I was just reading some umeboshi info on a Japanese food manufacturer's website, actually. Would you believe that some older Japanese people eat a couple pickled plums with tea for breakfast?! Apparently it's one of those miracle foods with lots of health benefits. :)

Don't get me wrong, I LOOOOVE my umeboshi. But I've got to eat it with rice or something to kind of mute the flavor, lol.

My boyfriend hates umeboshi. Fine with me, it means he's not tempted to eat all nigiri I premake and freeze for my lunches. ;)

It's a pickled plum. Pretty small really. If you've seen a bento with a small red dot in the middle of rice, that's an umeboshi. It's quite tasty, just super salty.

And I've been dying to try them since I kept seeing them in Fruits Basket, and some other bento maker's meals.

ok, what's Umeboshi? Maybe I know it, just not the name.

Ok, so I have a confession to make. Last week, I tried my first umeboshi. I had it tucked away into my bento with my rice. When I licked the juice off my fingers from packing it, all I got was sour, but a delicious sort of sour. So when I bit into the little plum at lunch... HELLO! I was not expecting it to be so salty! Wow! Anyway, it's great with rice, but I'd definately not suggest eating it by itself. It might pickle your tongue!
