Product name: Ume Kosho The owner wanted to make a condiment goes well with Kamaboko by using Nanko-ume from Kishu which is a specialty in Wakayama.

By a lot of trials and errors, Ume kosho got many good reputations for taste, “this makes the taste better not only for Kamaboko, but also for other dishes”, and then finally commercialized. Ume kosho can be an accent for dishes with a good combination of the sourness from Ume, and the sharpness from red chili. You can create your own dishes by using Umekosho, a multiple condiment.
