Japanese cuisine doesn't use lots of condiments or spices, so both Japanese chefs and diners have become extremely sophisticated when it comes to appreciating subtle differences in flavor. Variations in spiciness, sourness, or saltiness that would go unnoticed for the average Westerner are considered by the Japanese as obvious as black and white, so it really isn't surprising that someone would come up with salts made at different times of the year – like the Za You Zen Four Seasons Salt Spring Flower!
Made by a master salt craftsperson (yes, there are all kinds of craftspeople in Japan), the Za You Zen Four Seasons Salt Spring Flower has been created from salt collected in Yuya Bay in Yamaguchi Prefecture. The area is known for its quality salt, but this is especially so during the spring, when the seaweeds are at their fullest and their aroma permeates into the salt to generate unique flavors. Just a pinch from the amazing salt in this 140 g (4.9 oz) pack will make a gourmet dish out of even simple boiled vegetables!
