To make Ponzu: Score kombu with knife. In nonreactive container, combine kombu, soy sauce and lemon juice; let sit 48 hours. Ponzu will keep up to 1 month in refrigerator.

Those ingredients are transformed through a traditional brewing process—much like making wine or beer—that has remained unchanged for centuries.
