Umeboshi, salt-pickled plums (apricots, technically) are a staple of Japanese cuisine. Eaten as a side dish, a palate cleanser, or the star of a simple snack like onigiri, umeboshi are super tart and salty with a cherry-like fruitiness.
The Fukami family crafts these umeboshi using organic Nanko plums - the highest regarded variety for umeboshi - as well as organic red shiso from Wakayama and sea salt from Hyogo prefecture.
