Hah .... found a jar at long last. Taken a few months and lots of blank stares..... And jars of sweet Plum Sauce brought to you. Try going into every Chinese supermarket you come by and asking for chinese sour WHOLE plums pickled in brine, in three different dialects... these are the most fabulous gems. Used for steaming fish Teochew style or cooking your spareribs with a sweet and sour sauce. Without this the dishes just don’t taste the same!!! The chinese ‘Ume’ I guess is as close a description I can use. #happy #sourplum #saltedplum #chinesefood #asianfood #chinesesaltedplums #thelarderat36 #foodphotography #thegfw2021 #igfood #yummy #tasty #foodblog #foodporn #instafood #thefoodwriter #foodphotography #foodblogger #foodporn #foodie #foodgasm #homecook #deliciousness #gfw ...

Life is good. Long hard week with lots of hurdles and hoops. Most have been jumped over or through. Celebrating with hand sliced Jamon Serrano and of course with one of the best Junmai Daiginjo genshu 35% polish Yamadanishiki. Looking forward to this weekend’s IWC sake competition. Bring it on!!! #jamonserrano #sake #thelarderat36 #foodphotography #thegfw2021 #igfood #yummy #tasty #foodblog #foodporn #instafood #thefoodwriter #foodphotography #foodblogger #foodporn #foodie #foodgasm #homecook #deliciousness #gfw @nattynibbles @ereladana @al89188 ...
