September Thai Recipe Update / ImportFood

Hello again and welcome back.  Fresh kaffir lime limes are finally in stock, new harvest just off the tree a few days ago. The peel is loaded with a fragrant citrus oil, and the flavor of the fruit is overwhelming if eaten. A key ingredient in Thai curry paste. 

Our feature Thai recipe for pork leg soup is a family favorite we always make when our kids visit.  A bit time consuming but well worth it.

We also have plenty of items in our Japanese pantry this week.

Thanks for visiting!

Fresh Harvest - Kaffir Limes

Just off the tree, first harvest of the year.  You get 10 fresh limes and we upgrade shipping of all orders to Express 2 Day.

Checkout the fresh limes and recipes we feature using them.

Authentic Thai Recipe: Pork Leg on Rice

This slow-cooked recipe is always served with hard-boiled egg and pickled mustard green. It's a family favorite we make when the kids come home to visit. Many street vendors in Thailand specialize in this and sell out each day no problem.

Try to get a front leg, as the back legs contain more fat and less meat.

Back in Stock: Large Thai Cleaver

Here is a huge cleaver, with a really long blade. Total length is 13 3/4". Blade is 8 1/2" long, and 3 1/4" tall with a wood handle and three brass rivets.

This Thai Cleaver is very sharp. Made in Thailand. The blade is thick stainless steel and the handle is longlasting hardwood firmly attached with brass rivets.
