Plum Liqueur

Inspired by my friend joan, and a bunch of plums from my CSA, I have started up a batch of umeshu. Well, sort of umeshu, since these aren’t green plums, and since I couldn’t get rock sugar, I used evaporated cane juice. Oh well. Here is a picture of the jar of 1000g of plums, 1000g of sugar, and about 1.8L of shochu right after it was put together:

I need to keep shaking it daily for the next couple of weeks, and then let it rest for about 6 months before it will be ready to drink. Expect another post then!
