I pickled plums

2019/07/04

I pickled plums.

Since I harvested the garden plums (called‐ koume), I made plum pickles.

Plum is a food that has been popular as preserved food in Japan from ancient times.

Plums harvested in June can be eaten throughout the year as Umeboshi, plum pickles, plum juice and plum wine.

This time, I tried to pickled sugar-base plum which my grandmother made every year.

I harvested plums and soak it in water.

mix salt and soak in water again

After draining the water well, I put it in a bottle with candy, vinegar and shiso(Japanese basil).

It will be eaten in about a week.

Too much deliciousness, I can't stop eating plum pickled!
