Cu, pronounced “tsu”, is a condiment from the North of China.
Normally, it is used as dip for dumplings or, with finely sliced
scallion added, for spring rolls. Try adding a bit of honey for extra
sweetness or some finely grated ginger for freshness. Apart from the
traditional uses, cu can be used with steamed fish, for tempura, as a
dressing on salads, or with steamed vegetables.
Cu can keep for several weeks in the refrigerator in a covered container.
