Tangy and salty, umeboshi is a savory plum pickle made of fiercely tart ume plum, colored naturally by red shiso leaves. Yumé Boshi achieves the soft texture, bright tartness, and beautiful red color from authentic traditional methods.
A Japanese meal staple, long regarded as a folk remedy for hangover and morning sickness. Eat it with steamed rice, add to soups and braises, or use it in sauces. Stronger taste than your usual pickle; a little goes a long way!
It's low in calories yet contains a good amount of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber -- giving you the most nutrition bang, not just flavor, for your buck.
Ingredients: ume plums, sea salt, red shiso leaves
Net wt: 4.5 oz (small)
Keep in a cool place, avoid direct sun. Refrigerate after opening.
