Crown Daisy Jeon

쑥갓 전, SsukGat Jeon


Crown daisy, called “ssukgat” in Korean, is an edible chrysanthemum. In Korean cuisine, it is often used because of the unique flavor. It gives extra flavor to some dishes and soups, similar to the way some herbs are used in Western cuisine to add flavor. Crown daisy jeon is considered a healthy and tasty Korean pancake. Try this someday. :)
