It is good, they are pickled plums. Very salty and pickled with shiso leaf.
Here is how they are made.
You will understand the deliciousness of umeboshi when you eat it with rice together.
these are good w rice
I've seen them sold in japan as like a 3-pack for some cheap price idk maybe 100 yen and you can eat them on-the-go as a snack or some bullshit
though I wouldn't dream of doing so.
Speaking of the good partner of rice, it's a raw egg.
Why wouldn't you try them? They're not just salt, and are eaten in combination with things like rice to make the saltiness more bearable. Might as well try it once, not like it could hurt.
Tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, eggplants, etc are all fruits.
That is often eaten for breakfast in Japan.
It put soy sauce on and stir up and mix a raw egg and rice.
I prefer these but there are no recipes.
small plum in salted water, kept pressed in a big pot and stored for a long time
the longer theyre kept the more deflated they are
add chilly powder or chopped ginger if desired
takes 3 months to achieve the degree of deflation pictured, though the chinese confectionnery industry can achieve it in one day
which is why its not healthy to eat those things regularly
also after about a month the liquid makes for great salty and sour juice, though an acquired taste, so if you want to store it separately to drink you can replce it with fresh salted eater
I loved pretty much every new food I tried in Japan except for these shits. These taste like butthole. I had one on some shitty conbini rice and I had to eat around it and all the rice it came in direct contact with because it tasted so bad.
actually scratch that, they're instructions for making plum juice, I got them mixed up.
1. one layer of plums under one layer of salt under one layer of plums, etc, kept in a jar
2. after 3 days pour everything on a flat surface to dry under sunlight for one day, then repeat step 1
3. repeat step 1 and 2 for about 3 times until a thick layer of salt starts to bind on the plums
