While most of you are welcoming spring arrival, I am enjoying the cooled down weather and autumn’s seasonal fruit. (It feels like I’m going against the crowd! I feel left out. Haha) Today I’m introducing SuJeongGwa (수정과, Korean Cinnamon Punch), which I am sure you heard of before. I intended to make this on Lunar New Years Day as a dessert drink, like a month ago! My busyness got carried on with other food and I didn’t get to make it then.
Sujeonggwa is a popular traditional dessert drink along with Sikhye (Sweet rice drink). It’s particularly consumed during the festive holiday’s such as New Years Day and Korean Moon Festival (Chuseok, also known as Korean Thanksgiving Day). It is known to help digestion and maybe that’s why it’s often served after having Korean BBQ at a restaurant.
