Ume Plum Vinegar

 If you check your local health food store or even Asian grocery, you'll find something called Ume Plum Vinegar. It's flavor is undescribable and delicious. I used to have Brussels with salt and butter, but since I tried
them with this vinegar, I won't have them any other way!! Christine
