Description : Shiso flakes remind of furikake that are usually sprinkled on top of rice. They are made with organic red shiso leaves cultivated in Wakayama. In order to make 45g of shiso flakes, no fewer than 237 shiso leaves are used ! They are mixed with salt and organic ume plum vinegar. Then, the shiso leaves are dried according to a process that best highlights their color and intense flavor.

Flavor : A nice balance between fruity ans salty, with an intense shiso flavor that reminds cranberry and hibiscus. 

Use : You can use the crispy shiso flakes as you would do with furikake : sprinkled on rice or into onigiri. But the possibilities of use are a lot wider ! Why not sprinkle them on cheese or a mozzarella with a trickle of olive oil ? The subtle salty taste of the shiso flakes combined with its intense shiso flavor go well with fish, pastas and pizza. Finally these crispy shiso flakes will give an amazing pep to fruit salads.

Located in Kamitonda, Wakayama Prefecture, Yasashi Umeya produces certified organic plums free of pesticides, artificial fertilizers and additives since 1940. The plums are used all year round for different purposes. Plums harvested in May are sold unaltered or used to make syrup or liquor while plums harvested in June are cleaned in the purest water and buried in a salt based preparation for approximately a year to make umeboshi. Nowadays, the fourth generation of Yasashi Umeya perpetuates traditional methods to cultivate and harvest plums as well produce high quality  umeboshi sold in Japan and all over the world.
