(Kkaennip) In America this is often sold incorrectly as a type of Japanese shiso which it is not. Instead it is a traditional Korean herb known as kkaennip. It resembles shiso but has a very different -- and very seductive -- minty-apple-lemon scent. The leaves of this variety are bigger, flatter, and less serrated than Japanese varieties, but otherwise they have the same mauve undersides as the Japanese katamen-jiso bicolour varieties. It is used as a vegetable, fresh or blanched, in soups and stews, or it is pickled in soy sauce or soybean paste for kimchi and jangajji. The seeds are roasted and used like sesame.
