Two of Japan's most popular flavours combine in this lovely product – the nutty notes of sesame and the fruity, slightly sour flavour of ume plum. In Japan these seeds are used mainly to season rice, and they can also be used to coat the outside of sushi rice rolls, also homemade prawn toasts. They work well with beancurd, and also to garnish noodles and Asian salads. On an everyday level try sprinkling them on yoghurt and porridge, and also to garnish plain vegetables such as broccoli or savoy cabbage for a real lift in flavour. They are ideal as part of a healthy diet, being rich in protein and omega-6 oils, and are highly recommended.
