If you have been following my blog for over a year (or even from 2 years ago!?) you may remember my annual umeshu makings - the homemade plum wine. If not, this is what I do every year at the beginning of Summer, in early June when the Japanese fresh plums become available (they are only available at this time of year). The smell of the fresh green plums are so lovely, every year as I go through this habit of making my own umeshu I feel the summer coming so close. I'm looking forward to December when I can finally start drinking it, but to tell you the truth it's best start drinking after one year, if I can wait that long that is though!

Happy July to you all!!

  2. I think it's great that you have this summer tradition of making umeshu.
    what are those opaque crystal-like things you add to the jar? sugar?
    I love umeshu on the rocks so I doubt I could wait until the following year before taking a sip!

  3. That looks so delicious! Umeshu is quite popular in Shanghai. Maybe I'll try making my own this year!

  4. It's very tempting to want to live in a country with colder climate. You get to experience the change of seasons. At least that sounds fun to me, and planting vegetables and stuff. It's way too hot over here in singapore. All I want to do is get the fan blowing in my face while I drink ice tea.. haha
