Pickled Shiso & Umeboshi Furikake, 0.52 oz
Locally grown plum, shiso leaves, and salt are the only ingredients in Kenchanzuke’s Pickled Shiso & Umeboshi Furikake. It’s a Japanese-style savory sprinkle, which features a refreshing umeboshi (pickled plum) and shiso aroma with a touch of sourness and umami from fermentation. Kenchanzuke, tsukemono (Japanese-style pickles) specialty maker in the Izumo region of Shimane Prefecture, knows that fresh, quality vegetables have the power to deliver great flavors even after fermentation, without needing any additives. Kenchanzuke’s fermentation naturally boosts the umami, flavor, and aroma of plum and shiso. These features are even further enhanced by the company’s special methods when processing the pickled plum and shiso into the furikake’s dried flakes. The furikake’s refreshing aroma and flavor perfectly add accents to light dishes. You can also enjoy it by sprinkling it over freshly cooked rice, somen or udon noodles, tofu, and even pasta. A tablespoon of Pickled Shiso & Umeboshi Furikake concentrates the nutrition of 6-8 pieces of umeboshi. You can enjoy these benefits from the furikake as well.
You can enjoy Pickled Shiso & Umeboshi Furikake sprinkled on cooked rice or dusted over onigiri rice balls, just like other traditional furikake. Its refreshing aroma and flavor can add a wonderful kick to dishes like somen or udon noodles, tofu, and even pasta as well. You can also use it as a seasoning for fried rice, stir-fried dishes, salad dressings and dipping sauces. Since it goes well with chicken, pork, and fish, try adding this furikake as you cook them—grilled chicken or pork topped with Pickled Shiso & Umeboshi Furikake is easy to make and scrumptious too.
