[Jirisan Chereum]聽Untoasted Perilla Oil

Jirisan Chereum has two key selling points:

The first is that they use only 100% Korea-Grown Perilla Seeds. Nearly all other Korean brands import their perilla seeds from abroad to keep prices low. However, Jirisan Chereum is a small local operation (owner shown below) that competes on quality. In fact, they grow their own perilla seeds in Korea, near the base of Jirisan Mountain. The company is in control of their entire oil production - from seed cultivation to oil extraction.聽聽

Second, their Perilla Oil is pressed-to-order. Unlike large food conglomerates, Jirisan doesn't mass-produce their oil at one time. Instead, they press just enough seeds to fill each order. The perilla seeds are sightly toasted at a very low temperature and squeezed only once. The extracted oil is then filtered two times for a clean, superior taste.

Simply said, it's Korea's finest perilla oil.

Lovely nutty milky taste

I really like this. I was worried it might lack taste as it is un-toasted but it has a lovely distinct slightly nutty milky taste. To be honest It took me after 3rd time eating to like the taste of it as I am more used to the toasted sesame oil taste. I drizzled some to my brown basmati rice with salt. I love the taste now. I also try to put it to lukewarm food and no food that is hot as omega 3 is very fragile to heat.

          How do I use Perilla Oil? 

          In Korea homecooking, perilla and sesame oil are often used as substitutes.

          But Perilla Oil is especially popular for tossing namul banchans like Eggplant Namul, Spinach Namul, Gosari Namul and Aster Namul. You can also use perilla oil to garnish dishes like Spicy Braised Tofu and Bibimbap. Or simply use a few drops on your eggs in the morning!
