100% Korea-Grown, All-Natural
[Jirisan Chereum] Perilla Seeds Powder
For authentic-tasting Gamjatang (Korean Pork Bone Soup), you want a few heaping scoops of Perilla Seeds Powder.
In Korean, it's called Deulkkae Garu. And it's made by toasting and grinding perilla seeds into a coarse powder. It has a deep, earthy taste with a touch of minty, herbal flavor. The powder works beautifully on spicy Korean stews, Namul dishes and Temple-Style Korean cooking. Perilla Seeds Powder is very high in Omega-3 (ALA), making it a popular ingredient to experiment with in Korean homecooking.
But not all perilla powders are made the same! Jirisan Chereum - unlike large food companies - does not import cheaper perilla seeds from China or other foreign countries. Instead, they grow their own perilla plants 100% in Korea, near the base of Mt. Jirisan (pictures of owner below). The company also roasts its seeds at a low temperature to retain the seeds' full nutritional value.
The honey had a flavor I‚Äôm not used to. Still it is good. Both items I ordered - including the perilla seeds - arrived so quickly. And in great condition. I was worried. But they arrived perfect. I enjoyed the personal note. Excellent service. Also there was an extra note to remind me to refrigerate the spice. That was very thoughtful.
