Clearspring Organic Japanese Umeboshi Paste (Salt-pickled Plum Paste) is a tart and tangy seasoning that can be used to enliven sushi, dips, dressings, spreads and sauces.
Kate says, "I love a thin layer of umeboshi paste in a nori wrap, or spread onto crackers. I also often put a teaspoon in a salad dressing. It's salty but super alkalising, and adds a piquant flavour to your dishes."
Ume plums (Prunus mume)* (79%), sea salt (17%), shiso leaves (Perilla frutescens)*

Add a little to the centre of nori wrapped rice balls or to the top of the rice when preparing sushi rolls. Place a thin layer on chunky cucumber rounds to make a cooling summer treat and spread sparingly on cooked sweetcorn as an alternative to butter and salt. Remember to always use umeboshi paste in small quantities as it is concentrated and salty.
