Dried kkaennip

We picked up some kkaennip from the Greenmarket a few weeks ago. I plucked the leaves, washed them, and patted them dry. We ate some that same day, but I forgot about the leftovers in the fridge.

So we got dried kkaenip. I didn't put them in a plastic bag because I didn't think that they would get totally desiccated in the fridge. I guess now I know how to dry spices.

The only thing Mabel and I could think to do with them was to crush them and mix the leaves in with some cooking rice. I put them in a Ziploc bag, crushed them oyster cracker style, and dumped them in a pot of rice and water.

The result was really good. Not surprisingly, it tasted like kkaennip rice although I'm not sure if kkaennip rice is a thing. If not, then I guess now it is, at least in our household.
