Maruzen Oboro Kombu 40g
丸善 おぼろ昆布 40g
Kombu (or konbu, as it is spelled in Japan), is high in glutamic acid, which creates the savoury, umami flavour that is a hallmark of the Japanese food. Kombu is used on its own to flavour and thicken soup, or as a core ingredient for making the popular soup stock dashi.
Use to create a delicious stock, just add boiling water to release the flavour.
Kombu that has been softened during cooking is eaten as part of the meal, or sliced and simmered in mirin and soy sauce to make tsukudani.
As well as being a good source of glutamic acid, kombu also contains high levels of iodine, essential for healthy growth and development and is also a great source of dietary fibre.
Keep out of direct sunlight and keep at room temperature.
