EDEN Ume Plum Vinegar is the treasured by-product of the pickling of umeboshi plums; the liquid brine left over after pickling the plums. In Japan it is known as 'ume su' that means plum vinegar. This salty, tangy, ruby red vinegar is delicious sprinkled over cooked vegetables (especially members of the cabbage family). It adds zing to salad dressings and dips, and is great for making other pickled or preserved foods. When substituting ume plum vinegar for another vinegar, reduce substantially or eliminate the salt in the recipe.
EDEN Ume Plum Vinegar is rich in organic acids. It has 4.3 percent acidity. While the natural red color of EDEN Ume Plum Vinegar is due to the red shiso leaves, commercial manufacturers of umeboshi plums and vinegar use chemical dyes to impart the red color that is characteristic of these products. EDEN Ume Plum Vinegar contains no chemicals, dyes, preservatives or additives.
