Preparing Ume Plums

The chefs of Otowasan Kannonji Temple show us how to prepare ume plums! It's just before the rainy season, which means it's the best time of year to make plum wine and ume miso. Just place the plums in a jar with the necessary ingredients, and wait for the fermentation process to begin. The plums can later be used in a variety of dishes to help get you through the coming summer heat!
