Desserts are not common in Korea but they do enjoy some fresh fruit or a fresh fruit punch like this one. Very nice end to a Korean dinner or any other dinner This recipe was originally from "Eating Right" magazine 1993
- 2 quarts water
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 2 pints fresh strawberries, washed,hulled and thinly sliced
- 1 inch gingerroot, peeled and thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons pine nuts
- Boil the water and sugar together, stir until the sugar is dissolved, boil ten minutes and let it completely cool (about 1 1/2 hrs) Place strawberries& ginger in a large bowl and pour in the sugar syrup.
- Cover and put in the fridge for about 2 hours to chill.
- Remove ginger and pour into glasses or punch cups garnish with a few pine nuts on top and serve.
This was a delightful way to end my dinner last night :-) I didnt use the pine nuts as I didnt have any, but I dont think that that would make a huge difference!! Thank you for a nice, light way to end a perfect meal!
Bergy, this is so wonderful! A very nice, very light way to end a meal. This prep does something to the strawberries that is hard to describe. It makes them lighter somehow. I cooled the syrup more quickly by placing it in an ice bath. It is not 'punch' in the sense that many of us think of punch, but I won't (and didn't) let that stand in my way. ;) I also didn't use pine nuts. Though I love pine nuts, I just didn't want to use them in this. Thank you for another terrific recipe!!! :)
This was a huge hit and very refreshing. I used only 1/2 cup sugar and it was still plenty sweet. I also skipped the pine nuts.
