What is Shiso good for?
Shiso leaves may have green, purple or red leaves. They have pointy edges and a prickly texture. The unique taste is somewhat citrusy yet herbaceous. Shiso is not just an ingredient; it is also an important herbal remedy used in Japan for treating various ailments. The herb possesses very strong anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, which help people fight infections and allergies such as arthritis, eczema, and asthma.
The shiso leaves are also a great source of nutrients such as calcium and iron. They do not contain sugars and oils and are a healthy yet delicious addition to stews, soups, salads, and desserts.
How to buy and store Shiso leaves?
If you cannot find shiso leaves at your nearby grocery stores, you may find them easily on several websites. Ideally the leaves should be from an organic store where no pesticides are used on the Shiso plant.
You have to keep the shiso leaves in the crisper of your refrigerator in their clamshell container. You can also freeze Shiso leaves or use store-bought frozen Shiso leaves for this recipe. The texture of Shiso leaves is not a matter of concern as eventually, you have to blend them for making this dessert.
What is Sake?
Sake is a traditional Japanese alcoholic drink made from premium quality rice, purified water, and koji mold. The fermented rice beverage is often sold as Nihonshu. The process involved in sake production yields a clean-tasting, mildly sweet drink. You will notice an astringent feeling accompanied by its typical savory flavor.
Sake has a combination of fruity and nutty scents, similar to a mild wine’s aroma. This aroma disappears a few moments after pouring the drink. Overall the drink is light and smooth, but it may leave you with an aftertaste similar to that of potatoes and mushrooms.
Is Sake similar to vodka?
Sake and vodka have one similarity – they both are alcoholic beverages. Sake is distinguished by its sweet, nutty aroma, whereas vodka has a strong alcoholic flavor.
Sake is made from fermented rice, and it is not a clear spirit. It is just half as strong as vodka or whiskey. Their way of consuming also marks a difference; sake is sipped from small cups, unlike vodka, served in shots.
