Ume, a Japanese plum is dried and preserved in an artisanal process. This fruit, more like an apricot has a luscious sweet-tart flavor.
Use as mixer for cocktails, in shrubs on shaved ice or granita, drizzled on fresh cut fruit, in a marinade for shrimp, salmon or chicken and to make a vinaigrette. Try it with cheese plates and more!
Pairs well with citrus oils: Lemon, Blood Orange or Persian Lime, Japanese Toasted Sesame Oil, Garlic and Basil Olive Oil and
of course any mild Ultra Premium extra virgin olive oil
