Why I Love This Recipe

An important base stock for many Japanese recipes.


Ingredients You'll Need

8½ cups water
1 6-inch piece kombu (dried kelp)
1 cup dried bonito flakes


Directions

Clean kombu by wiping it lightly with a damp cloth.


Using a sharp knife, mark an X on the kombu.


In a large saucepan, combine the water and kombu. Let the kelp soak overnight or for at least one hour.


Bring to a boil. Remove and discard kombu.


Remove saucepan from heat and add bonito flakes. Cover pan and let stand for 5 minutes.


Line a sieve with a cheesecloth and strain stock into a large bowl.


Use dashi immediately or cool and store refrigerated for up to one week.
