Recipe Yield: Total time: 40 minutes | Makes about 7 1/2 cups
1 piece dashi konbu seaweed (6 to 8 inches long) 5 cups loosely packed dried bonito flakes 8 1/2 cups water, divided

Step 1 Using scissors, make several crosswise cuts in the konbu. This helps to extract the flavor during cooking.

Step 2 Place the konbu and 8 cups of water in a large saucepan and set it aside for 10 minutes. Place the pan over medium heat and cook until the water almost comes to a boil, then pluck out the konbu.

Step 3Keep heating the water to a boil, then remove from the heat. Add one-half cup of cold water. Wait for the liquid to cool a minute or two, then gently add the bonito flakes. Do not stir. When the bonito flakes have settled, about 3 minutes, strain them through a sieve lined with cheesecloth or paper towels. Don't stir the stock because that will cloud the dashi. The dashi should be aromatic and have a light amber color.
