Plum, preserved with sugar, salt, and licorice. Li Hing Mui refers to the fact that the plum seed is included. Li Hing is a popular flavor in the Hawaiian islands, and comes in myriad of varieties, both for plain eating and seasoning other things, from candies to cocktails to cigars. "Wet" Li Hing contains enough water to form its own thick sauce around the preserved plums. The flavoring is available in powdered form for cooking and baking. A syrup form is also used in drinks and desserts such as shave ice.
