    Hi Maangchi,

    Thank you for that!

    As you know, we are having a lot of rain this summer in the NYC area, and now it’s finally hot, so the plants are thriving. I am looking forward to using the leaves to make your kkaenip recipes, and to eat with samgyeopsal and kalbi.

    Hi, everybody,
    I’m copying and pasting the email that I received from Bluecrab today. His perilla leaves(kkaennip) are growing well! Let’s all wish him good luck and happy harvesting!

    "You probably recall that I sent you pics of my very small kkaenip plants about two weeks ago, so that you could post them on your forum.

    Here are two recent pics of the kkaenip plants. As you can see, they are growing very nicely.

    In order that their size can be known, I placed a US quarter on the ground behind one of the plants.

    I believe that I will have leaves large enough to eat in about 2-3 weeks. Can’t wait!

    Thanks again for all of your work on your website. Your recipes are invaluable!

    Best regards,"

    Hi Maangchi, thanks for posting that!

    The leaves are already a beautiful red-purple color on their undersides. I’m really looking forward to trying them in a couple of weeks.

    This is what mine looks like. One before the first harvest and one after.

    wow, I didn’t know kkaennip (perilla leaves) can grow in a pot! Thank you for uploading the photo! I know how precious they are to you. : ) When you make Korean style pancake, chop a few leaves and add to the batter with other ingredients. You will love the flavor! Or you can wrap some cooked rice and ssamjang in kkaennip and eat it.

    My ssamjang recipe is posted on my “grilled beef” recipe:

    I’m copying and pasting it for you here:

    ssam Jaang (dipping sauce)

    Mix the following ingredients:

    1tbs of hot pepper paste, 2 tbs of soy bean paste, ½ tbs of sugar, 1 clove of minced garlic, 1 tbs of chopped green onion, 1 tbs of sesame oil, ½ tbs of toasted sesame seeds.

    Hi Powerplantop,

    What a good idea to grow perilla in pots!

    Maybe I’ll start some of my seeds in pots and try to grow them indoors during the winter. The plants I have outside in the garden are still doing nicely, I think that several should be ready to pick in about a week.

    I’m planning to try Maangchi’s recipes for kkaenip kimchi and kkaenip pickles… they sound delicious.

    Good luck with your plants.

    The one downside of growing them in pots is they need lots of water! But to get an early start or apartment living using pots is a great idea.

    In my pictures that is only two plants. As the bigger leaves are clipped more branches will come out.

    Next year I will grow more kkaenip plants.

    everyone, do not forget to let one or two khaennip plants go to seed and die naturally in your garden (If you have gardeners,don’t let them clean your plants away prematurely) the seed will scatter and next spring you can have fun spotting all your naturalised knaennip plants as they come up around May(once again, don’t let the gardeners near the place until you have found your seedlings!) One year my gardeners weed-whacked my entire Khaennip crop not once, but twice! I think they must have wondered what was that (possibly illegal?) smell …. If you must have things in neat rows, the seedlings are very easily transplanted when they have got their second pair of leaves. Dig them up on an overcast day after a good watering. Handle them only by the leaves so you do not damage the root and replant them in rows or blocks with 8-10″ between plants. Water well and they will recover and thrive all summer. I do this every year and never run out of plants.

    I let my plants go to seed last year and now I have about 30 plants and they are over two feet tall.

    The leaves are huge.

    Today I made gamjatang with extra kkeannip leaves.

    Yesterday I made American style baby back ribs. I ate my portion by cutting off bits of meat and wrapping it in a kkeannip leaf with a little gojujong. I am eating leaves with everything.

    I am soo jealous of your plants! I have some now in my garden too, but they are still small… I hope they will survive the winter.

    You should make a huge batch of kimchi with that! I am planning to do that as well.

    Thank you,

    I wish I could share with you.

    These plants won’t survive the winter here in NY. They will seed and new plants will grow next year.

    I am generous with water, I think that helps.

    It so hard to buy Perilla Seeds in Malaysia. I really want to eat it. Anyone who might want to share their Perilla Seeds with me? (T-T)
