February’s plums are yielding fruit now, so Tracey & I spent the afternoon making ume-shu. Check tomorrow for a how-to video and a recipe.

How about Ume Juice? As much as I love Ume Shu, I make and drink much more Ume Juice each year.
substitute vinegar for the Shouchu.
Here are my photos of making Ume Juice last year…
I love Ume Shu. /me waits for invitation.
Oh…my favorite. My husband’s summer drink is Pimm’s, but mine is umeshu. I have a recipe for it too…but bags of little green plums (apricots, actually isn’t it) aren’t available here (Austin, TX). Looking forward to seeing how yours turns out.
I also make Ume-juice. 2k plumes and 1.2k brown suger(hunny, or suger, or block suger, anything is OK). That’s it. I’m going to get plums today my friend sent. I’ll make it tonight, and we have to wait for 1 month until we will be able to drink it.
