Directions

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