Umeboshi is made by pickling sour plums in salt and red Shiso.  It is traditionally eaten with rice, but this has been pureed and packaged for versatile use.  Dab a little of this puckery paste into slightly salted cucumbers, radishes, or turnips along with a handful of shaved Katsuobushi for an instant pickle.  Also good, used sparingly, as a flavouring agent for sauces and dressings, especially when combined with raw vegetables, or raw seafood such as shellfish or fish such as Kingfish and Flounder.
