How to Enjoy Green Plums Without Poisoning Yourself

Green plums are popular in Korea for their supposed medicine-like benefits that help ease stomachaches and prevent food poisoning, but they should be consumed with caution. The fruit can in fact be toxic if prepared improperly.

As the plums are quite sour, they are often prepared as a chutney, pickled or mixed with alcohol -- each of which can unlock the fruit's toxic effect. When the pit comes into contact with alcohol, a harsh carcinogen called ethyl carbamate can be produced. This compound can be found naturally in wine and fermented food but is not frequently associated with plums.
