  4. Horseradish last week, wasabi this? You know my style. Mmm, I think I eat sushi just for an excuse for copious amounts of wasabi. It burns so good…

  5. Thank you so much for this. I love wasabi and things flavored with it. I always tell my kids that it is Japanese horseradish but really didn’t know a thing about it. Thanks for this post.

  6. Interesting. Did you know that some have taken to adding wasabi to sweet pastries? I believe Pierre Hermes uses it in a macaron and that some claim that the real stuff is almost flowery?! That alone makes me want to attempt to grow it! I suppose if I had a shaded stream it might grow.

  7. Love wasabi, never thought about growing it myself. I always put too much in my soy sauce and then get that whole teary eyed, nose burning sensation, LOL!

  9. I am not sure about wasabi. I always fear I will be one of those people, you see on the commercials, that taste wasabi and then run out with their hands in the air searching for water lol.

  10. I’ve never even thought what it was before it became that green blob on my sushi plate. I’m afraid it’s not something I indulge in, although my daughter can eat it by the spoonful. 😉

      • Love sushi, but they have to hide any wasabi in so much mayo that no-one else can taste it. I always happily give my wasabi lump to anyone who wants it 😉
