Grated wasabi produced in Gifu Prefecture
The fresh green and pungent taste of Wasabi not only adds color to "food" and increases appetite, but also removes the odor of raw fish and prevents food poisoning due to its strong sterilizing power. Wasabi also contains high levels of vitamin C and calcium. Furthermore, it has recently been reported that the pungent taste of Wasabi can prevent blood clots and inhibit the growth of cancer cells.
Grate the Wasabi stalks one by one from the outside with your fingers, and grind the whole stalks with the skin in a circular motion from the base of the stalk using a sharkskin grater. The finer the grating, the more pungent and fragrant the wasabi will be. After grating, beat it with a knife on a cutting board to increase the pungency.
