versatile variations of kombu, suitable for both preparing dashi and incorporating into various culinary creations. Once you try this Hidaka kombu out for yourself, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how versatile of an ingredient it is.
This dried kombu is also perfect for vegetarians or vegans, as you can craft delicious vegan-friendly dashi stock with it. This versatile seaweed adds a layer of umami to any dish, making it a beloved choice among chefs and home cooks alike. So, whether you're an experienced culinary enthusiast or just beginning your journey into the world of Japanese cuisine, our authentic Hidaka kombu is a must-have addition to your pantry.
To make dashi, add 15g of kombu to 1L of water and heat on high. Remove the kombu right before the water boils. Add seasonings like salt, shoyu etc. to your taste.
For other dishes like stir-fries, salads, and furikake, soften the kombu first in a bowl of water for 10-20 minutes, or until tender.
Other ways to use this kombu are in kobumaki (stuffed kombu roll), making knots of kombu for oden soup, or tsukudani (foods simmered in sweetened soy sauce).
