Dictionary Friday: Yuzu

(courtesy of the Epicurious dictionary).

A sour Japanese citrus fruit, which is used almost exclusively for its aromatic rind. The rind of the yuzu (which is about the size of a tangerine) has an aroma that's distinct from lemons and limes or any other Western citrus fruit. Yuzu rind is used as a garnish or small slivers are added to various dishes to enhance their flavor. It can be found in some Japanese markets.

My addendum? "Also apparently every cheftestant's fave ingredient. So, so trendy."
