Help with pickling umeboshi

noahbirnel Jun 8, 2007 06:38 PM

So I'm making umeboshi for the first time, and everything seemed to be working well for the first few weeks, and I just knocked the container over and spilled out most of the pickling liquor.

So I'm thinking what I do now is take the remaining liquid, measure it's specific gravity, make up a salt solution to match, and top up to the previous level. Will this work? Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Thanks for any help anyone can give me.
