Taste and usage
The seeds have a very strong beechnut taste, which comes back in the young plants of Tahoon Cress.
The taste sticks on your tongue for a long time.
Tahoon Cress does very well in a salad and can even make an Iceberg salad taste uniquely.
We recommend this product to the salad industry as this could be a new ingredient.
The taste is strong enough, making only a minimal amount per kg is enough.
The remarkable beechnut taste makes Tahoon Cress very suitable for refining all kinds of dishes.
After some experimenting, we found the product to go very well with all kinds of cheese, but
goat cheese in particular.
Using it to make ice cream creates a real surprise.
Combing both great ideas, we made ice from goat cheese and decorated it with the Tahoon Cress.
Tahoon Cress is a product harvested at the north side of the Himalayas. In early spring, women
collect the freshly germinating seedlings from under the trees.
The young sprouts are then used in dishes. In local literature it is infoibed as a stimulant
for the stomach.
