Spicy and Sweet Sujeonggwa

Sujeonggwa is made by simmering ginger and cinnamon sticks, sweetening, it with sugar or honey, and adding dried persimmons and pine nuts.

Ginger and cinnamon are well-known for their medical qualities, but they also give off a spicy and aromatic flavor when boiled in water. Sugeonggwa is a cold drink normally consumed in winter, since the dried persimmon which are the principle ingredient are available only after late autumn.
