Plum Vinegar



Plum Vinegar is a Japanese red vinegar with a mild, salty taste and a sour, fruity aroma.

It's not a true vinegar, as there is actually no acetic acid in it. Instead, the acid in it is citric.

Plum Vinegar used to be made from the juices created as a by-product of making Umeboshi. Now, it's made in its own right to meet demand.

It is used as an ingredient in cooking.

Cooking Tips

Cut back on salt in any recipe you use it in.

If you try it in a salad dressing, use another vinegar as the main vinegar, and use a bit of this as flavouring.

Use in small amounts.

Substitutes

Red wine vinegar or brown rice vinegar with some salt or soy sauce added.
