Ume syrup - Week three

No photo this week. Trust me, you don't want one because this week was the week I learned the hard way that when you make ume syrup the top layer must be sugar. unless of course you like your ume syrup with ume that are white and furry...

But, never fear, the draw of ume syrup is too great and the supermarket is still selling ume. I have two more kilos of ume and two more kilos of rock sugar and the jars have been washed VERY well.

Bring on round two.


  1. Heh heh. But ... if you just left the plums in the jar, maybe you could've had mutated fermented ume. 熟れ梅, just like you get 熟れ寿司. Or some such thing. No? :D
