How To Enhance the Umami Flavor Naturally!

[fa icon="calendar"] Oct 29, 2016 9:03:32 AM / by Ann Lopez Aziz

Umami is a savoury taste and often described as pleasant or meaty flavor in non-meat products. It can also sometimes be described as a "seafood" taste. While the term is new to us, it's not new to the Japanese, who have used the term to describe the "fifth taste" since the early 1900s. Did you know that sun dried tomatoes have a more intense umami flavor compared to fresh tomatoes because of the aging process?
