Takanotsume translates to "The Claw of the Hawk" and is a very rare pepper in Japan. Tsujita-san, the president and craftsman of Yamatsu Tsujita Co. Ltd. says, "99 percent of red chili peppers sold in Japan are produced overseas and many of these are species of red chili peppers that cannot be called Takanotsume although they are circulated as such.” Takanotsume peppers are prized for their distinctively rich aroma, flavor and unrivaled spiciness. The peppers in these jars are hand-selected. Enjoy in any way you currently use dried peppers.
