Merchants transported kombu from Hokkaido to various regions, including Kyoto, Osaka, Edo (now Tokyo), Kagoshima, Nagasaki, and Okinawa, using ships known as Kitamae-bune (北前船). To maintain the highest standards, Japan employs a meticulous grading system ranging from 1 to 6 to categorize the quality of the harvested kelp. This dark, olive-coloured kombu is cultivated on ropes off the Japanese coast, harvested and then sun-dried, giving it a white, sea salt residue on the surface which shouldn’t be rinsed off, but gently wiped off with damp kitchen paper.Those without access to mentsuyu can still enjoy its taste by using dashi powder mixed in equal parts with soy sauce and mirin – the result will be close enough to this beloved condiment. There are two primary methods to prepare kombu dashi: Mizu-dashi (soaking in water) and Ni-dashi (boiling in water).

It’s an especially great seasoning for clear broths, as it brings an earthy aroma and savory taste to any recipe.But once the kelp is harvested and dried, these cell walls lose their functionality, allowing the umami-rich glutamic acid to easily dissolve in water. Dried Kombu is perfect for wrapping around fish before popping it on the barbeque, or eating alone sashimi-style. Remember that while these alternatives may provide a similar taste, the results still be different from using real kombu. With its rich umami flavor and convenient format, dashi powder is the ultimate ingredient for soups, sauces, and broths, especially when you want to naturally enhance the flavors of the food you’re about to eat. While various types of kelp can be used for culinary purposes, Rausu kombu, Rishiri kombu, Ma kombu, and Hidaka kombu are renowned for producing superior kombu dashi, a fundamental element of Japanese cuisine.
