  3. Add 7½ to 8 cups of water and boil for 20 minutes over high heat.
  4. Lower the heat to medium and boil for another 25 minutes. If it boils over, take off the lid.
  5. Add 1 cup of sugar. Stir and cool it down.
  6. Remove the stem of the dried persimmons and wash thoroughly.
  7. Strain cinnamon sticks and sliced ginger in a colander.
  8. Pour it into a glass jar or glass bowl and add the persimmons.
  9. Put the lid on and keep it in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours. It will keep in the fridge for more than 1 week.

    Leaving comments sometimes doesn’t work. It always happens. It does not seem to have any problem now. You can leave your comment under jjajangmyun recipe.
    I can’t open several emails from my youtube audience today. When I try to open it, it never goes to inbox. I don’t know why. But maybe tomorrow I will try to open it again.

  7. Manngchi, I want to post a comment under jja jjiang myun but there was a problem. Can u please fix it so I can post there in response to my earlier myun comment. Thanks.

    You can make your own dried persimmon. Peel the persimmon and dry it. To dry them, you have to choose hard persimmons instead of soft ones.

    Check out youtube by typing “making of dried persimmon”.

    Good luck with making your own dried persimmon.

  9. First of all, you are an amazing cook ! I think it’s a really nice from you that you want to share your recipe ! Ok , so my problem is that the supermarket of my town only have persimmon ( not dried ). I was wondering if i could dry it myself, and if i could, can you tell my how. Thank you !

    Dear Koe,
    I know what it is. Dried anchovies side dish. Several people have contacted me to request the side dish. I already included it in the list of my future cooking videos. Thank you for your interest in my recipes!

  13. Hi Maangchi
    Really wonderful of you to share all these cooking videos. When I can get hold of the correct ingredients, I will try them out. I wonder if you can show us in future how to make one of my favourite banchan, little dried fish side dish?
    Thanks :)

    The rice beverage you had is
    “shik hye” in Korean. Your request is accepted! : )
    It is sold in cans at a korean gorcery store.
    “식혜” in korean.
