yuzu fever...


While in Japan, I got a serious case of Yuzu Fever. While I've had yuzu in Japanese dishes before, I had never had fresh yuzu juice...mixed with water or soda and ice, yuzu juice is like the best lemonade I've ever had. It tastes and smells like a really intense, fragrant lemon...with a little something extra I can't quite describe. Now that I am back in LA, I'm determined to find some juice here {which probably only comes in concentrate}...or maybe even grow a little yuzu tree in our backyard?
