From the Test Kitchen

Umami—sometimes called "the fifth taste"—is an incredibly important part of Japanese cooking. It captures the savory character of many ingredients, including the fermented flavor of miso paste that forms the base for tonight’s soup. To complement the delicate miso, we're simmering the broth with dried lime (a brine-cooked lime allowed to dry in the sun) to add a subtle, refreshing citrus flavor to the broth. Marinated purple daikon radish—a crisp, visually stunning variety—rounds out the flavors in the bowl and serves as a pleasant contrast to delightfully slurpable udon noodles.
