How to Make Dashi

Here are the simple directions on how to make dashi.  Note – if you prefer ‘instant’ dashi, you can use hondashi instead, but keep in mind this is essentially MSG.

1) Use the chart below to find the ratio between water and bonito flakes for the amount of dashi.

2) Add water in a stove top pot. Place strainer inside stove top pot and bonito flakes inside strainer. Bring to boil.

3) Once boiling, remove from heat and let it steep for at least 5 minutes.

4) After steeping, remove strainer and discard bonito flakes.

All done!
