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.

With broccoli

Translated from Japanese: After thawing, I put it straight out of the bag in the frying pan, added vegetables, cooked the meat for 4 minutes, sprinkled a little pepper on top, covered the frying pan with a lid and cooked everything on low heat. After putting half of it on a plate, I enjoyed it with some ketchup! It’s a delicious treat with pumpkin and enoki mushrooms.

Translated from Japanese: The pork is bred without using strange medicine, so you can eat it with confidence.
If possible, it’d be helpful if the minced meat could be made a little finer.

Translated from Japanese: Great for barbecue, spicy and delicious. I cooked them well and removed the fat.
They seem to be too spicy for toddlers. They’re ok for elementary school kids.

Recommended for barbecue

Translated from Japanese: When I cooked both sides firmly on the grill, the oil was equivalent to 6 sheets of kitchen paper. I like grilling well even if the meat gets smaller. A type that firmly contains fat suitable for barbecue
It was delicious.
More suitable for grilling than frying-pan cooking.

I want to order them again

Translated from Japanese: They were delicious. They may not be expensive to other people, but they’re expensive for me. However, I was happy to buy the sausages, which have no preservatives and are safe and delicious, so I'd like to order them again.

Y
Yahoo

Translated from Japanese: They were filling spicy sausages with good spiciness.
I boiled them which gave them a delicious roasted texture. They were juicy, full of flavor and very delicious.
Even those who aren’t good with fat can enjoy these sausages and don’t have to worry about heartburn.
It was a product that I’d like to order again.

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.

Translated from Japanese: I was impressed!!! This item is great. I boiled them in their bag and then cooked them until crispy. My whole family was overjoyed and praised them as "delicious!!" with every bite.
It was my first purchase, but I already made a second order. I'm looking forward to the bacon. There aren't many sausages without additives at supermarkets, so I'm happy I can buy them here.

Love these sausages!

Great thick and juicy sausages for a fulfilling meal! Excellent for Sausage & Mash (Toad in the Hole).. good for kids as not too herby or spicy.

Translated from Japanese: The sausages sold in the streets are full of additives and can’t be bought often, but this product can be eaten with a peace of mind and the taste is perfect.

They're delicious

Translated from Japanese: It's more like eating meat than a sausage.
They're very delicious, but the herbs are a little too strong...
This is the opinion of the whole family of five.....
It has the taste of overseas food.
If you added only a moderate amount of spices and herbs, I’d be thankful.

Safe for children!

Translated from Japanese: When I want to have a BBQ with my family, I was looking for a sausage that even children could eat with no worries.
There are 4 sausages in 1 pack and 2 sausages were eaten by my 4-year-old daughter.
They’re big, the taste is delicious and the price is good. My whole family is very satisfied!
I was delighted to share them with my friends, too!

Translated from Japanese: This bacon is my second purchase. I often use it for soups and small stir-fried foods.
I’m relieved. You can’t eat bacon that is normally sold because it contains various additives, but you can eat here with confidence because all the bacon that is sold here doesn’t contain these things.
I will buy it again ☆

Translated from Japanese: I couldn’t eat a lot of bacon on the market because I didn't like the smell of preservatives.
This meat tasted good and it was a very delicious bacon.
From now on, I’m happy that this bacon can be used for cooking. I would like to order it again.

Very delicious and the cost performance is also good

Translated from Japanese: It arrived quickly after ordering. At this price, I think it’s a unique product with this amount and taste.
It has a lot of meat and the fat is fragrant and delicious. There is more satisfaction with this meat than ordinary bacon.
The taste is not too strong, so you can enjoy the flavor of the ingredients themselves.
During this time of remote work, I just fry this bacon in a frying pan and serve it with white rice.
It's a simple and luxurious lunch. I will continue to purchase it.

Translated from Japanese: I couldn't buy additive-free and salt-free products at the nearest supermarkets, so I bought this product that I had been interested in for a long time. I cooked it in a simple way and it was very delicious! After opening, it finished it at once by using it in soup and to make peperoncino. Since there are shipping costs, I can't feel free to buy it, but I would like to purchase it again next time.

Translated from Japanese: This additive-free bacon is really delicious.
I was surprised that it was so different from the supermarket bacon I had eaten so far.
I will order it many times.
I recommend cooking it until crispy with olive oil ^ ^
