This Japanese condiment, spicy-salty citrus is still unknown to many will change the way you enjoy your food forever. Yuzukosho (柚子胡椒) is by far my favorite Japanese condiment or seasoning, better than wasabi and Japanese mayonnaise. It’s found in Kochi prefecture on Shikoku Island and I traveled there to see it farmed and made at the factory.
Yuzu is harvest in November to December and taken to processing plants in local areas usually run by coop JA. The JA Kochi Reihoku Yuzu Processing Plant is where I filmed and enjoyed trying all the products they make there. Yuzu is a very versatile fruit.
