A 2021 Good Food Award Winner!

This syrup's base flavors are red shiso and ume plum. Ume plum flavor is tangy, assertive, and punchy, and has a hint of apricot.

The red color comes from red shiso leaves--the red version of more common green shiso leaves which you often see on sushi. Red Shiso has its own unique aroma--somewhat reminiscent of dark red cherry.

The beautiful red color turns vibrant pink when you add bubbly or plain water. Add the syrup to plain or bubbly water, ratio 1:4, for a virgin drink.

Try a quick and easy Red Shiso Margarita (1:3 Red Shiso Syrup and Tequila Blanco, plus a squeeze of lemon juice). Serve with salt on the rim of the glass.

Yumé Boshi is a small food producer located in Oakland, CA. They make Japanese preserves the way Japanese grandmas used to -- in small batches, using traditional and artisanal methods. They use simple ingredients like sea salt and organic cane sugar and all of our fresh ingredients are locally sourced   -- ume plums, red shiso leaves, etc.                                                                                                          
Yumé doesn’t just make preserves though. They preserve the disappearing art of preserve making using local produce from California orchards.
