I have never heard of these granules. Do you find them in your regular supermarket?

Probably not. But most any asian market that has a Japanese section carries them.

Oh well I get to an Asian market maybe once every 2 or 3 years.

I can send you some. I have a ton of it in the pantry. Plus I go to Super 88 or Kam Man very regularly. You can buy miso at Whole Foods.

GB - I've yet to find them in my local markets here in Culpeper, but our local markets are constantly expanding their Asian aisles, & more & more I'm able to find key ingredients. I have a feeling Hon-Dashi won't be far behind.

Any Asian market would definitely have it, & I'm also sure it's available on-line. I've tried a couple of brands, but my hands down favorite is "HON-DASHI - Bonito Fish Soup Stock", distributed by Ajinomoto U.S.A., Inc., of Portland, Oregon 97203, Product of Japan. The quote on the box is that it's "Japan's No. 1 brand seafood soup stock made from dried bonito's essence and other flavorings". Box is white, red, & navy blue. It truly is delicious & makes a fabulous base for any Japanese soup. It's actually been recommended in Japanese cookbooks.

The box contains several envelopes - enough to make LOTS of soup - so one just takes what one needs, then places the opened envelope in a plastic bag & pops it into the fridge, where it lasts pretty much indefinitely.

Definitely worth seeking out. One box will last you a long time

I have exactly what Breezy is describing. I used to buy it in glass jars but the packets are much more practical.

Let me know if you want some.

I'd be happy to mail some to anyone, btw.
