$ 24.00

Umeboshi is a fermented raw food

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 Oindo Umeboshi Plums are handcrafted at the Oindo Family farm in Japan’s rural Nara Prefecture. The Oindos grow their plums on rich, volcanic soil farmed by their ancestors since the fourteenth century.

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.
