Ume boshi - best uses

We love oils and vinegars in our house and I came cross this previously, to us, unknown vinegar which apparetluy is made with plums - and salt, lots and lots of salt. The label itself notes that it is salty and to use less salt in dishes with this product. I made a viniagrette with it and added no salt at all. Again, info on the bottle suggests it is a good vinegar in such a dressing. The result was a salty, awful mess that got immeidiately thrown away. We could taste nothng BUT salt. I assume it can work well in something, but I have no clue what. The idea of a plum taste attracts me, but geez, if it is nothing but a salt substitue, what is the point!
