Mitoku Umeboshi Paste Puree of Salt Pickle Plum
Mitoku Umeboshi Paste Puree, or Japanese pickled plums, are the jewels in the crown of Japan’s pickling tradition. Although there are several natural producers of pickled plums in Japan, few use the year long traditional process of Mitoku’s supplier. The Sogawa family, and fewer, still use organically grown plums and high quality sea salt. In fact, the umeboshi found in many Oriental food stores are made in just a few weeks using red dye, organic acids, and commercial salt. To be sure that you are buying the finest quality pickled plums, check the ingredients on the label.
