Fukami Organic Umezu
An extract that develops during the process of making umeboshi (salt-cured ume plums), golden-hued umezu boasts a bold, complex melange of flavors in even the smallest drop of the liquid. The condiment is tangy and fruity, with a hit of salt and intense umami base—all of which can add depth to all manner of savory dishes. You can incorporate umezu anywhere anywhere you would a fruity vinegar; plus, there’s no need to add extra salt since the liquid already has a kick of salinity.
Fukami Organic Umeboshi
These potent cured ume plums are hand harvested and barrel-aged for one year with salt and fragrant shiso leaves to develop the stone fruit’s robust flavor. These whole plums have been enjoyed in Japan cuisine for centuries—adding a robust tangy, fruity and salty hit to savory dishes without being too overwhelming. Their slight initial chew leads to a soft texture, while the unique addition of shiso leaves add a rosy-purple color and a second, refreshing layer of fruitiness.
