My post in last summer: Umeshu (Japanese plum liquor)
To make umeshu, you need plums (usually 1kg), crystal sugar (I use about 400-500g) and liquor called “white liquor”, which is kind of shocyu (1.8L).
This year, I used brandy instead.
After waiting 3 months, you can taste it finally. Although there are aged umeshu like old whiskey.
I don’t know what is appropriate for this liquor, and chose some natural cheese (I like it very much!) or Japanese pears.
Served in the glass.
Japanese pear. It’s very tasty and sweet in here, but not very known to rest of Japan. A mug(mine) is for size comparison.
