Korean jujube red dates - daechu 대추

Other Staple Korean Ingredients

This dried date is widely used for its medicinal properties as well as its flavour, and could not really be compared to a Western date, apart from them both being sweet. It is famously used in the ‘baby chicken soup’ dish, as well as a wide variety of sweet treats and tea’s. It is not an essential store cupboard ingredient, but it does add a unique flavour profile if you are looking to create very authentic Korean dishes.
