(Jumunjin: Ojingeo-ppang) Korean Traditional Dessert
Jumunjin in Gangneung, Gangwon-do is a coastal region famous for squid (ojingeo in Korean). Accordingly, ojingeo-ppang became Jumunjin's signature squid bread. The cute squid-shaped bread is amply filled with red bean paste filling. What makes ojingeo-ppang distinct from all the other Korean bread filled with red bean paste is that squid powder has been added to the paste. As a result, it actually has the flavor and aroma of squid.
It is best to eat ojingeo-ppang right after purchase, but those who want to keep it longer can put it in the freezer and defrost before eating. It is also a popular gift item since the cute looking treats come neatly gift boxed.
