A finer umeboshi you cannot find! These umeboshi pickled plums have been gently hand-picked, one by one, then carefully dried and pickled until they have a dense, chewy texture and sharply sour, refreshing flavour. A definite treat for lovers of sour flavours, these umeboshi can be enjoyed on rice or as a snack on their own, preferably with an ice cold beer.

ITEM ID: #6353

Background

Umeboshi are a popular snack food and rice ball filling in Japan. Their flavour is an interesting combination of sour and salty, as they contain both high levels of citric acid and salt. Indeed, the combination of salt and organic acids often meant that umeboshi would eat through plain aluminium lunch boxes commonly used in the 1960s!
