  1. Hi everyone,
    Does anybody know how to make mugwort powder from fresh mugwort?
    I would appreciate any reply!

  2. Here you go! : )
    Blanch the ssuk in boiling water for about 3 minutes. Strain and rinse it in cold water a couple of times. Squeeze out excess water. If you have a lot of ssuk, at this point, you can divide it into portions. Put it in a plastic bag and freeze it. I still have some of my frozen ssuk. I sometimes make doenjangguk or make rice cake.

    Good luck with your Korean cooking!

    Stay well,
    Krynauw

  4. Oh, and if I want to powder it do I just put it in the food processor?

  6. KrynauwOtto2,
    Haha, I forgot to explain how you make mugwort powder!

    Ok, after blanching the mugwort, squeeze out the excess water. Then dry it out thoroughly.

    Spread the blanched mugwort in a wide shallow basket and dry it in direct sunlight until it's totally dried out. Then grind it with a food processor or coffee grinder. Put it in a plastic bag and freeze it.

  7. Thanks Maangchi!
