[Sempio] Mom's Pickled Perilla Leaves

Sempio Mom’s Pickled Perilla Leaves comes in (real) handy when you need a healthy veggie banchan.

Yes, it comes in a can. But don’t let that scare you! It’s fresh perilla leaves that have been delicately pickled in Sempio’s renowned Soy Sauce, along with a hint of garlic and a touch of gochugaru. The reason we love this product is the taste of the soy-sauce marinade. It has the right balance of umami, garlic and spice. But most importantly, it's not overly salty.  (Often times, store-bought perilla kimchi tastes way too salty!) Sempio nailed the pickling sauce with this product. 

Buy a few and store it in your pantry. Whip one out during your next BBQ cookout or when you're traveling abroad. In fact, I used to pack a few for my extended business trips in Europe. Nothing like the taste of pickled perilla leaves to remind you of Korea!

Note: The Spicy version is not that spicy. It has just slightly more gochugaru added to the pickling sauce. If you're having trouble picking between the two, try the original flavor first.

Mom's Pickled Perilla Leaves by Sempio

I recently bought this product as I had never tried it before. It is delicious...not too salty and its herby/umami flavour is a great accompaniment with white rice as well as other Korean dishes.

Just like my Mom used to make

Seriously, it's just like my Mom used to make, except its slightly less salty.

Taste wasn't what expected

As with many things you haven't tried in Asia, yet, the taste might surprise you! When I saw that it's pickled, my expectations were that these would be very sour. It turns out it has mostly a mild and a little oily flavor =D Still It's a great wrap to go with your white/fried rice, just make sure the taste is up to your preferences!

          How is this product made? 

          Here is a recipe on how to make pickled perilla leafs at home!
          Note: In this video, the perilla leaf is much greener - as it hasn't aged in the soy sauce
          The longer it does age, the darker the leaves turn (completely safe to eat!)
