[Our Farm] Golden Maesil Extract

Maesil is Korean Green Plums. It's a healthy fruit that's loaded with minerals and antioxidants, while being low in calories. Koreans like to ferment maesil and use its sweet extract as a substitute for sugar in Korean recipes. Many people also drink it as an iced or hot tea to boost their energy, detoxify blood and improve digestion.

Most brands use unripe maesil (referred to as "cheongmae") to make their extract. Unripe plums have a green peel and produce a dark-green extract that is sweet, tart and tangy. A good reference product is Hong Sang Ri's Maesil Extract.

But this brand - Our Farm - uses ripe maesil ("hwangmae"), which has a yellow, golden peel. The riper the fruit, the more natural sugars. So this extract has a much sweeter, full-bodied taste. It's perfect for mixing with (carbonated) water and making a refreshing iced tea. 

Our Farm grows their plums in a remote, coastal province called Gwangyang. It's grown 100% organically - without any pesticide or chemical fertilizers. The plums are picked in June (instead of May), when they fully ripen and reach their peak golden color.

          How is Maesil Made? 

          Equal parts Maesil and Sugar are packed into an air-tight container and left to age. As the plums ferment, they slowly release their nutrition into its own juices. There is not a single drop of water added. After six months, a natural syrup is made. It can be used right away or left to age for an additional year for deeper flavor.

          Here's a homemade recipe

          Here's a Youtuber named Kimi who makes Maesil Extract & Iced Tea from home.
