    • Thanks Stephen, good call. It’s about 5 Tbsp, so it’s little bit more than 1/4 cup. I’ll update the recipe. Thank you for noticing the mistake!

    Can ponzu sauce be stored, or does it have to be used immediately? If it can be stored, for how long in what kind of conditions (e.g., fridge for up to a day, frozen up to a year)? Thank you!

    • Hi JJ! Since water is not included, it should be able to be kept for up to a month or so in the refrigerator. Thank you, and the recipe is updated.

    I actually have a list of all the ingredients that goes into Pappadeaux’s Ponzu sauce, just not the specific portions and this list here is not even close…

    • Hi Bobby! I’m not sure how authentic Pappadeaux’s Ponzu is, but in Japan, ponzu usually consists of very simple ingredients – soy sauce, citrus called sudachi (or dai dai), mirin, katsuobushi, and kombu.
