Umeshu, or plum wine, is a popular sweet and sour Japanese liquor. In spring, the Japanese make homemade umeshu. They let unripe and green ume, sugar rocks, and white liquor steep in red lidded glass containers.
Despite only taking 15 minutes to prepare, due to the fermentation process, one has to wait at least a year to enjoy the umeshu. As they say, the fruits of labor are the sweetest of all pleasures.
