Sikhye is a traditional Korean beverage made with barley malt powder (yeotkiereum: 엿기름), and rice. The taste is sweet and cold, with its own particular subtle flavor coming from barley malt. I love Sikhye because of the flavor! Without the flavor, it will be like a bowl of sweet water and rice. Actually it’s known to help your digestion which is true for me! After eating lots of delicious food on festival days, I would drink this Sikhye as not only for dessert but for my digestion. I believe it solves my clogged stomach! : )
  Barley malt powder 1 Pound
  Rice 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Sugar 2 Cup (32 tbs) (Adjust Quantity As Per Taste)
  Water 30 Cup (480 tbs)
  Pine nuts 1 Tablespoon
