1: What is Dashi (だし)...?

"Dashi"(出汁) is an ingredient that you can't forget when making any Japanese dish. Dashi is a clear soup which is usually made by boiling kombu seaweed, dried sardines, Katsuobushi, and shiitake mushrooms. Dashi can be made by only one ingredient above but tastes even better and more complex when combining more than two ingredients (Awase-dashi). Find your own favorite!

Nowadays, dashi is something we can easily buy at grocery stores. They are sometimes sold in powder forms. (Hondashi powder)

2: How long can you keep your dashi stock?

It depends on what you use as an ingredient but generally, dashi will last for a week refrigerated, a whole month when frozen. Be careful not to keep it outside at room-temperature.

If you are too busy to even boil water, you can make dashi just by seeping the ingredients into the water for a whole night. (Don't forget to take the ingredients out after a day.)
