Instructions

1
These are ume or maesil, which are green plums! They are used as a sweetener in Korean cooking.
2
Thoroughly wash them, and then use a sharp tool to remove their stubs at the bottom.
3
When you’re done with that, let them dry on a paper towel for a few hours.
4
In a glass container, alternate with layers of white sugar and green plums.
5
This process takes 100 days to complete. For the first couple weeks, you’ll want to open up the container and stir every couple days!
