I also wanted to tell you about their gu-iri ra-yu. As you know, I've also tried making gu-iri ra-yu from scratch, I should also tell you that it is also called "taberu ra-yu". "Taberu" means to eat.
I'm not so sure why they call it this, I mean, isn't all ra-yu edible?! I think it could be because it is "chunky" so you need to chew it...
The green label is a blend of maguro (tuna) and takana (Japanese mustard cabbage), the blue label is their "plain" and their red label is a blend with a lot of shoga (ginger).
The green label is perfect for fried rice.
Just saute your veggies and rice in some oil add a scrambled egg, then add the ra-yu to your liking.
The red label is nice on tofu, lots of ginger flavor. I think this may be nice on fish too.
We've had the blue label as a "mabo tofu" but I really like it on crispy gyoza.
None of these are really spicy, but they are all still very delicious.
