Hangover Tip of the Day: 2/15/14
After too much sake in one of Tokyo’s little nomiya bars, Japanese drinkers eat umeboshi, a pickled, dried ume, which is similar to a plum or apricot. It’s not just a little pickled, though. It’s really, REALLY pickled, to the point of puckering. Some steep it in green tea and then drink the thing to make it less concentrated, but it’s still horrifically sour (even the milder, non-dried version, umezuke, is hard to swallow).
