Notes :

  • You can find gelatine sheets and plum wine in larger Japanese Supermarkets in the bakery department.
  • Use ice water to soften the gelatine sheet, warm water would dissolve it.
  • Warm the wine with low heat, do not heat it up. If it gets too hot, the alcohol would evaporate.
  • It’s the perfect treat to serve in summertime.
