Maesil – Japanese Plums


Japanese plums are smaller and harder than regular plums.

These green plums are very fragrant and are often used to make a sweet wine but can also be pickled in salt and sugar.

Recently, they have been added to soybean paste (doenjang) and red chili pepper in some types of seasoning pastes and marinades.
