      this idea came from one soup I ate while we were on vacation in Central America
      some ideas from friends, some from cookbooks, some from soups I ate at restaurants
      I used my family to have soup everyday and now I have to come up with something new almost every day

    Dear Friend!
    Greetings!
    Great idea! The more for it as watermelon is a very healthy fruit!
    About the Japanese plums used in Umeshu, they are indeed a Japanese variety. They are not edible raw,even ripe, but they are once pickled or marinated as the Japanese found out a long time ago!
    Best regards,
