  • 320 grams Coarse salt
  • 200 ml White liquor

How to Make Sodium-Reduced Umeboshi

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 11 steps you must follow to make Sodium-Reduced Umeboshi in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Select only the unblemished fruit from the ripe ume plums you have, and wash them in water. There's no need to soak the plums to remove their bitterness. Unripe ume plums should not be used, since they won't become soft.
  • Step 2
  • Wipe each washed plum one by one carefully using paper towels. Pry out the stem ends with a bamboo skewer.
  • Step 3
  • Measure the ume plums, and then measure out 8% of their weight in coarse salt.
  • Step 4
  • Put the ume plums from Step 2 into brand new poly bags, and sprinkle them with the coarse salt. Sprinkle in the white liquor too. Close up the bags with elastic bands while expressing the air out of them.
  • Step 5
  • Put the filled bags from Step 4 in a large tub (a packing box is fine). Put plates or pot lids on them, and add light weights (1 to 2 kg). Unopening salt or sugar boxes are convenient weights.
  • Step 6
  • Put the container in a place where you can take a look at it frequently until a lot of liquid (ume-su) comes out of the ume plums. Once the liquid comes out, lighten the weights so that the plums don't get crushed.
  • Step 7
  • When the plums are completely immersed in the liquid, you don't need to weight them down anymore. Leave the bags as is in the container until the rainy season has ended (after June).
  • Step 8
  • When the rainy season has ended, dry the umeboshi in a sunny place for 3 days. You can put the plums back in the liquid if you like, but since they are soft and juicy anyway, I just took them inside.
  • Step 9
  • Don't let the umeboshi become wet! Watch out for sudden rains or evening thunderstorms.
  • Step 10
  • Done!
  • Step 11
  • I used these large ziplock bags, to make 1.5 kg batches of umeboshi. They will exude a lot of liquid (ume-su) in 2 to 3 days. Line them up with the zip side up in a packing box. Take the weights off once the plums are immersed in liquid.
