How to Make Our Family's Umeshu

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 9 steps you must follow to make Our Family's Umeshu in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Wash the jar you'll be using to make the umeshu, and sterilize it in boiling water (dry it well afterwards) or sterilize with alcohol.
  • Step 2
  • Choose green ume plums, and throw out any that are blemished. Wash them well (gently so that you don't damage) and drain into a colander.
  • Step 3
  • Take the stem ends off carefully. After removing the stem ends, wipe each ume fruit gently with paper towels.
  • Step 4
  • Make several holes in the surface of the ume plums with a bamboo skewer so that the skins won't get wrinkled.
  • Step 5
  • Put the ume plums, crystal rock sugar, distilled alcohol in the jar in that order. Put the lid on and you're done Shake it occasionally and wait for at least 3 months.
  • Step 6
  • I used this food grade alcohol spray this time.
  • Step 7
  • From left to right: 2 year old umeshu; 1 year old umeshu; and this year's batch The matured umeshu has turned an amber color.
  • Step 8
  • Since the ume plum surfaces are piereced, even after 2 years they are almost wrinkle free You can eat the plums in the liquor even after 2 years of course.
  • Step 9
  • I leave the ume plums in the liquor for about 3 years. After that I turn it into jam.
