ramen and pickles

science, technology, and medicine served up with some tasty noodles

Starting homemade ume pickles

Ume plums from the farmer’s market, with 15% salt by weight. The plums were cleaned with vodka, and any with blemishes were removed, hence those on the dish.  All this to prevent any mold from forming.

Note the improvised pickle press with the glass of water providing the downward pressure.

Soon, with the addition of some red shiso, they will be umeboshi.
