DIRECTIONS

  • Clean and remove stems from plums. Individually dry them with a sterile cloth.
  • Layer the plums with rock sugar into a large, non reactive container (glass jars?), and pour the soju over them.
  • Seal well and store the jars in a cool dark place for 3 or more months. After 3 months it can be drunk, but it's better the longer you keep it.
