 Goshen's plum wine is a modified version of Japanese plum wine. Good plum wine is hard to find outside of Japan. Goshen's plum wine is and easy and simple recipe. This recipe takes a year to ferment properly. Goshen's plum wine needs to be stored in a dark cool place for proper fermentation. It is made in a gallon sized glass jar.

Ingredients:

· 2 pounds of green plums

· 1-1 ½ pounds of Rock sugar

· 2 quarts of distilled white liquor (around 30% alcohol)

· 4 tablespoons of honey (The honey is optional twist that makes it Goshen's plum wine and for traditional Japanese plum wine exclude the honey)

· 1 gallon glass jar with tightly sealable lid Directions

Step 1: The first step in Goshen's plum wine is to rinse the green plums carefully in cold water. Then wipe them dry with a paper towels. Then remove the stems (you can use a toothpick). Make sure to have your one gallon jar sterilized. (You can do this by immerse it in bowling water for 15 minutes).

Step 2: The next step in Goshen's plum wine use the one gallon jar and place ¼ of the plums on the bottom of the jar (put 1 tablespoon of honey one each layer of plums). Then cover them with ¼ of the rock sugar and repeat until all of the plums and rock sugar is used. Pour the distilled liquor over the plums and sugar. Then cover the glass jar with the lid tightly.

Step 3: Store the glass jar in a dark cool place. Twice a month, for the first three months shake the jar gently to dissolve the sugar in the liquid.

Step 4: The last step in Goshen's plum wine starts one year after the plum wine is made. Strain the plum wine through a sieve (strainer) lined with tightly woven cotton cloth, funnel the filtered wine into sterilized bottles, and cap them tightly. Refrigerate the drunken plums in a clean glass jar.

Serve plum wine on the rocks (This could be a yearly event and the same glass jar could be used every year.)
