Summer Grilled Corn with Umeboshi Plum Spread

Summer Grilled Corn with Umeboshi Plum Spread

As we celebrate the joys of summer, grilling becomes a beloved pastime, and corn on the cob takes center stage in our barbecue feasts. Elevate your grilled corn experience with a delightful umeboshi plum spread, adding an unexpected twist to this classic summer treat.

  • Fresh corn on the cob
  • Umeboshi plum paste 
  • Vegan Butter or Olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Chopped fresh cilantro or parsley (optional, for garnish)


1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. While the grill is heating up, husk the corn and remove any silk threads, leaving the corn cobs intact.

2. Brush the corn cobs with a light coating of melted vegan butter or olive oil. This will help the corn cook evenly and add a rich flavor to the final dish.

3. Place the corn cobs on the hot grill, turning occasionally, until the kernels are lightly charred and tender. This should take about 10-12 minutes, depending on the heat of your grill.

4. Once the corn is grilled to perfection, remove it from the heat and let it cool slightly before handling.

5. Now, it's time to prepare the umeboshi plum spread. Take a few tablespoons of umeboshi plum paste and place it in a small bowl. You can adjust the quantity based on your personal taste preference for the intensity of the umeboshi flavor.

6. Carefully spread the umeboshi paste over each grilled corn cob, ensuring an even coating on all sides. The tangy and savory notes of the umeboshi will harmonize with the sweetness of the grilled corn, creating a delightful balance of flavors.

7. Sprinkle a pinch of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper over the umeboshi-spread corn for an extra burst of seasoning.

8. For an optional finishing touch, garnish the corn with chopped fresh cilantro or parsley. The herbal aroma will complement the umeboshi plum spread and add a touch of freshness to the dish.

9. Serve your grilled corn with umeboshi plum spread immediately, and watch as your guests' faces light up with curiosity and delight at the unique combination of flavors.

Incorporating umeboshi plum spread into your summer grilled corn takes this classic side dish to a whole new level of excitement. The tangy, salty, and slightly sweet flavors of umeboshi blend beautifully with the smoky sweetness of grilled corn, creating a delightful experience for your taste buds. Give this umeboshi-infused grilled corn a try at your next barbecue or outdoor gathering, and watch as it becomes a summer favorite among family and friends. Embrace the versatility of umeboshi and explore the world of creative culinary possibilities it offers for your summertime meals!
