Rice add on

Shiso Pickled Plum
This is the salty red plum that you find on some rice dishes. It can be eaten as a accompaniment to rice. It has a tart taste that, in my opinion, is overwhelmed by the pickling salt. The red color comes from the herb called shiso, more correctly, red shiso. A small container will keep in the fridge for approximately 2 months.
