So...wish I could've made it, but I was in Lansing. Where did you find the ume?! I'm not having any luck. :<

I think I remember someone saying from one world market near novi. Availability is seasonal, I guess now is the time!

You cannot find ume any more this year. Have to wait till next year. One world get it only once a year, and they call me before put them out to the store. So, I can reserve a lot for this group.
I saw ume at the one world market today, if you hurry to go there, you might be able to get them!
Thanks everyone! I live in Toronto so it's hard to get there, but I'll keep looking. I'm surprised they're around so early!

I just came back from the area in California where they grow them (and artichoke, avocado, and strawberry) and the drought is pretty bad. All the plants are stressed and the blooms are coming early or not at all, unfortunately.

Nice to meet you today, thank you everyone. And I appreciate to hold such a nice party, Inoue-San !
Thank you all for coming today! Enjoy your umeshu after 3 months!! Someone forgot a white bowl behind.
I am running a little late.
You can get shochu at some Krogers, Hiller's, and liquor stores.

None of the Krogers near me sell it, and I called Hillers and they said they don't sell it anymore. Any suggestions?

I got gin this time instead of shochu.
ONe World Market has it. Suzume is the brand, in a frosted bottle. And there's a liquor store just west of there that had it two years ago - they had the kind in the squared off bottle with red and black letters. that has it.
If you can't find it, just use any decent Vodka, like Skyy.
Has anyone been able to locate any shochu? I can't seem to find any anywhere (8 liquor stores, 2 meijers, 2 specialty liquor stores).
I also checked with Hillers, Plum Market, Whole Foods. UTL.
I checked with 24 different places and none of them sell shochu. Novi, Walled Lake, Northville, West Bloomfield, Plymouth. If anyone finds some, please let me know...
We just bought some shochu at hillers on 14 mile and haggerty. They have a lot and couple different brands. It is on the island in front of the seafood counter.. not in the liqueor section
Yeah, someone else just told me they found some there. Not sure why they said otherwise when I called yesterday.
Are we able to make ume juice? The non alcohol version?
This site shows how to make ume juice with vinegar. I can't tell you if it's good since I've never tried before. http://cookpad.com/re...
Since shochu seems to be really hard to find, could you please let me know if we are able to make the non alcohol version?
I always wondered, what is equivalent to ホワイトリカー? Vodka is basically the same? The last time we made アンズ酒 and 梅酒 we bought a few liters of white liquor in Japan and carried it all the way back here.
I will try and bring some extra supplies again in case people forget things!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
