powder is derived from the wasabi root which is
indigenous to Japan. The light gray powder, when
mixed with equal parts warm water, changes to a
bright green paste after about fifteen minutes.
Wasabi, regardless of it's form, has
a very powerful aroma and flavor like that of horseradish.
Mix it in any savory dish or vegetable. If you like
hot horseradish, you are going to love wasabi!
