Has anyone else seen this? http://cookingissues.wordpress.com/2010/01/19/umami-nation-kombu-dashi-s...

It's a blog I find really interesting (because I'm a geek), and I've been able to try out a few of their techniques using old equipment rescued from work. I haven't tried this dashi thing yet, but I've made "roast" beef sous vide* and it was stunningly good.

*Vacuum packed, submerged in a 55°C waterbath for a few hours, then quickly seared on the outside before eating.

Re: Long cooked dashi

Well it would be nice to have a sous vide thingie to test out that theory, I'm sure... :P

Seriously....I prefer the refrigerator method myself because it's so convenient, doesn't spoil, etc. (Put konbu and katsuobushi in a big glass jug, fill with water, leave in fridge, use up within about a week)
