While we make our best efforts to keep the puree cold when they reach you, we unfortunately cannot guarantee it being frozen, especially during the summer months or if you reside outside of Ontario.
If the puree arrives partially thawed, simply put it back in the freezer to keep its quality intact. In the event that they arrive completely thawed, so long as the inner seal is not broken, they are safe to use. Unused portions can be frozen again for longer term storage.

About Yuzu 柚子 (果皮入)
Yuzu, originally discovered in China and Tibet, made its way to Japan and Korea in the 7th Century. Unlike other citrus fruits, it remained in Asia until the 20th Century, with the exception of limited export to Brazil. Yuzu's popularity in Europe is relatively recent, with its inclusion in dictionaries occurring after 2000. This fruit's mixed fruity and sour taste, reminiscent of grapefruit, mandarin, and lime, has delighted discerning palates. Yuzu's introduction to the West can be credited to renowned chefs and pastry-makers, particularly those with French culinary backgrounds. Today, yuzu is widely used in both savoury and sweet preparations and continues to gain popularity among culinary creators.
