The Clearspring goal is to get organic food back on the dining table, so that you can enjoy the same quality of foods as your grandparents did. By developing the demand for organic foods and encouraging the cultivation of organic crops by farmers today, they can ensure that your grandchildren, too, can enjoy the great taste of good food. You will find that each of their food products has a distinct flavour and quality that comes from using the finest quality ingredients and respecting local food traditions. They always work directly with producers, building long-term partnerships of ethical trade that support sustainable organic farming and benefit local communities. Clearspring Organic Umeboshi are tart, tangy, salt pickled ume plums that have long been a vital part of Japanese cuisine and folk medicine. Small pieces add zest to sushi and rice balls and can be rubbed onto cooked sweetcorn or used in other dishes. Taken alone, umeboshi flesh has been traditionally used as a digestive tonic. Umeboshi are a concentrated food and only a small amount is needed.
