Premium Sansho from Hida, Japan
Hida Sansho PowderOS-02
Surrounded by high mountains in the center of Japan, raised by pure cold air and water – this is “Sansho from Hida” a premium spice from this special area of Japan. Grown in the area at 2,400-ft (800 m) altitude, circled by rivers in 3.2 mi (5 km) radius, it is born with a strong fragrance only sansho from Hida can have. If it is grown in other areas the same rich fragrance cannot be achieved. Through generations they have been choosing excellent trees and protecting them carefully.
The family-run company, Hida Sansho, gather the crop by hand every summer, dry it first in the shade and then in the sun. They value fragrance high, so they grind only the required amount of seeds when an order is received. They make it the old fashioned way with millstone and a special mallet.
Different from red pepper or black pepper, its peculiarity is a fresh fragrance with vivid impression and elegant citrus origin. We recommend sprinkling it on cheese, fish, meat dishes, or use it with olive oil. In Japan, people normally use a moderate quantity of sansho for seasoning oily grilled eel, barbecued chicken, and any other rich taste food to add a refreshing flavor. Sansho is one of the best cooking spices in Japan; it has been used by Japanese people for more than 3,000 years.
Hida Sansho Powder has been loved and used by Nodaiwa, the Michelin 3-starred grilled unagi (eel) restaurant in Tokyo, to accompany their famous grilled eel dishes.
