Full Shipping Details
Shibazuke is an essential pickle of Kyoto, Japan. Legend has it that in the 8th century, the people of Ohara wanted to make something special for a young and lonely empress, who’d lost her entire family in the clan battle of Dan no Ura. They came up with this lacto-fermented specialty pickled in plum vinegar. Naturally colored purple—the color of nobility—it includes a mix of eggplant, cucumber, shiso leaves and ginger. Intensely salty and only slightly sour, shibazuke is delicious enjoyed over a bowl of simple steamed rice, perhaps with a bit of hot tea poured on top.
