I am making Umeboshi (pickled Japanese plums). I make it every year and have been for many, many years. Once in awhile, a batch goes wrong and grows mold - along with the mold, the liquid gets cloudy and smells bad.

This year, one of my batches is growing something I have never seen before. My daughter wonders if it might be a bacterial clump. The Umeboshi smells good and the liquid is clear. This little guy was floating on the surface (not attached anywhere). I fished it out and its now living in a bowl of Ume juice in the cupboard (trying for cool and dark). The liquid is made by adding 10% salt to ume fruits that have been washed and dried and spritzed with enough vodka to make the salt stick. Essentially, its salty fruit juice.

Any thoughts?
