    Hey Brigitte, I live in Montreal too so since you posted a comment once on the Sujunggwa recipe, I was wondering if you were able to find dried persimmon somewhere in Montreal, I’ve been searching for a long time with unfortunately no results. I wanted also to ask you where do you find the most suitable ingredients for Maangchi’s recipes, I tried Chinatown but there’s many korean ingredients that I don’t find over there. Thanks in advance

      Hey Roy!I’m not so sure about the dried persimmons,I usually make only the tea part without the juice,lol!However there is this Krean store on decarie near sherbrooke.You could probably search it on google maps.I find everything I need there so you could go there!You could maybe even find dried persimmons there!Good luck!
