Discovering Umeboshi Plum

Umeboshi plum comes from a tree related to those of the apricot and plum family. The fruit of this tree is a Japanese plum called "ume". This plum is not consumed raw but only cooked, in the form of jam, candy, or syrup. It is also used to make umeshu, a very fruity and sweet Japanese liqueur.

It is also pickled in brine or dried.

Sesame Seeds in History

Sesame seeds originated in the East Indies. 3,000 years before Christ, the Chinese used sesame seeds as ink by transforming them into oil and then burning this oil to produce a black color. Over time, sesame seeds have traveled the world to finally be used in kitchens in the form of oil, pastes, plain or flavored seeds.
