Yangyang Traditional Market

Across Korea traditional markets are still a common feature. Taking place every five days in towns and even cities, the markets give a brief insight into an older part of Korea. For the most part these markets are straightforward occasions and possibly a bit like you could imagine in the so-called olden days, drawing in all the local populace for not only business but also social reasons.

Throughout you can see people meeting and doing business, while at the same time there is a good quantity of back slapping and hearty laughing by the stalls. There are rows and rows of people, mostly old women it has to be said, selling what is clearly the excess from their small gardens, and for them it seems to be as much a chance to get out and meet people, with the added benefit of actually making some money.


The Colors of Korea: Orange

Over the past month, a number of Korea bloggers have come together to participate in The Colors of Korea, a unique blogging project that aims to share with the world the beauty of South Korea's food, culture, and destinations.  Each participant of the project has been assigned a different color and will write a post to illustrate various aspects of Korea that represent his or her chosen color.  The posts will be published throughout this upcoming week and once all participants have contributed, a complete compilation will be released, cataloged specifically for your viewing pleasure.

Orange may not be the first color that comes to mind when thinking of Korea.  In fact, the more obvious icons that represent the nation exclude orange all together.  It isn't until one looks beyond the surface that the color's significance in the country's culture and history becomes apparent.

Salty Citrus-y Mackerel

I have to say that this recipe is AWESOME!

Really!

And that’s not to say that the other recipes that I post aren’t. They’re good too. But this recipe is seriously fantastic. Unless you don’t like fish. orangemackerel (29 of 31)


Dried Orange Peel

_MG_0905This is another food find! A natural, sweet, flavourful addition to your baked goods-

_MG_0904Dried orange peel! I bought this at Emart, but I’ve also seen it in a lot of the bulk medicinal herb section- the same place where you can find different aromatic wood, dried ginseng and other roots and jujubes. I’m not sure what Koreans use dried orange peel for specifically- but am guessing in some kind of soup or tea.
