Japanese special pickled plum of "Kishu-Nankoubai"
<< FEATURES & CHARACTERISTICS >>
Umeboshi are purple Japanese plums that have been dried and pickled with sea salt and aged for up to a few years, and have very medicinsal 'alka seltzer' type uses.
In fact there is quite a lot of scientific evidence to support the benefits of eating umeboshi. The sour, alkaline taste stimulates the secretion of saliva and gastric juices, activating the digestive system. The citric acid in the dried fruit also increases metabolism and, more importantly, assists the absorption of calcium in the intestine. The pyric acid in ume fruit enhances liver function and can help break down alcohol in the liver, so it is often recommended to eat umeboshi (and drink a large quantity of tea) as a hangover cure.
In addition, this wizened little fruit also acts as a sterilizer and antibacterial agent. It contains organic acids that can kill bacteria, so an umeboshi is usually included in a bento lunchbox, as a "garnish," to prevent food-poisoning, especially during the summer months when bacterial growth is greatest and hydrochloric acid levels in the stomach are lowest. It is also added to onigiri riceball-fillings to prevent spoilage. Truly a fruit for all seasons!
Umeboshi are made in June, when green, immature plums come onto the market. They are cured in salt for about two weeks, then packed with salted shiso leaves (beefsteak plant) to impart a red color and marinated for a further four weeks. They can either be eaten straight from the jar or sun-dried for a few days, until they resemble an anemic prune.
