Seasonal Food / Blog Umeboshi Making August 08, 2020 / by Junko The rainy season is over. Now the time to dry our homemade pickled plums (umeboshi) out in the sun ☀️ Umeboshi has a very distinctive sourness and salty tang that makes some people hard to taste them but has been beloved in centuries here in Japan for its great health benefits!! Junko There are so many Japanese dishes and cultures that are not well known outside of Japan and I’m happy to introduce them to you! If you tested any of our recipes feel free to send us a photo and your comments and we will be happy to publish them, even if it wasn't a complete success! :) Seeking the best balance of being free and living a stable life in this busy city, I enjoy kitchen gardening to deepen my connection with nature. Lately, I enjoy traveling to places I’ve never been and dancing Salsa/Kizomba there. Always a traveler at heart. Freelance web/graphic designer. Coffee & chocolate addict.
