Kimino Sparkling Water: Yuzu Japanese Citrus

Yuzu is the most popular citrus flavor in Japan. This variation of canned sparkling water from Kimino contains the juice of an entire yuzu fruit, hand-picked on the island of Shikoku. With just two ingredients and no added sweeteners, it’s refreshing without being sweet.

What Is Yuzu?

Yuzu is a Japanese citrus fruit with an intense floral aroma and the tartness of lime. Yuzu has a unique fragrance that is hard to completely pin down, floral with notes of honey and lemon blossom are some ways to describe it. Once you try it, you will never want to go back to basic lemon ever again.

How Do You Cook With Yuzu?

Yuzu is a key ingredient in ponzu, a sauce of yuzu juice and soy sauce, and yuzu kosho, a spicy blend of chilies, zest, and salt. In cooking, yuzu juice is used to brighten up a dish with its acidity. The zest is applied as an accent to cooked vegetables, hot pots, custards, and fish, and is sometimes used to infuse miso or tea leaves. Yuzu also makes a common addition to dressings, sauces, marinades, and even cocktails. A little of the juice and zest packs quite a flavor punch.
