Unbeatable taste and too moorish for my own good!
Delicious rice cakes, the best I've EVER had
So good to have products with no added sugar. Fresh tasting and a good variety. Bought originally from a farm shop but would order again from the website.
These are very tasty noodles and they stir-fry great if you soak them for only about 8 mins in boiling water not 10 as recommended on the pack. (The longer soaking makes them brittle; I think they're better slightly 'al dente'.) I haven't tried the long 30 min soak in cold water which might well make them come out firmer. It really is the case with these as with other Asian noodles that after softening in hot water they must be rinsed thoroughly in cold to stop them going gummy. They can then be stir-fried or reheated in soups perfectly. They are very good cooked with ribboned vegetables or tossed in hot sesame seeds cooked in sesame oil with a miso-water-and-mirin sauce poured over. My only wish is that they came in bigger packs as we're three in the household.
Highly recommended as a tasty and versatile cooking ingredient. We use a lot of Clearspring rice mirin in sauted and fried meat and veg dishes, as a marinade or added at the end of cooking to boost flavour. Particularly good with salmon, dark-meat chicken, fried tomatoes, mushrooms, cabbage, onion, aubergine and anything which benefits from a slightly sweet, winey flavour. It's really not that acidic so if you're looking for more of a European 'wine' flavour you need to boost it with citrus, vinegar, tomato or whatever. Blends really well with tamari in cooking and as a dipping sauce for dumplings etc. It is a gentle ingredient but a few shakes of the bottle does the job and it goes a surprisingly long way. (That said I would like to see bigger bottles as I end up ordering two or three as part of a large shop and I've run out of things to put in the empties ...)
