Description

Straight Out of the Freezer, Delicious Cheongdo Persimmon Malengyi

Koreans love their persimmons.  They have them right when they are ripe and crunchy; when they become the extra-ripen, soft, and far sweeter hongsi; and even as frozen hongsi.  They dry them whole, hanging in the natural breeze until they become the very chewy and sweet gotgam to enjoy over winter, or only semi-dry them into what we call malengyi, a supple yet chewy treat. What we bring you is Persimmon Malengyi by a company called Ice Ripe Persimmon.  They take rather flat-shaped seedless persimmons called bansi grown in Cheongdo, Gyeongsangbuk-do, and dry them after cutting them into bite-size pieces.  The orange-colored chewy persimmons are loaded with beta-carotene and way too easy to fall in love with.

We all know beta-carotene is good for us.  Persimmons are also rich in vitamins A and C, antioxidants, dietary fiber, and tannins. And the Ice Ripe Persimmon Cheongdo Farming Association uses its unique technology to ensure none of these benefits are lost while dehydrating the fruit into malengyi.  In fact, the drying process increases the nutrient content.   The vitamin C of Malengyi is six times that of a hongsi, the extra-ripen persimmon. It’s a great snack to boost your immune system for the fall and winter and keep away the cold.

So how do you make this sweet and chewy persimmon malengyi that is even good for you?  A beautifully ripe Cheongdo bansi is peeled, cut into three or four pieces, then dried, and aged in the pristine air of Cheongdo under the sun.  It is perfect for storing it in your freezer and having it cold.  Even though it’s dried fruit, the inside is soft and moist, so it’s like eating a sugared jelly cold.  But this is nature’s sweetness, so a jelly has nothing on a malengyi.  We dare say it could be just as good as ice cream!

 

※ A Note of Caution

 

Once you start, you may not be able to stop eating until the bag is empty! If you’re watching what you eat, be extra careful.

Freezer storage is a must.  Let it sit at room temperature for 1 minute, and it will defrost quickly to a perfect state to enjoy.  The persimmon may spoil if left out at room temperature for too long.

The white powder on the surface is the crystalized glucose and fructose of the persimmon itself, and it is perfectly safe to consume.

 

 

What You Should Know about Bansi from Cheongdo, Gyeongsangbuk-do

 

One of the best persimmon varieties in Korea and the only seedless one, making them far easier to have

★ An addictive chewy texture that has the consistency of somewhere between the dried persimmon (gotgam)  and the extra-ripen persimmon (hongsi)

★ Exceptionally soft with high moisture content and delightfully sweet with zero astringent taste

★ Easy to digest and classified as a cooling food according to traditional Korean medicine

★ Eating persimmons causes constipation is an exaggeration. Water-soluble tannins in the astringent taste present in unripe persimmons absorb water in the intestine to cause constipation.  Well-ripened persimmons can help relieve constipation as they are rich in dietary fiber.

★ Loaded with many beneficial substances such as vitamins and amino acids, which aid in preventing aging, recovering from fatigue, and preventing colds

 

냉동실에서 꺼내서 바로 먹어도 맛있는 경북 청도 감말랭이

감말랭이란 경상북도 청도군에서 생산되는 감 품종인 반시(모양이 납작한 편이라 반시라고 불러요)를 조각내 말린 것을 말해요.   감을 통째로 말린 ‘곶감’이 촉촉한 속살을 겨울에도 즐기기 위한 것이라면, ‘감말랭이’는 씨 없는 청도 반시를 한 입 크기로 잘라 먹기 간편하고 씹는 맛이 좋은 것이 장점이랍니다.  진한 주황색은 감이 베타카로틴 덩어리라는 것을 말하죠.  베타카로틴은 성인병 예방에 좋다고 알려져 있지요. 

베타카로틴 외에도 비타민 A와 C, 항산화물질, 식이섬유, 타닌 성분 등 감에 풍부한 영양소를 파괴하지 않고 수분만 날려 감말랭이로 만드는 것이 ‘아이스홍시 청도영농조합’의 기술이에요.  말리면서 영양소는 더 좋아지기도 하죠.  비타민 C는 홍시의 6배나 높아진다고 해요.  가을 겨울철 면역력을 향상시키고 감기를 예방하려면 감말랭이를 가까이 하세요.

감말랭이 만드는 방법은 일단 잘 키운 청도 반시의 껍질을 깎은 후 3~4조각으로 자릅니다.  이를 청도의 맑은 공기와 햇빛에 건조하고 숙성하면 달콤하고 쫄깃쫄깃한 영양만점 감말랭이가 완성돼요.  냉동실에 보관했다가 그대로 꺼내 차갑게 먹으면 아이스크림 못지 않은 별미!  말랭이지만 속은 부드럽고 촉촉해서 마치 표면에 설탕 결정이 있는 젤리를 차갑게 먹는 것 같은 기분이죠.  그러나 자연이 완성한 이 달콤함을 젤리가 결코 따라올 수 없어요.    

 

※  주의사항

한 번 개봉하면 결국 전부 먹게 되어 있어요.   다이어트 중이시면 필히 조심하세요 :)

보관은 냉동이 필수입니다.  실온에 1분 정도 두면 금방 녹아서 먹기 좋게 돼요.  장시간 실온에 두면 변질 될 수 있으니 주의하세요. 

표면에 핀 하얀 분은 감 자체의 포도당, 과당이 결정화된 것이고 품질엔 이상이 없어요. 

 

경북 청도 반시의 특징

  • 한국의 감 중에 제일이며, 유일하게 씨가 없는 청도 반시예요.  먹기가 한결 편하죠. 
  • 곶감과 홍시의 중간 정도의 식감이에요. 쫄깃한 씹는 맛이 정말 중독적이에요.
  • 유난히 부드럽고 수분이 높으며 떫은 맛 1도 없이 당도가 매우 좋아요.
  • 감은 소화가 무척 잘 되며, 찬 성질을 가지고 있어요.
  • 감을 먹으면 변비가 생긴다는 말은 과장이에요.  가끔 덜 익은 감이 떫은 맛을 내는데 그 안의 수용성 탄닌이 장내 수분을 빨아들여 변비를 유발한다고 하죠.  그러나 푹 잘 익은 감은 오히려 식이섬유가 풍부하기에 변비 완화에 좋아요.  
  • 비타민, 아미노산 등 유익한 성분이 많으며, 이는 노화방지, 피로회복, 감기예방 등에 두루 도움이 돼요.

Wonderfully Chewy

Divine flavour. These were not too hard, but they were pleasantly chewy. Strangely enough, mine arrived in a completely unlabeled container, unlike the one in the picture, but they were absolutely great and I have no complaints otherwise. It would be great to be able to buy this in a larger size.

Second time purchasing. They are so yummy!

This was my second time purchasing them. They are just so good. Such a pleasant chewy texture and not overly sweet flavor. Love to stock them in the freezer in the summer.
