DIRECTIONS

  • Cook the rice.
  • Keep it warm, but let it cool enough so that it won't burn your hands.
  • Cut each nori sheet into 9 strips.
  • Wet your hands and sprinkle them with salt to prevent the rice from sticking to them.
  • Mold a handful of rice into a triangular shape with an indentation in the middle.
  • Press a piece of umeboshi into the indentation you left.
  • Wrap the rice and umeboshi in Nori strips.
  • Serve immediately or save for later.
