Umiboshi is a traditional pickled Japanese apricot characterized by its sourness and subtle sweetness. This neri ume (umiboshi paste) is packaged in a convenient tube form. This paste combines the umeboshi with shiso a classic pairing that you will often find in Japanese Cuisine. The salty and sour ume perfectly balances with the fragrant and mellowing shiso leaf. Kinjirushi uses carefully selected Nanko Ume from Wakayama prefecture which has soft and thick skin. The fruit is carefully strained to maintain its natural flavor and aroma. Add a dollop to dressings, dips and sauces for added tartness.
