Spiral Foods Umeboshi Plums 150g

Ume Boshi Plums' are a salty pickled plum that have their origin in China over 3000 years ago. Our plums contain shiso leaves, which is added during pickling to impart a reddish colour and natural flavouring. The ume plant has been part of Japanese culture for centuries. Umeboshi was first brought to Japan around 1500 years ago as a medicine. The effectiveness of Umeboshi has been documented in Chinese medicine books as far back as 3000 years ago.

Umeboshi is used as an ingredient for rice balls or eaten with a bowl of rice. Harvesting of ume plums starts in May, although our plums are picked in June to allow the ume plum to fully ripen. The plums are selected and pickled the same day as they are harvested. The amount of salt is determined by the quality of ume, using intuition and years of experience. Our farmers are true artisans. After pickling with salt, plums are sun dried for 3 days. They are turned frequently to dry both sides evenly. Once dried, the plums are pickled again. This last stage of pickling fine-tunes the plums for optimal taste and aroma. This process is all done by hand.
