We were inspired by the Japanese technique and custom of lactically fermenting fruit, such as the famous “umeboshi”. The word “ume” or Japanese apricot is actually a plum (prunnus mume, armeniaca mume) as a literal translation of “dried plum”. Umeboshi is traditionally used to make umeboshi liquor with umeboshi.

In the case of umeboshi, it is a Japanese apricot grown in early summer when it begins to change its color from green to yellowish and preserved through lactic fermentation in salting for several months. They are then dehydrated in the sun and kept semi-dry. It is usually red because it is fermented with red shiso leaves, but it also exists without shiso. The most common way to eat it in Japan is in a cup of bacha tea, desalted in tempura or, most notably, over a bowl of rice (hinomau bento, referring to the Japanese flag). (Hosking, R., 2001)

Lactic fermentation occurs in three phases; At first, anaerobic bacteria such as Klebsiella and Enterobacter act more strongly in fermentation, creating a good acidic environment for the next bacteria. The second phase begins when the environment is too acidic for most bacteria and other Leuconostoc mesenteroides and Leuconostoc spp. they control In the third phase various Lactobacillus ferment any remaining sugars and lower the pH.

These bacteria have the great characteristic of being halophilic, unlike many other microorganisms that die in salty conditions, which is why lactic fermentation is always associated with a percentage of salt, we are always talking about at least 2% – 3% of salt in contact. to the total weight of what will be fermented. In this case, besides generating a selective environment for lactic acid bacteria to live, salt extracts water from the product by osmosis, accelerating fermentation. In the case of “umeboshi” it is traditionally made with 20%-25% salt, but it can be found in the market from 4%.

Traditionally, for this type of fermentation, glass or wooden jars are used, always taking care that the product is completely covered with liquid to prevent the product from coming into direct contact with oxygen, but it has an aerobic fermentation, which is why vacuum bags are being used. (always leaving oxygen) to facilitate handling.

Different percentages of salt were tested: 2%, 3% and 6%, this range was chosen because in the fermented products and previous tests they received a range of salt. Everything is made in a vacuum bag with 85% vacuum.

Tests carried out with higher amounts of salt were too salty for us and most of the specific taste of physalis was hidden behind the intensity of the salt. Tests with smaller amounts of salt have better acceptance. Even so, the first test can be used after soaking and desalting the product, confirming that part of its taste and aroma is lost in this soaking.

We can say that fermented uvilla can be used in the same way as “umeboshi” due to its almost identical acidity and saltiness characteristics, as part of a garnish, sauce, etc., or as a simple snack. In this section, if we distinguish the fermented product from the fermentation liquid extracted from the uvilla, a transparent and salty liquid that can be used as any fermented sauce, enhancing any preparation such as dressings, soups, sauces, marinades, etc.

After several months of development of the fermented product and different organoleptic and consumer tests, we saw that the most accepted was 3% salt, with 80% acceptance in the product acceptance tasting carried out on 100 people, another percentage of salt as 6% and 8% if it is accepted in less quantity, which is the least accepted 12%.
