Ginseng is known as "the secret of perpetual youth" in Korea. Koreans love to eat ginseng to recuperate their strength when they feel tired and low. It is usually available in dried form, which makes it easier to store for a long time. Ginseng is one of the most popular healthy foods, but people with high blood pressure or high body temperature should avoid eating it too much.
You can use ginseng in different ways. It is one of the main ingredients in Ginseng Chicken Soup ("Samgyetang"). Also, you can make ginseng tea, ginseng liquor, ginseng water or ginseng preserved in honey.
