I got myself some Umepaste a while ago. I only recently gave it a try straight up and I must say the flavour hit me. It's unussual but quite nice.

So my main issue is... How to use it. I can more or less incorporate various things into meals but this one is giving me problems. It's not just salty. It's more or less everything and then some.

I'm not talking only Japanese foods but general anything.

Thanks for any tips.

Re: Umepaste

Ume paste can be used in any recipe that calls for umeboshi. You can use a little bit as onigiri filling, use in salad dressing such as for this onion salad, and so on. You can add it to butter for an interesting sour-salty taste and sauté things in it, etc. Experiment!

Re: Umepaste

May sound a bit odd, but I have seen a number of recipes for vegan cheese that call for ume paste.
