Recipe : Plum Syrup & Juice
This is the time of year when plums are available in large quantities, so why not prepare plum syrup for the coming summer heat?
The general practice is to take the heck out of each plum that is still green, but if you want to take it a little easier and quicker, we recommend making it from frozen yellowed plums. The finished ume syrup can be mixed with water or soda water to make ume juice, with soy milk or black tea, or with honey or vinegar to make ume dressing.

1kg Rock sugar
1. Freeze plums for overnight.
