Fruity, tart, and intensely umami, umesu (or ume plum vinegar) is the salty-sour byproduct of the traditional Japanese ume pickle-making process. An unbelievably versatile condiment, a dash or two transforms everything from simple salad dressings and roasted vegetables to fried eggs. Use a bit in a soup or braise for 'kakushi aji' – a hidden taste.

In tune with the seasons, this vinegar can only be made once a year, coinciding with the harvest and fermentation of the ume plums. Made in small batches using local California fruit and heirloom red shiso leaves for color.

Store in a cool area out of direct sunlight.
