DIRECTIONS

  • wipe konbu with a damp cloth then place in a saucepan with 3 cups water & soak for about 1 hour.
  • heat uncovered over medium heat for about 10 minuites removing konbu just before the boiling point so that it retains flavor.
  • if the thickest part of the konbu is still hard return to the pan a few more minuites adding a little water to prevent boiling,reserve the konbu.
  • add 1 oz. of the dried bonito flakes to the pan & bring to a boil(don't stir)& immediately remove from the heat.
  • using a tablespoon or ladle remove the foam from the surface & let stand a few minuites until the dried bonito flakes settles down to the bottom of the pan.
  • strain the liquid lined with muslin & reserve the bonito flakes.
  • this is good for clear soups.
