*I rate recipes on a Yum! system. I write in my cookbooks one to three “yums” next to each recipe depending on how well I like the dish.

Yum! = OK. Not bad, but probably wouldn’t make again.
Yum! Yum! = Pretty good. Probably will try again, maybe with modifications.
Yum! Yum! Yum! = Great. Will definitely make again.

This recipe easily rates three yums. I used cooked brown rice instead of uncooked white rice. Also, I only used one tablespoon of the umeboshi vinegar. It’s a salty vinegar, so use sparingly.
