Deep ruby red, perfect whole plums impart a delightfully tangy, sweet, salty, sour flavor to almost any dish you can imagine, from soups and beverages to grains, vegetables, sauces, dips and dressings.
Ohsawa Organic Umeboshi Plums are grown in the mountains of Japan on rich volcanic soil.
What is Umeboshi?
Its place in the kitchen is central. Its complex sweet/salty, tart flavor enhances and gives balance to acidic foods. Use umeboshi to replace salt in dressings, spreads and sauces, and to season soups, grains and vegetables. Umeboshi is a fermented raw food that will keep indefinitely at room temperature and inhibit growth of harmful bacteria. Shiso (perilla) contains the bioflavonoid anthocyan, a powerful antioxidant. When combined with tart ume plums, they give umeboshi their red color and serve to ward off harmful organisms.
