Clearspring Launches Five New Organic Condiments

By 17 April 2024No Comments

Authentic Japanese and organic fine foods specialist Clearspring has added five delicious new condiments to its offering: Organic Shichimi, Organic Irigoma Whole Sesame and Black Sesame, and Organic Gomashio Whole Sesame and Black Sesame flavour.

All five condiments are traditional culinary staples in almost every Japanese kitchen. Clearspring Organic Shichimi, or shichi (seven) mi (flavours) which is also known by some as ‘Japanese seven spice’, is one of, if not the only organic Shichimi products in the UK and brings together the perfect balance of seven different ingredients. It contains both black sesame and whole sesame seeds, which have been toasted to bring out their natural flavour, then mixed with a masterful blend of the other ingredients including chilli, black pepper, nori and orange peel. The chilli is beautifully complemented by refreshing aromatic citrus notes and the complex umami rich twist of sesame and nori.

Clearspring’s Organic Shichimi’s powerful flavour is matched by its versatility. It is perfect for adding a depth of flavour to a wide variety of meals including noodle dishes, tofu as well as for BBQs. It can be added as an ingredient while cooking, or simply sprinkled over your finished meal as a garnish.

Clearspring Organic Irigoma or toasted (iri) sesame seeds (goma), is made using whole organic sesame seeds which have been lightly toasted to bring out their natural flavour. Gomashio or sesame seeds (goma) with salt (shio) is made using lightly toasted sesame seeds which are gently ground to given them a softer texture before being blended with a flavourful natural sea salt. Gomashio is also a popular ingredient used in the Marcrobiotic diet, which is based around principles of Zen Buddhism and achieving a Yin and Yang balance from life including the foods you eat – with the sesame seeds in Gomashio offering a natural balance to the sea salt.

Clearspring Organic Irigoma and Gomashio are incredibly versatile and are perfect for adding a depth of flavour and flourish to anything from rice, pasta and vegetables to soups and salads. The Black Sesame varieties have a slightly stronger and more robust flavour compared to Whole Sesame seeds.

All of the new Clearspring Organic Condiments are produced in small batches to ensure that the taste and quality is perfect every time.

Maria Dawson, Managing Director at Clearspring said: “We are very excited to share our new and exciting range of organic condiments, which are as
flavourful as they are versatile. They are a kitchen cupboard and dining table essential for consumers who love the unique flavour of sesame seeds with our premium quality Irigoma and Gomashio helping to add a signature finish to so many Japanese, Asian and international dishes. Our Organic Shichimi is a perfect for people who love complex flavours and adding a bit of heat to their cooking.”

“You can use all of our condiments as a cooking ingredient or as a sprinkle on your favourite meals. We are proud that the new Organic Condiments range is 100% organic and made using only the finest quality ingredients, without the use of any artificial ingredients, additives or preservatives.”
