A unique and savory blend of Oindo Umeboshi Plums and shiso, pureed together into a smooth paste. Its piquant sweet-sour ume plum flavor is enhanced by bits of flavorful red shiso throughout.
Eliminate the mess of spreading ume paste when making sushi rolls: Simply squeeze a thin line of ume-shiso paste across nori rice and roll it!
This smooth, ruby red puree is a convenient kitchen delight as well as high quality food.
Spread it on sushi rolls, corn-on-the-cob; use it in tofu dips and salad dressings for a wonderfully tart, sweet-sour-salty flavor.
Ohsawa® 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.
