You don’t need to throw plums that have small damage

When you make “Umeboshi”, you can’t use damaged plum because mold will appear in the damaged area.

So when you are making umeboshi, if you find damaged plum, I recommend you to try and make “Plum pickled in Soy sauce” instead.

Then you don’t need to throw the precious plum anymore.
