Taste and usage
Majii Leaves® is the Koppert Cress brand name for an edible leaf. The natural capacity of storing moisture allows a chef to ‘upload’ various flavours to the Majii Leaf. Combine Majii Leaves with langoustine and green grapes, or with sour ingredients such as rhubarb. For the best taste combination, balance the Majii Leaves with sweet ingredients.
