a lot of "Ume"

Last Sunday, I harvested a lot of "ume" fruits in my yard. The amount of them were larger than I expected.

I brought them to my parents and asked them to make "Ume-shu"(梅酒). It is very familiar alcohol-based drink among Japanese people.

Ume-shu? Is it similar to wine? or is it more alcoholic? What colour is it?

Sorry about all the answer but I have became very curious about it.

Thank you very much for your post. Are always very interesting.

Thank you! I like meeting new Japanese foods and drinks. Specially the home-made ones.
