Did you have yuzu cha when you were in Japan? You buy what looks like yuzu marmalade and stir a couple of spoonfuls into hot water for a really nice winter drink (also great if you have a cold). Back in the Twin Cities I could get it at Korean markets but there was something about the Japanese yuzu cha that was superior to anything I could find in the States.

My manager's mother had me over for an informal cooking lesson and taught me how to make a miso sauce with green yuzu zest to serve over steamed daikon radish. It was lovely as well.


I am fussy about passion fruit flavored things and to my surprise the Torani passion fruit syrup was really good! I had never thought of using the syrups to make spritzers - what a great way to always have interesting beverages on hand! I'm looking forward to trying other flavors.

Oh My goodness--That looks and sounds delicious! It reminds me of bubble tea--without the Tapioca! One of my favorite treats!
