The wasabi rhizome also known as wasabi root will be dispatched trimmed. Most rhizomes are approximately 20 g in weight up to 200 g and the weight will not affect taste. At Wasabi Crop we harvest the rhizomes, then prepare them for vacuum packing. We then freeze the vacuum-packed rhizomes for our customers to contain their freshness for grating. On receipt of your wasabi rhizome, remove it from the vacuum pack and wash it under the tap with cold running water. Then wrap the wasabi rhizome in a damp cheesecloth - which is provided - and place it in the fridge until further use. Please store the wasabi rhizome in an open glass container. The rhizome requires good air circulation and you should dampen the cheesecloth and rewrap the rhizome. This procedure should be repeated every 2-3 days. You can grate the wasabi rhizome on a Japanese sharkskin grater or simply just use a micro-grater or even the lower part of a cheese grater. This grating approach will provide a delicious wasabi paste. During the grating process, the rhizome cell walls break down to release the wasabi kick which generates a fresh, pungent, zingy hot flavour. The freshly frozen wasabi rhizome can be stored for up to 5 days. It is best to use the wasabi rhizome within 2 days on receipt in order to maintain its optimum favour! Wasabi is known as 'King of Herbs' and adds a distinct flavour and unusual pale green colour to food. It is particularly prevalent in Japanese cuisine. Interestingly wasabi - although hot in flavour - is refreshing in the aftertaste. Wasabi cultivation in Japan has continued for over a thousand years. Wasabi is a member of the Brassicaceae (Cruciferae) family of crops which mainly consist of brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, watercress, bok choy, horseradish and the seeds of black mustard. Wasabi has a distinctive heat component which quickly dissipates in the mouth, leaving an extremely pleasant and mild sweet vegetable taste - with no burning sensation or unpleasant aftertaste. Wasabi adds an aesthetic and culinary appeal to various foodstuffs and is particularly popular in Japan. Today, real fresh wasabi is finding widespread use in Western cuisine especially with its ability to convert an ordinary dish to an extra special one with a unique flavour and compelling taste.
