How to Make Salt-Preserved Sakura Blossoms

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 17 steps you must follow to make Salt-Preserved Sakura Blossoms in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Choose double flowered cherry blossoms that have bloomed about 70%. Use flowers that haven't bloomed completely yet. Pick them off the trees from the base of the stems.
  • Step 2
  • Wash the flowers. Separate the clumps of flowers apart so that each portion has about 2 blossoms connected by their stems, like cherries.
  • Step 3
  • Coat with salt gently on the palms of your hands, so as not to damage the blossoms.
  • Step 4
  • Mist the flowers with water, wrap with cling film, and place on a weight about 2 times the total mass of the flowers. Wait at least 2 days. This will help draw any excess moisture and harshness from the flowers.
  • Step 5
  • You're on the right track if your flowers start releasing moisture. Take out the flowers and gently wipe dry with paper towels, etc. (don't wring them out, just press them dry between sheets of paper towels).
  • Step 6
  • Return the blossoms from Step 5 into the container, add the rice vinegar, place a weight on top and leave the flavors to settle in for at least 2 days. After a while, the flowers will turn a bright pink.
  • Step 7
  • Once enough of the color has been extracted, remove the flowers, and pat dry with paper towels... Give one a try. They're so tasty.
  • Step 8
  • Coat with salt.
  • Step 9
  • Pack in tupperware or storage containers.
  • Step 10
  • This is the vinegar that became infused with the sakura during Step 6. It's so vibrantly colored and beautiful. I couldn't let it go to waste, so I used it in the sakura sushi above.
  • Step 11
  • It's great to enjoy as a tea.
  • Step 12
  • "Salted Sakura Ice Cream"
  • Step 13
  • It's great used in preserves...
  • Step 14
  • Or try it in jello desserts!
  • Step 15
  • "Fluffy Sweet Bread Rolls"
  • Step 16
  • "Cheese & Bacon Pão de Queijo"
  • Step 17
  • "Simply Microwave Steamed Bread for Steamed Dorayaki"
