In the previous article, we asked Yoshie Kamiya, a seasoning sommelier professional, about the appeal of pepper made from yuzu and yellow yuzu.

“The freshly picked yellow yuzu, which is carefully made without pesticides, is very delicious. Yellow yuzu pepper is made by combining yellow ripe and colorful yuzu with yellow pepper. In the cold season, it is made from yuzu. I miss the refreshing scent and the spicy spiciness. I definitely want you to experience making yuzu pepper with the fresh yellow yuzu in November. The scent and taste are different from the blue yuzu yuzu pepper. I’ll do it. “

Now, I will ask Mr. Kamiya how to make yuzu pepper using yellow yuzu and recommended arrangement recipes.

How to make

1. Peel the yuzu

“After peeling it, it’s put in a food processor, so you don’t have to try to peel it well. Yuzu on the market may feel bitter in the peeled white part, but good Yuzu also has a white part. It’s delicious, so use fresh yuzu as much as possible.

Also, if you add the white part, it will have a slightly milder taste. However, if the white part is bitter or you want to make it clean with only the yellow part, peel it off like an apple skin and use only the surface of the skin. “

2. Weigh the yuzu peel and stir with salt.

“Weigh the peeled skin and combine it with the appropriate amount of salt. Like pickles, if the salt content is 20%, the yuzu pepper will not be damaged. If you eat it immediately, the salt will not be familiar and it will be spicy. About 15% is an appropriate amount.

Also, if the salt content of the salt itself is low and the taste is mellow, add a little more. First, combine the skin and salt and stir once with a food processor. “

3. Chop the pepper

“Next, remove the calyx and seeds of the pepper. Hard seeds won’t crush when placed in a food processor, so it’s best to remove them. Put in as soft a part as possible and remove the hard part.

The white cotton inside is full of umami and spiciness, but the pepper is spicy enough with just the fruit. Please adjust the number of peppers according to your taste.

Peppers are an ingredient that is also called a deleterious substance, so care must be taken when handling them.If you rub your eyes or touch the wound with your hands that have pepper ingredients, it will hurt for a while, so be careful.

If you want to make yellow yuzu pepper, you can combine it with yellow pepper to get a beautiful color, but it doesn’t matter if it’s not yellow, green or red. “
