I soaked red shiso leaves on 7/2 and left them in a jar for one month, and dried plums, red shiso leaf, plum vinegar in the sun on 8/4.
Plums/Red shiso grew so well this year and I put a lots of red shiso leaves in plum. The plums color turned nicely bright red.

Just left them outside for 3 days all day long. Turned over plums 1.5 days after.
After 3 days dry in the sun, it’s done. This is plum pickles 2010.
