Snow Jjuk

One morning when the porridge was too hot to eat, I served it topped with shaved ice.  I called it "Snow Jjuk" and a fun breakfast was born.  We ate the jjuk and talked about how ice on our "jjuk mountain" melted and ran down the peaks of the porridge forming streams and puddles, or "lakes" at the bottom.  Then, we stirred the jjuk and learned how water seaps into the ground making ground water.  And, just like our jjuk "travels" on the spoon to our mouth, the ground water evaporates or "travels" to the sky again to form rain and snow.  It was a deliciously fun science experiment that also encouraged the little ones to eat their porridge!

Snow Jjuk

1 recipe Plum, Pear, Mango, and Banana Jjuk
1 C shaved ice, kept in the freezer until needed
  1. Cook the jjuk.
  2. Place a serving of jjuk in a small bowl.
  3. Place a pile of shaved ice on top, forming a peak.
  4. Serve immediately.

NOTE:  This could be done with any of my jjuk recipes.  However, I think that the sweet jjuk with the "snowy" top feels more like winter!
