Translated from Japanese: It's delicious pumpkin. There’s a lot in the pack. It's good that it's divided into 3 bags. My freezer was filled to the brim, but I was able to share it with my family.

Love them!

Translated from Japanese: They have a gentle sweetness, they’re sweet to the core and really delicious.
When you shortly heat them up in the microwave and put only pon-zu vinegar and soy sauce on them, it turns into a masterpiece!
I’ve been eating them like dried sweet potatoes or sweet roasted chestnuts!
Because I trust these products, I will order again.

Sweet~

Translated from Japanese: From harvesting, storing to processing, I wonder if these are the reasons for the taste. They’re much sweeter than those from supermarkets. Delicious.

Translated from Japanese: I bought a whole pumpkin in the supermarket and cut it with a kitchen knife, but it was troublesome to remove the seeds. I want the nutrients of pumpkins, but until now, I refused to get frozen ones. But because these were labeled organic, I ordered them.
The package size is similar to the ones they sell in supermarkets, so I wish it was easier to differentiate that these are organic.

Translated from Japanese: I’m very thankful because you can’t get organic vegetables from abroad very easily in Japan. Even if you eat them the way they are, they were really delicious.

Certified Organic Japanese Pumpkin Cuts from Hokkaido (1.2kg)

Horizon Farms
ST424

Description

1.2kg (2.6lbs) of certified organic (also Japan certified organic JAS) fresh frozen Japanese pumpkin also known as Japanese winter squash or kabocha from Hokkaido, Japan. Absolutely no added sugars, sodium or refined starches. No use of chemically synthesized fertilizers and pesticides. Strictly controlled and audited this product carries the Japanese certified organic JAS mark. Free of preservatives and artificial additives. Gluten-free and allergen-free. 

A convenient and nutritious addition to your shopping list, the kabocha is organically grown, quick-frozen to preserve flavor and cook up in minutes. Kabocha has a sweet flavor, even sweeter than butternut squash similar in texture and flavor to a pumpkin and sweet potato combined. The rind is edible. In Japan, kabocha is commonly utilized in side dishes and soups, or as a substitute for potato or other squash varieties. Add olive oil and seasoning, then bake in the oven. Otherwise, use the cuts as is, add to a pressure cooker for 15-20 minutes for a soft and creamy texture.

Highly recommended with our organic chicken or beef. The vegetables are lightly pre-cooked, trimmed and ready for cooking. Because these are non-GMO beans the length, thickness, and shape vary and are not the same. You can cut them shorter to your preference. No defrosting prior preparation required. Use straight out of the freezer and cook in boiling water, in the microwave or in the frypan.


About Certified Organic

This product is certified Japan Agricultural Standard Organic (JAS) - both in the country of origin and Japan. Japan has one of the world's strictest organic certification standards. But what does certified organic mean when it comes to fruits and vegetables?

✔ Free of harmful synthetic chemical inputs such as fertilizer, pesticides, antibiotics, food additives, irradiation, and the use of sewage sludge.

✔ Free of genetically modified seeds (non-GMO)

✔ The farmland and soil in use have at least been 3 years free of any chemical treatment before the harvest has been certified as organic.

✔ Organic certifications come with multiple audits or on-site visits a year. Organic producers are rigidly checked and inspected by governmental bodies or certified third parties. Organic certification requires detailed bookkeeping and documentation. This makes organic produce technically 100% traceable from farm to table.

✔ Organic certification standards require a strict separation of non-organic certified produce starting from the farmland, soil, harvesting, processing, export, and even import and storage.

✔ Organic farming is a more sustainable alternative when it comes to food production. The lack of harmful pesticides and a wider variety of plants enhances biodiversity and results in better soil quality and reduced pollution from fertilizer or pesticide run-off.

✔ Organic vegetables and fruits are produced mostly by family-owned farms that own smaller acres of organic land. Although the demand is increasing, organic land does not even make 30% of all farmland in any given country (Japan ranks at the very bottom!). This makes organic farming lucrative and more profitable for farmers and gives them a fair chance to live a sustainable life and support their local communities.

✔ Certified organic in Japan and Australia (as well as in most industrialized countries) is a protected word and the use is legally restricted, meaning that you can be rest assured that Horizon Farms is an officially registered certified organic importer and all organic imported produce has been inspected and verified in the export country as well as in Japan.

It is also important to mention that organic produce is more cost-intensive. Organic farming has lower yields compared to conventional farming and is oftentimes more labor-intensive as well. Additionally, organic certification and auditions require annual fees for producers, exporters, and importers resulting in higher prices for the end consumers.

People who don’t usually like organ meat were able to eat this deliciously

Translated from Japanese: I mixed chopped green onions to make meatballs and put them in a kimchi pot. Thanks to the hearts mixed into the meat, it has a rich flavor, and the meat tastes strong and goes well with the kimchi taste.

I also made a hamburger steak using only this minced meat. We have created a beautiful hamburger that is soft but does not lose its shape. I have a family who doesn’t like organ meat, but they didn't notice it at all when I kept silent that it contained heart, and ate it because it was delicious. By the way, in the case of this hamburger, I felt a slight aftertaste of the heart.

Recommend

I thought this product was very interesting when I first saw it. I know the benefits of eating organ meat, but can't quite get myself to eat it as I didn't grow up enjoying the deep flavors. I fed this to my family wondering if they could tell a difference and they didn't say a thing. I made stuffed peppers with minced onion, garlic, and basil. I would say it gives a sausage like flavor, but we really couldn't tell a huge difference. I recommend this product and I will continue to buy it for my family in place of minced pork for certain recipes.
