Being a huge fan of Japanese Umeboshi, I thought I'd have a go at making my own version of Pickled Plums.
The Plums were cooked in equal amounts of red wine Vinegar and Sugar until just softening. I added some Salt, Peppercorns, and Chilli flakes; then straight into the bottle.
I'll leave them for a week or so before tasting.
I'm not over-confident about them, but if they are even reasonably tasty I shall see them as a success. With so many Plums otherwise going to waste, one can but experiment.
The weather's been so foul here recently, that there really hasn't been much else to do.
