Store unopened yuzu juice in a cool, dark cupboard. After opening, the bottle should be kept in your refrigerator.Shelf Life:
Up to one year unopened, four months opened.
Yuzu juice is very strong and acidic, so a little goes a long way. It can be used similarly to or as a substitute for lemon juice (with the quantity balanced to taste) in most recipes. Try adding it to ice creams, sorbets, tea (hot or iced), gin or vodka cocktails, ceviche, sauces, vinaigrettes
(try a 5 to 1 olive oil to yuzu juice ratio), other salad dressings, pound cakes & other baked goods. Alternatively, you can simply mix some with honey and water (either hot or cold) for a delicious lemonade-like beverage.
Flavors that work well with Yuzu juice include matsutake mushrooms
, sushi/sashimi (particularly tuna and scallops
), tofu, honey
, miso paste, soy sauces (tamari soy sauce or white soy sauce) & mangoes.
