Lovely Persimmons

Untitled

This might sound a little funny, but persimmons have long held a special place in my heart. As a young boy, I remember my parents picking up a case of heart-shaped Hachiya persimmons from the Korean grocery store in Toronto every winter just before Christmas. We'd gently check them every morning to see if one had ripened enough to eat. It was a true test of patience because if they weren't ripe enough, halfway down the fruit toward its stem, the flesh would make your lips and mouth pucker from its astringency, caused by a high concentration of tannins. Though I didn't understand the science of it as a child, waiting for full ripening meant allowing the naturally occurring tannins to become inert, leaving incredibly sweet and tender fruit.

How To Make Korean Jello

IMG_1010

Korean jello isn't sweet like most western dessert varieties. But yowsers, does it ever make for a silky smooth and healthy side dish to steaming bowls of rice and soup. To fully appreciate Korean jello, you have to drizzle on a blend of soy sauce, sesame oil, sesame seeds, and green onions. Add a pinch of chilli powder to the mix and you may just have a new favourite dish for family and friends.

Called doh toh ree mook in Korean, these lovely jello squares can be made with a few different primary ingredients, the healthiest of which are acorn powder and green bean powder - both are readily available in Korean grocery stores. No need to add gelatin - if you follow the instructions below, it will come out just like jello without sugar. Read more about How To Make Korean Jello
