Shichimi pepper is one of the spicy seasonings in the family. Generally, seven ingredients such as chili pepper, Japanese pepper, and black sesame are blended, but after all, do you feel that the spiciness of chili pepper is the main and unsatisfactory?
For those who want a higher level of spiciness than just tingling, we recommend "Raw Shichimi, " which uses raw Shichimi ingredients to accentuate the aroma and flavor. It is also sold by major manufacturers such as Momoya and S & B, but this time we will introduce two products, "Kayanosha", which is said to be the "originator of raw Shichimi", and KALDI Coffee Farm.
The raw shichimi of the seasoning brand "Kayanosha" of the Fukuoka Kuhara Honke is a mixture of domestic chili peppers, Japanese pepper, yuzu, and sesame seeds. It's quite pricey at 1,026 yen (tax included, same below) with 60g (2.12oz), but it's still addictive enough to buy repeatedly.
Introduction The scent of yuzu and the spiciness of bright chili peppers. In the mouth, the numbing sensation peculiar to Japanese pepper added with fruit and powder remains, and the fragrance of black sesame that occasionally pops is also an accent. Even if you just scoop it up with the tip of your chopsticks, it will show a surprising change, and it will be a pleasant and lingering taste that has never been seen before.
Basically, like Shichimi, it is used as a condiment for oden, hot pot, simmered dishes, soba, etc., but this goes well with yakiniku, pasta, sashimi, etc.
On the other hand, "Shinshu long-established miso shop raw shichimi" sold by the Japanese food brand "Moheji" of KALDI Coffee Farm is a mixture of green pepper, miso, and yuzu peel from Nagano prefecture. This one has a slightly stronger chili pepper and saltiness, but the sweetness of miso makes the spiciness mellow. Sansho is also an accent, so it seems to be easy to use for cooking as if it were spicy.
Evolutionary spicy seasoning, raw shichimi that cannot be returned to normal shichimi once eaten. Each manufacturer has different ingredients, so please try and compare them to find your favorite!
