Pickled myoga

Pickled myoga

Recently I'm experimenting a few new recipes or a few new combinations. Since it's the season of fresh myoga and we love pickled myoga, I decided to try to make some and found a very simple recipe. This recipe is probably impossible to prepare if you don't live in Japan or if you don't have access to some very basic yet not common products, since usually they are homemade. First of all you need 3 or 4 fresh myoga, then you need what I call red "umeboshi juice" but which is in fact called umezu 梅酢 and which is the juice obtained during the making of umeboshi, and the red one is when using red perilla (shiso) to flavor and color the plums. It's a very pink sour and salty liquid with a delicate plum flavor.Once you've got this, then you can prepare pickled myoga. Slice thinly the myoga, put in a jar, add 3 large spoon of umezu. Close the lid, shake well and let sleep for at least 12h. You can keep it for about 4 weeks in the fridge, so you can make much more than just 3 or 4 myoga at a time! Serve as a condiment or a snack.
