Nakano Shuzo Frozen Sake Lees - Sakekasu 500g

Frozen sake lees, also known as "sake kasu" in Japanese, is a byproduct of the sake-making process. Sake is a Japanese rice wine that is made by fermenting rice, water, and yeast. After the sake has been pressed and filtered, the remaining solids are called sake lees.

Sake lees are a rich source of nutrients and have a unique flavour profile that is often described as sweet, creamy, and slightly nutty. Frozen sake lees are simply sake lees that have been frozen to extend their shelf life and preserve their freshness.

Frozen sake lees can be used in a variety of ways in Japanese cuisine. They are often used as a marinade for fish or meat, as a seasoning for vegetables, or as a base for soups and stews. They can also be mixed with sake or water to create a refreshing drink.
