Why not turn the umeboshi that are sleeping in your refrigerator into delicious hoshi ume to use them up?
I had a lot of umeboshi that someone had given to us that were too salty to eat. I wanted to eat slightly sweet, vanilla scented hoshi ume like that ones you can buy, so I made these.
Pancake syrup often has added aromas, so they will be transferred to the umeboshi. The marinating syrup is sweet-sour and slightly salty and delicious, so I am contemplating how to use it too.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
