korean acorn jelly (tot'ori-muk)

jen kalb | Sep 19, 2000 02:02 PM

My daughter had acorn jelly while in korea recently and craves it. She said its a brown jelly made of ground acorns which is cut in squares and served with sesame seeds sprinkled over. I believe its a savory rather than sweet dish.

Does anyone know of a restaurant in NY that serves this dish, how to make it? (the korean grocery on 32nd sells acorn flour or starch, but I don't have a method).

Many thanks!

ps she liked the vegetarian korean food very much - the korean kids they were with got a kick out of grossing out the americans by eating fried cockroaches (!) and silkworms sold on the street.
