Yuzu: the Japanese lemon !
This paste is made with Yuzu, an East Asian citrus fruit similar to a small lime. It was introduced to Japan during the Tang dynasty in around 700. It is harvested in October in Koshi prefecture in Japan and is yellow or green depending on its ripeness. It tastes like mandarin or grapefruit.
You can use yuzu fresh, or use its juice, its zest, ground or as pearls.
