Translated from Japanese: I also grow pumpkins myself, but they disappear when the season is over. So I was looking for something delicious and safe to eat when it’s out of season. This pumpkin is organic and very tasty. It’s soft pumpkin that is delicious even if you boil or fry it.

Translated from Japanese: It was a pumpkin with a gentle sweetness and it was delicious in miso soup. It’s recommended that you don’t boil it for a long time, so that it does not lose its shape, but I boiled it quickly towards the end. I would like to purchase it again!

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.

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.

Delicious, spicy sausages

These sausages have just the right amount of flavor and spice and are very juicy. I have served them to friends and they all love them! They are pretty spicy for kids, though.
I recommend these if you like a bit of spice.

Perfect spiciness!

Translated from Japanese: I cooked them in a frypan and then put them into a lentil stew. Without adding salt to the lentils, I ate it together and the perfect degree of spiciness was amazing.
Because the skin is thick, it’s very elastic, so there might be people who can’t bite through it with their teeth (I took a big bite). But if you properly use a knife and fork, you can eat with no problems. It might be better to cook the sausages on low flame until the skin is slightly burned. I didn’t cook them the way you can see them in the pictures on the website.
I will order again!

Translated from Japanese: Perfect degree of spiciness. For me, the saltiness was a little too much.

The outside is crispy! The inside meaty!

Translated from Japanese: Because of corona, I can’t go out, so I think having a BBQ can be fun. Spicy sausages and beer, there’s no better combination. The outside is crispy, there’s a prickling sound when you bite into them and the inside is juicy. Delicious~! These are big, filling sausages that are perfectly meaty. I want to try country style sausages next!

Translated from Japanese: For those who love meat. The herbs and the Italian flavor are amazing, it made me think “This is awesome!” I might order them again.

Translated from Japanese: The product itself was delicious, but when I boiled it in the bag as recommended, it became full of lye. If you show me how to cook delicious food like the picture, I will give 5 stars.

The scent of herbs is strong

Translated from Japanese: You may feel unsatisfied with the taste and flavor of the artificial sausages you usually eat.
However, this has a natural taste, so I would like to try a dish that makes the most of the taste.
I'm researching how to make it into pot-au-feu or add curry powder to make it look like keema curry.

Translated from Japanese: Extremely (Delicious)! I was really impressed with how delicious the sausages are! The used herb spices worked well and the sausages were juicy and responsive ☆After this, I ordered chicken sausage immediately! I'm looking forward to them ♪

Translated from Japanese: They were spicy and had a rough, wild taste. I boiled them in hot water without taking them out of the bag it came with. I turned off the heat after 30 minutes and then grilled them. It was my first time so I looked up how to cook them.

Y
Y.

Translated from Japanese: These sausages were made from European Austrian pork. They’re thick and filling and the taste is strong.

At any rate, delicious

Translated from Japanese: I love eggs and I usually eat them boiled, fried, and scrambled without much seasoning, but these eggs are delicious! When I boiled the eggs, I inadvertently heated it a little longer, but it was still very delicious.

Fresh! White yolk!??

Translated from Japanese: I was surprised because it was whiter than the ones in the supermarket, but I was convinced by seeing the feed of the chickens.

Light rather than rich
No unpleasant taste and no odor
It’s an egg that you can eat as many as you like.

I forgot the salt and made a fried egg
It’s delicious enough to eat as it is.

Translated from Japanese: I arrived here looking for additive-free bacon.
I took the plunge and bought them all at once and I was surprised at how delicious they were.
It’s currently sold out, but I would like to purchase it again (when they’re back in stock).

Surprisingly delicious

Translated from Japanese: The natural flavor of the pork itself and the smoked flavor are exquisite and really delicious. I received thick slices, but the balance of the spices suit thin slices better.

Translated from Japanese: Delicious! I will buy it again. I will buy it for my friends.
The texture is like ham. It tastes very meaty. The spices are just right.

It has a nice scent of smoke right when you open the package.
