Umeboshi is Japanese for salt pickled plum (or ume). Umeboshi has been a beloved part of the Japanese diet for centuries, prized for their preservative qualities and health benefits as well as their distinctive mouth-puckering sourness and salty tang. Ume contain the highest concentration of citric acid of any fruit, and even a small one contains anything from two to three times as much citric acid as a lemon. Its tastes after pickling offers a much more complex flavor than lemon. In ancient Japan, people umeboshi as medicine to ward off cold.
