Here in Fukui, the end of the period of the Rainy Season what we call 'baiu' or 'tsuyu' has been announced today ( 8/2 ) at long last. The weather forecast says it'll be sunny these 7 days. I've waited for this day to dry the plums in the sun in midsummer.
There is no mold in the tub this year, and so the plums look so nice. The flavor of the plums will be condenced in the midsummer sunshine for three days. Personally I prefer plums of 3 or 4 years old to the fresh ones because the flavor becomes deeper and milder.
