Flavour of the Week - Yuzu

Yuzu is a Japanese citrus fruit that has a flavour that is almost half lemon and half lime but still with a light almost floral tinge to it. It still remains fairly bitter and citrus but also a touch sweet.

The flavour it self can be quite overpowering and often proves hard to balance with it's surroundings.

The fruit originates from East Asia and it is generally believed to be a cross of mandarin and ichang papeda.
