    A very good basic recipe well worth knowing. When introducing people to umeboshi plums, remind them it is a strong flavor best approached like wasabi. That way I find most people like it whereas if they just dive in, many find it strong and distasteful. This is also a recipe where making it a mixed rice with an accent of other grains or seeds can add visual appeal to the final results.
