Korean Mother asked whether I wanted to try some red ginseng in honey today, and before I could properly think through my answer a piece was shoved in my mouth. It was actually nice, although the taste defies easy description. Strange would be a word which came to mind, but for once 'chicken' would not. It tastes nicer than it looks!

It transpires that red ginseng is considered to be some kind of aphrodisiac in Korea, and studies have shown very positive results for impotence. I couldn't help wondering if Korean Mother might be hinting, in her own way, that she'd like a grandchild in this alleged Golden Pig year...
